Reception

Welcome to Reception!

Our teacher is Mrs Pritchard. Mrs Nice (Tuesday) also supports the children with their learning. All of the adults in reception are very friendly and helpful in order to make sure that the children have the best start at Wintringham Primary Academy. 

 

At Wintringham Primary Academy, we have an 'open door policy'. We welcome you to discuss your child, their progress or any concerns you may have. We might not be able to talk to you straight away but we will endeavour to speak to you as soon as possible. You can also leave a message with the school office or send an e-mail to the school office who will pass it onto us - office@wintringham.cambs.sch.uk

 

Our parents, carers and families are all part of the learning journey. The adults at school would like it very much if you could note down any moments which make you think WOW on a star moments observational star! The adults at school have lots of copies in case you need any more. Please also look on the classroom door for the latest events and news. 

 

The children need to come to school every Monday (from Monday 28th September 2020) wearing their PE kits.

 

Every Friday the children will get a special treat as long as they have behaved well throughout the week.  At the end of each term the children will also get to take part in a whole day of treats ..... Reward Day.

Curriculum Overviews 
Parent Workshops
Promoting British Values in Reception

Democracy:

Speaking and listening activities promote discussions

Making decisions together

Listening to each other’s opinions

Turn taking, sharing and collaboration

 

Individual Liberty:

Freedom for all

Developing a positive sense of themselves

We listen to every child through pupil voice

Through our PSHE curriculum the children’s rights are promoted

The children are encouraged to make the right choices about how they learn and how they behave

 

Mutual Respect and Tolerance:

The classroom rules help children to understand how to share and look after each other

The children learn about different cultures, faiths and religions. They are encouraged to show respect and tolerance for different people, faiths, cultures and languages

The children study art and listen to music which reflects multicultural Britain

The children celebrate special days and festivals throughout the year

 

Rule of Law:

The children learn about their rights and responsibilities. They also learn about consequences of behavior and also learn to distinguish between right and wrong

The children have agreed to abide by the rules and understand that these rules apply to everyone

The Characteristics of Effective Learning

The characteristics of effective learning are important learning behaviours that we support the children to develop throughout the reception year. They are split into three categories:

 

Playing and Exploring - Engagement:

Can I do this?

 

Active Learning - Motivation:

Do I want to do this?

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/grownups/help-your-child-try-new-things

 

This is a useful website to explore the differences between intrinsic and extrinsic motivation and to find out more information about how to help your child to try new things at home and to develop a growth mindset. 

 

Creating and Thinking Critically - Thinking:

How do I do this? 

 

We can help children to become effective learners by playing with them, listening and responding to them, acting as a sound board, supporting them to pursue their own interests, inspiring them, modelling discovery learning and both guiding and supporting them (without taking over). 

                                          2020-2021

Dear Parents, 

 

To help your child continue in their learning over this lockdown, I have come up with resources for you to use at home.  Below will be the suggested timetable of activities for each day, along with the resources you could use. If you do not have access to a printer at home, please do not worry about printing these resources off. They are suggested resources and can generally be recreated from things you have at home. Thank you for your patience and support as we get through this lockdown period together. Stay safe

Good morning! I hope you are well and ready for today's learning. I am looking forward to both our group time session and our maths session on zoom today. I am also looking forward to catching up with you all this afternoon and talking about all of the wonderful learning you have been doing at home.

 

I hope you like the photo below of my cat Benny. I wonder if either you or someone at home can read the information I have posted below about cats and then work together to answer some questions? You need to read/listen carefully to be able to answer the questions and please post your answers on Tapestry.

 

You need to take care of cats. A cat has whiskers, a tail and paws. A cat will need a food bowl, a water bowl, a bed and some toys. Baby cats are called kittens. Kittens like to drink milk. If a cat is ill or hurt, you need to take them to the vet. The vet will help them get better.

 

1. A cat has whiskers.

          Is that true or false? 

