Welcome to Reception September 2018


Welcome to Reception at Gwyn Jones Primary School

Welcome to Reception! At Gwyn Jones we have two Reception classes, Miss Easdale's class (RM) and a class split between Mrs Lau (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Ms Doak (Thursday and Friday) (RS) . In Reception there are lots of people who will help you with your learning - as well as the class teachers there is Mrs Masters (RM) and Ms Canavan (RS) who cover the teacher's PPA time and our Early Years Practitioners Mrs Choudhry and Miss Parker (RM) and Mrs Almagrabhi (RS). 

Things To Remember

Please clearly label all your children's clothing and personal items.

We encourage children to dress independently so please practise zipping up coats and putting on shoes at home. Children may bring in a labelled bottle for water only, not juice please, which will be kept on the trolley between the two classrooms.

Your child will need a book bag to take reading books home weekly. These can be purchased on a Monday before school. 


EYFS Curriculum Spring 1 2019

We hope you enjoyed the Christmas break and we welcome you back to the new Spring Term in Reception. Our new topic for this half term is  'Journeys'. Many of you will have made journeys over the holiday and we will talk about these experiences, our journey to school and other familar (and unfamiliar) places.

Please find below this half term’s homework sheet. There are many ideas which you can use to support your child’s learning at school.

This half term the children will continue to learn how to read using phonics, you can support your child at home by helping them to practise the pure phonic sounds. If you are unsure how to pronounce them just watch this helpful video http://www.ruthmiskin.com/en/parents/. If you need any further support please ask any member of the EYFS team.

Our children are learning all the time, if your child says or does something significant at home please fill in a 'news from home' slip. These are available from your teacher or please inform a member of EYFS staff and we can write it for you.

We are lucky to live in London where there are fantastic museums and learning opportunities right on our doorstep. Do not forget you can visit the Science Museum; the Greenwich Observatory and Planetarium; the Museum of London and locally Hollow Ponds or Skelton’s Farm, all for free.
