Reception - The Dragons 

 

Balance Bikes

The reception children were very lucky to have a session learning to ride a balance bike. It was run by the Bikeability trainers at Derbyshire County Council and was paid for from the Sports Premium money. 

The children were taught hold to safely get on and off the bike and how to push along with their feet and balance whilst riding. It is a great skill to learn prior to learning to ride a bike with pedals.

Reading words

Here are the fist 2 sets of reading words for your child to learn.

 

 

Dragons small and dragons tall

Show your claws and listen well.

We are Ridgeway Dragons, 

We are Ridgeway Dragons,

Friendly and smart

Best class of all.

 

 

Routines In Reception

Reading bags should be returned every Monday and Thursday. It is very important your child reads at school and at home each day. We only have a limited amount of each book and if they are not returned it may mean another group of children will not have enough books to read so please return bags on the correct days. Only bring books and reading record back in the book bag - this makes it much easier for staff to sort them. Keep all word cards at home.

PE is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children need black jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, a black sweatshirt and slip on pumps in a draw string bag (other bags- especially rucksacks - are too bulky  for the space we have on pegs)

A filled water bottle should be brought to school each day.

 

The class teacher is Mrs Naylor - who teaches on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

                      Mrs Gelipter - who teaches on Tuesday and Friday.

                  The Teaching Assistants are Miss Riley (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs                                    Geddes (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday)

Self Portrait using  '2paint 'on the computer

The children have been using a drawing programme called 2paint. They were able to select the colour they wanted to use, change the size of the brush they used and erase mistakes. I think they did very well and they were very pleased with their pictures.