 

2. What does a cat need?

         Is it a pen, a kennel or a bed?

 

3. What is a baby cat called?

         Is it a kitten, a calf or a puppy?

 

4. What do kittens like to drink?

          Is it water, milk or juice?

 

5. If a cat is ill or hurt, where does it need to go?

          Is it to a vet, a doctor or to the park?

 

Please find below your morning work and a useful resource you may want to look at during our group time session today. I hope you have been enjoying our live lessons so far this week and I hope you enjoy your activities today. Have a great day!

W.B 7th December 2020

We have now completed filming our Christmas play and the children have been wonderful. I am so proud of them and we are all excited to share the finished production with you next week. The children have been busy role-playing in our new Christmas cafe where they have enjoyed 'cooking' different food to be served to customers. The children have worked in small groups to make a Christingle using an orange to symbolise the world, red ribbon for Jesus' blood, a candle for light, cocktail sticks for the four seasons and sweets/raisins for all of God's creations. They also sat and listened to a presentation about Christingles and why they are made during the month of Advent. The children have been independently creating snowmen using cotton wool, making Christmas wreaths using paint and a scrubbing brush, writing an invitation for our upcoming Christmas party, making a Christmas 2D shape picture and also rolling a dice to help them to create their own snowman. On Friday, I sent home the children's knowledge organiser books. We use knowledge organisers to support your child to develop their vocabulary linked to the topics that we cover at school. Please spend time looking at and sharing the knowledge organisers with your child, encouraging them to use and talk about these words when speaking about activities they have completed at school. Please keep the knowledge organiser book in your child’s book bag when they are not being used so that they can be added to throughout the year. I also sent home the phonemes/tricky words from phase three, as well as some activities for the children to complete over the Christmas holiday. I hope you find these useful. Next week, we have lots of fun activities planned for the children, including; our Christmas lunch on Wednesday 16th December and our Christmas party during the afternoon of Friday 18th December. Thank you for your generous donations towards our party. A special visitor will also be coming to visit the children before the end of term too, it is all very exciting! Next week the children will be learning to read the tricky words ‘was’ and ‘my’ and will be learning the sounds ng and ee in our phonics sessions. Well done and thank you to all of the children for such a lovely week!

W.B 30th November 2020

The children were very excited when they came into school on Tuesday morning and saw all of their Christmas decorations hanging up inside the classroom and in the corridor. They also really enjoyed going to their first ever whole school assembly which was the ‘wishing the lights on’ assembly. The children had to close their eyes and wish really hard for the lights to come on on the Christmas tree. They also had an opportunity to hang their home-made Christmas decorations onto the tree. The children have finished off their learning about space this week. They have really enjoyed listening to the story 'Aliens Love Underpants' and have used puppets to role-play the story, as well as thinking of adjectives to describe the different aliens in the story. The children have independently been using their phonic knowledge to write facts about the moon using the mind map created earlier on in the week. I was very impressed with the children being able to record the sounds that they could hear in the different words and that they were starting to write simple sentences using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. For our outdoor learning this week, the children worked with the children from class 2 to draw a picture of a Christmas tree on the playground using chalk and then adding natural decorations onto it to create a symmetrical tree. The children have also been continuing to practise for the nativity performance and are getting very excited to show everyone just what they can do. For children who are speaking, please continue to rehearse and practise their lines at home as much as possible. Please note that all of the children's costumes must be in school by Monday 7th December. Next week the children will be learning to read the tricky words ‘we’, 'me' and ‘be’ and will be learning the sounds ch, ai and th in our phonics sessions.

