Peake (Reception)

Welcome to Peake's webpage.

Our class is named after Tim Peake. He is the first British astronaut to visit the International Space Station. He spent 6 years training for this mission.
Why don't you see what other facts you can find out...

What a busy and fun half term we have had! I am so proud of how well the children have settled back into school life; they amaze me every day. I have loved watching them make new friends and explore their new environment. I can't wait to see what the next term will bring.

Materials

We teach the children their letter sounds using the Read Write Inc phonics scheme. Each letter sound has a picture to support your child writing and reading the sound. Below are the pictures and how we form the letter, using pre cursive handwriting. It is important your child remembers to 'whoosh up' at the beginning of the letter to ensure they are forming it correctly.

In our lessons we incorperate Numberblocks and we focus on a number each week. The children love to find out what our new number is and watch the episode on bbc iplayer.
