Welcome to Reception

EYFS Macmillan Event Information

You will have seen the letter sent out recently regarding ‘Climb Against Cancer: Newdale walk up the Wrekin to raise money for Macmillan’, with details of how you can support this cause through sponsorship on our justgiving page.

On Tuesday 25th June, our very youngest pupils in Nursery and Reception will be taking part in a sponsored walk along a specially planned route around the school grounds. They will use our sports pitches and the play areas to form the shape of a heart to symbolise the love and support we all feel towards those affected by cancer, followed by ten laps around the sports pitch!

In line with the rest of the school, we would like children to come dressed in the chosen colours to represent the event.

Please can children come dressed in:

RECEPTION –  WHITE TOP

NURSERY – RED TOP 

We do have a small amount of school sports bibs should anyone need support.

We look forward to EYFS taking part and will be sure to share lots of photographs. Thank you for your continued support.

What My Child is Learning About this Half Term

New to School!

Welcome to Newdale Primary School. Here are some welcome videos from our team, so that you can see what your new lovely classrooms will look like when you start Reception in September.

Attached is our parent booklet, with some key information for parents: Parent Information Booklet

Here is our pupil booklet. This is designed to share with your child, to talk through what their experience of school will be like. We recommend you read through this several times before starting in September to support in the transition process: Welcome to School Pupil Booklet 2024

 

Reception Virtual Tour At Newdale Primary School:

The Newdale team have put together a virtual tour of both Reception classes, our lunchtime routine and our Reception outside area. These virtual videos are available for all to watch, particularly our new families that are interested in sending their child to our school in September.

You can click on the links below to view the videos through our YouTube channel. We hope you enjoy them :)

Reception Homework

In Reception, our main priority is encouraging children to love reading and to become readers themselves!

Your child will begin to learn phonics from the very start of Reception and will do this through our chosen Read, Write, Inc scheme daily. As part of this we will send home a selection of books suited to your child’s reading level so that they are able to confidently decode the words in their book phonetically. Each week, they will bring home a book that they will have been practising throughout the week in their lessons, a ‘Bookbag’ book which is a book they have not previously read, but that contains the sounds they are currently practising and they will also have the opportunity to change a ‘Share a story’ book daily. We would not expect your child to read the ‘Share a story’ book independently, but rather take the time to share with you. This could be as a bedtime story or at another relaxing point in the day, where the love of reading can be nurtured and every opportunity to develop your child’s vocabulary can be taken.

We send home ideas within your child’s personal reading diary of questions you could ask whilst reading the book to encourage your child’s understanding. For example, ‘Can you tell me what is happening here?’, ‘How is this character feeling?’ and ‘How do you know?’

In addition to this, each week you will receive a bank of Read, Write, Inc videos sent directly to your Parent Pay account. These are videos directly from the scheme that have been sent specifically for your child to watch and practise the sounds and words at home that they have been learning at school that week.

We will also send home handwriting practise sheets to support the development of correct letter formation.

From time to time, we may also set other exciting home challenges. You will find these posted directly to you on our ‘Evidence Me’ learning platform app, where you will be able to respond and upload photos if you choose or stuck in as a sheet in your home/school communication book.

If you would like any further support with this, then please do not hesitate to ask us.

Thank you for your ongoing support at home.