W.B 23rd November 2020

This week the children's learning has been around the topic of space. On Tuesday, as a class, we created a mind map of what the children knew about space and they thought of some really great ideas, including 'There are lots of stars', 'Astronauts go to the moon in rockets' and 'Planets spin around the sun'. I have been doing benchmark assessments on the children's reading skills this week. I am very proud of the children and how far they have progressed with their reading. A note has been written in your child's reading diary and an observation has been added onto Tapestry to let you know which level book they will now be bringing home, along with a next step for your child to work on when reading. The children have been enjoying programming the beebot to make a journey across a map of space. They verbally planned the route around space focusing on using directional language, ensuring they made the beebot get to a point of interest on their journey. As the beebot was moving, they were asked to think about if the directions were accurate and if they needed to make changes to their plans. The children have been independently writing a list of things that they would take to the moon with them, making star constellation pictures using glitter on black paper, making rockets using a variety of 2D shapes, using pegs and tweezers to retrieve planets from space and acting out the story 'Whatever Next', which the children have also been exploring during group time this week. They used props from the story to act it out and then discussed items that baby bear should (e.g. a bottle of water and a watch) and should not (e.g. a dustpan and brush) take to the moon with him and why. On Tuesday the children will have their first virtual assembly which will be the 'wishing the lights on' assembly. The children will need to close their eyes and wish really hard for the lights to come on the Christmas tree. They will also have the opportunity to hang their home-made Christmas decorations on the tree, so if your child has made a decoration then please remember to bring it into school by Tuesday morning. Next week the children will be learning to read the tricky words ‘he’ and ‘she’ and will be learning the sounds z/zz, qu and sh in our phonics sessions.

W.B 16th November 2020

This week, the children have finished learning about the topic of food. As a class, we conducted an experiment to find out what happens to a variety of food when it goes off. They made predictions as to what they thought would happen to milk, yoghurt, houmous, a banana and a slice of bread if they were not kept in the fridge and instead kept somewhere warm. Today, the children were asked to make comments as to how these five items of food have changed. With an adult, the children have been using their phonic knowledge to write a list of things that they want to buy from the shops and I was very impressed with the children being able to record the sounds that they could hear in the different words. Perhaps the children could help you to write your food shopping list this week too? For our outdoor learning this week, the children worked with the children from class 2 to create a woodland animal out of sticks, made leaf rubbings and also made a boat that would hopefully float across the water (Miss Blyth has uploaded some photos from the children's outdoor learning this week). I am going to be completing benchmark reading assessments with the children next week so please continue to practise reading as much as possible at home, including asking the children questions about what they have read. Next week the children will be learning the sounds v, w, x and y in our phonics sessions. Our fruit and vegetable initiative from the government where each child will receive a healthy snack every day will begin on Monday. Thank you and I hope you all have a lovely weekend

W.B 9th November 2020

This week, the children have continued learning about the topic of food. As a class, we investigated what would happen when we put warm water over skittles. The children were firstly shown the equipment for the experiment and were asked to discuss what they thought we might be doing. The experiment was then set up and the children made some predictions about what they thought might happen, including 'There will be a rainbow on the plate' and 'The colour is going to come off the skittles'. After the water had been added to the skittles, the children were excited to see a rainbow start to appear and were then asked to make a comment about what they could see, e.g. 'The colours gone off the bottom onto the plate' and 'The colour is going into the middle, it's moving'. The children have also listened to the story Handa’s Surprise. They talked about the story, thinking about the characters and the plot. The children then tried some of the different fruits that appeared in the story, finally making fruit skewers using them. The children had to cut some of the fruit using a plastic knife. To celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali, the children each made their own Diva lamp. They were given a ball of clay and had to use their thumbs to make an indent in it in order to fit a tea light. They created patterns around the edge using tools and then once it had dried, were able to paint and add glitter to it. I hope you are enjoying these at home. For our outdoor learning this week, the children worked with the children from class 2 to complete a photo scavenger hunt to familiarise themselves with the grove which is in the centre of the school building. They also created their own chalk paths and handprint artwork. Next week the children will be learning to read the tricky words 'no' and ‘into’ and will be learning the sounds l/ll, ss and j in our phonics sessions. We are currently in the process of setting up the fruit and vegetable initiative from the government where each child will receive a healthy snack every day. In the meantime, if your child would like to bring a piece of fruit or vegetable for a mid-morning snack please put this in their book bag. Thank you and I hope you all have a great weekend

