Week of the 14th
This week in Reception we have been looking at the book 'Here we are' by Oliver Jeffers. It has helped the children to learn all about our wonderful planet and most importantly, how to look after it. We explored different creatures on land and underwater! The children created individual hands to show that we are all special in our own way and that there is a sense of belonging here at Wendell Park no matter how different we are to each other!
- Please ensure you return your tapestry letters to you class teacher if not returned already.
- This Thursday at 9am (24th) there will be a reading and phonics workshop for parents to support your childs learning at home- this will be done via zoom so keep an eye out for the link
A few reminders:
Please can your child bring in a named water bottle to school each day.
Please can your child bring in a piece of fruit (in their book-bag/backpack) to have at their afternoon snack time.
PE sessions will start after half term, once the children have settled in. PE will be on Thursdays and the children should arrive at school in their PE kit that day, not school uniform.
Please don't hesitate to contact us via email if you have any concerns or queries.
In Nursery & Reception at Wendell Park School we use Tapestry, an online learning journal, to keep track of of your child's progress, achievements and learning; we actively encourage you to be part of this process too by sharing snapshots of your child's experiences and activities at home. Please keep an eye out for a letter coming to you soon via email with more information about Tapestry and asking you to sign a consent form (please send back in your child's book-bag/back pack). There will also be a parent workshop, explaining more about it taking place on Thursday 14th January, 2021 9:00am-9:45am.

Homework & Activities
Homework is designed to help your child with letter formation and maths skills. Homework will be handed out weekly after the Autumn half term.
Please hand homework in each Wednesday.
Reading books are given to help support your child as they learn to read and build the skills they need to read. Please find a moment in the week to read with your child and make a comment in their reading record. We will begin sending these out towards the October half term.
Reading books will be handed out on a Monday/Tuesday; please ensure your child's book is in their book bag every day so that we can change them each week.
If you have any questions about phonics or reading, please speak to your class teacher or Mrs Peters (Deputy Headteacher and Early Years Leader).
Please join us via Zoom for our Reading & Phonics parent workshop on Thursday 24th September 9:00am - 9:45am.
