Welcome to Reception


Reception Summer 1 April 18th 2018

It may not feel like it just yet weather wise but Summer Term has started at Gwyn Jones.

Welcome to Reception! We have two classes Miss Easdale's class (RM)  Mrs Lau's class (Monday, Tuesday Wednesday) Mrs Bickersteth (Thursday/Frisday) (RS) . In Reception there are lots of people who will  help your child with your learning - as well as the class teachers there are Mrs Jones (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),  Miss Kulpa and Miss Kellam. There are other people who will help you too - Mrs Liddington and Mrs Ruddock are our lunch time supervisors.

Things To Remember

As the weather is now milder please remember to send a sunhat in for your child to wear when learning outside.

Please clearly label all your children's clothing and personal items. Children may bring in a labelled water bottle which will be kept on the trolley between the two classrooms.


EYFS Curriculum Summer 2 2018

Welcome back after the Easter Holiday and we start our Summer Term off with a bang with SCIENCE WEEK!

We are starting the term off with a bang and Science week! We are learning about animals and their habitats, we have investigated the school pond and its surroundings, had a visit from a hawk, an owl and an eagle with Alan the ‘Birdman’ and we were very excited to also welcome 14 baby chicks to the world this week! And it is only Wednesday!

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 learning 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.

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.