W.B 2nd November 2020

Welcome back after half term, it is so lovely to see the children back at school and hearing about what they have been doing during their week off. The children have settled well into their new school, they have been enjoying exploring their new surroundings and meeting the children in class 2 at playtime, lunchtime and during shared outdoor learning sessions. For Bonfire Night, the children made firework pictures using the touch screen on the laptop and also using glue, salt and different watercolours. They made patterns using firework noises, e.g. bang, whoosh, fizz, bang, whoosh, fizz and then wrote down some of these words onto an outline of a firework. The children have been independently adding together the number of seeds found on two strawberries before writing down the answer, writing signs for our new fruit and vegetable shop role play area and using play-dough to replicate different fireworks. For our outdoor learning this week, the children worked with the children from class 2 to draw around each other's bodies on the playground and then wrote some labels for the different body parts. Next week the children will be learning the sounds r, h, b and f/ff in our phonics sessions. They will also be continuing to practise segmenting and blending sounds for reading and writing.

27th October 2020

The Wintringham staff team have been working hard to prepare the classrooms ready for the children starting back with us after half-term. The first five photos are where class 2 will be (currently waiting delivery of tables which will be here before the children start) and the final 5 photos are where class 1 will be. We also have plenty of space to spread out into the third classroom (in the middle) when required. We are looking forward to welcoming the children into their new school on Tuesday 3rd November. Have a lovely rest of the holiday. Love Mrs Pritchard and Miss Blyth x

W.B 19th October 2020

Class 1 and 2 enjoyed visiting their new school on Friday this week. Here are some photos from their visit. We hope you are enjoying the presents the builders have given to the children

W.B 12th October 2020

This week, the children have been learning about the story 'A Brave Bear'. At the beginning of the week, the children were told the first line of the story 'Everything was hot', without being shown the front cover, the title of the book or any of the illustrations. The children discussed with their talk partner and then drew a picture of what this could be in relation to and their ideas ranged from volcanoes erupting, a bowl of soup, a radiator and warm summer days. Later on in the week, the children were shown the illustration that went alongside the sentence 'Everything was hot'. The picture was of two bears (daddy bear and baby bear) lying down in their cave on a hot summers day. The children then listened to some sounds of the forest and worked with their partner to add more detail to the illustration that they were given, e.g. drawing trees, flowers, a waterfall and some birds flying in the sky. The children have been independently writing about different parts of the story, cutting/sticking pictures of bears in the correct size order, estimating/counting the number of bears that can be seen in a picture and also making their very own bear pictures using brown paint and a plastic fork. For this week's forest school session, the children listened to the story 'Leaf Man'. They then went out onto the field to make their own leaf men using materials they collected outside. They collected leaves along with other natural materials and placed these on a laminated white sheet so they stood out from the field. When we came back inside, the children each took on the character of leaf man and said/completed the sentence "I am leaf man and I like .....". Next week we will be learning the sounds c, k, ck and e in our phonics sessions. The children will also be continuing to practise segmenting and blending sounds for reading and writing. Please continue to support your child at home by looking at their reading books and asking them questions about the setting, events and characters in the story. I hope you all have a lovely weekend

