Haslam Park Primary School

Reception Windsor Class

Our class in named after Queen Elizabeth Windsor.  Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain was the longest-reigning monarch in British history. She celebrated 70 years on the throne in June 2022 with her Platinum Jubilee.

All the staff and children celebrated this event by performing songs and dances for each decade throughout her reign.

We are proud and very privileged to be named after a very special and important person whom was a patron of more than 600 charities in the United Kingdom.

                     Teaching Staff in EYFS

We have two teachers and one teaching assistant working with your child in Reception. We look forward to supporting your child with their learning journey throughout the year. 

                                                     Reading Books

At Haslam Park, we value reading as we believe that reading supports your child to develop their language skills, improves comprehension and increases their vocabulary. Research has revealed that children who read on a regular basis, achieve greater in education. Therefore, we try to listen to children read as often as we can in school. 

We ask that parents read with their child for ten minutes each day. Parents are required to write a comment in the reading record provided so that we can work together to support your child to make progress with their reading. 

We sell reading bags for £2:50 at the school office to keep your reading books and homework books in. 

                                           Phonics Homework
Every Friday, your child will receive some phonics homework in their homework book. Please send the homework back each Wednesday so that we can add new homework. 

We will also be sharing the link to the interactive resource that we use as part of our daily phonics lessons so that you can support your child with their current learning.

Take a look at this terms curriculum overview to see what your child will be learning over the next few weeks.

Great Start to Reception

The children have made an amazing start to their Reception class. They are settling in well and are building some lovely friendships.

Week beginning 19th September

Knowledge and Understanding of the world

As part of our autumn theme, we went on an autumn walk to look for changes in the environment. The children were excited to watch the leaves fall from the trees and they tried to catch them as they fell.
                                                                                                              We used the leaves to make some leaf print paintings. The next few weeks, we will learning more about the autumn season and we will be learning all about the local woodland animals and how they prepare for the winter months during autumn.