W.B 5th October 2020

This week the children have been learning all about their five senses. A day was spent exploring each sense and the children enjoyed a range of activities, from making a bowl of silly soup, listening to the different sounds that various musical instruments made, writing down what they could see through a pair of binoculars, touching their heads, shoulders, knees and toes and labelling the parts of the body and also smelling different things (they all liked the smell of the chocolate sauce and the jam, but not so much the coffee). The children have been busy independently painting large portraits of themselves, making their own masks and finding out which is the most popular eye colour in reception. Please could I remind parents to write a comment in your child's reading diary when you have read with them. This could be to say that they enjoyed the story, they could identify some key words or they used the pictures to help them to read the story. Every time the children have read five times at home, they get to move their photo up on our reading snake and will receive a certificate for 25, 50, 75 and 100 reads. Over the next two weeks the children's learning will be based around the story 'A Brave Bear'. They are going to learn to re-tell the story and will also use bears to help with their counting, addition, subtraction and positional language skills. The children had their first forest school session this week and these will continue on Friday afternoons for the rest of the year, so please make sure that your child is sent in with a coat and if their wellies are not already in school, please could they be brought in for these sessions. For this week's session, the children went on the field to complete a scavenger hunt to find some special items that can be found in the outdoor area. They took it in turns to take a picture from the special bag and then went on a hunt for this item using the binoculars to help them find it. The children went to find feathers, birds, earthworms, ladybirds, leaves, spider webs and muddy footprints. They were fascinated by the helicopter seeds and what happened when they threw them up in the air. Next week we will be learning the sounds d, g and o in our phonics sessions. I hope you all have a lovely weekend

W.B 28th September 2020

This is the children's first full week at school and some of them have been quite tired. They have been measuring with their feet and finding things that are bigger and smaller than their foot. The children have also been using different things around the classroom, e.g. magazines, shoes and dinosaurs in order to measure how tall they were which made them laugh alot! The children have really enjoyed sharing their 'All about Me' boxes with the rest of the class. It was lovely to see all of the objects, drawings and photographs that are so special to them. Thank you for taking the time to make a box with your child. The children have been busy independently adding the correct number of dabs onto each of the Numberblocks, practising their mark making using paint in a zipped wallet, making a variety of models using the popoids and also exploring the different activities in the outdoor area. Next week we will be learning the sounds i, n and m in our phonics sessions. Please note that on Monday, the children need to come into school in their school uniform and bring their PE kit to change into during the day. This is due to individual school photographs being taken. I hope you all have a lovely weekend

W.B 21st September 2020

The children have been busy writing a fact file about themselves this week where they wrote their name, their age and their favourite colour, before drawing a picture of themselves. They have impressed me with their beautiful drawings and mark making skills. During their independent play, the children have been counting the correct number of beads to match a given numeral, painting a picture of their family and drawing patterns in a variety of materials, i.e. sand and rice. In phonics, the children have been learning to listen carefully to the sounds that adults have been orally segmenting. They have then been blending the sounds in their heads to understand what the adult was saying - I have been very impressed. Next week we will be learning the sounds s, a, t and p in our phonics sessions. The children are enjoying their lunch at school and the puddings are definitely their favourite part. Please note that school will start at 9.00am and finish at 3.15pm every day from next week. Please ensure that your child brings a pair of wellington boots into school next week, as well as wearing a suitable outdoor PE kit to school every Monday (starting from Monday 28th September). Throughout next week, is the children's chance to bring in their 'All About Me' boxes, so please bring those in on your child's allocated day. Monday 28th September is the date that we would like the children's baby photos to be brought into school please. In addition, if you would like to purchase your child's Christmas card design, the order form needs to be returned to school by Friday 9th October. If you have any questions, then please come and speak to me. I hope you all have a lovely weekend

W.B 14th September 2020

WOW! What a brilliant week we have had. The children are settling in well and are enjoying coming into school every day, which is really lovely to see. They are quickly getting used to the routines of school life and learning to access all of the various activities on offer. The children have been busy playing in the home corner, taking on a role in their play. They have also been making arrangements with various 2D shapes, making self portraits, ensuring that they look at their facial features in the mirror, making a game of splat the phoneme using a fly swatter and have been developing their fine motor control by transferring coloured pompoms into different coloured containers using a pair of tweezers! I am very proud of each and every one of them. I am looking forward to next week where the children are going to be staying at school to eat their lunch! Please note that all of the children are starting school at 9.00am and finish at 1.30pm every day next week. I hope you all have a lovely weekend
