(Reception) Columba

This week we will be taking in your child's reading book and record book. Please can you ensure that any school reading books you have are returned, thank you.

We recommend that you read and write with your child over the summer to maintain their phonics.

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

 

Thank you

Kind Regards

 

Miss Lister

As part of our topic "People Who Help Us" we had a visit from the fire brigade. It was very exciting! We got to have a look inside of the fire engine, squirted water out of the hose and even turned the siren on!

Computing Lesson - The children in Reception have been learning to log on to the local network using their own unique log in. They have learnt how to access a variety of programs and can all interact well with the software available.

People Who Help Us - As part of our people who help us topic we interviewed Mrs Taylor-Hinton. This was linked to our computer curriculum as the children have been learning about operating equipment (using a microphone)

Computing in Reception

When the children first start school we introduce them to the ICT suite where there is a computer for each child. During their first term in school they will learn about the different parts of the computer such as the monitor, mouse, keyboard and tower.

Every child in school as their own unique username and password which they use to access our local network (Computers in school). When you are only 4 and may not have experience of computers this can be a little tricky so we spend lots of time helping the children to become confident with this.

We also have a wide range of activities to develop mouse control and navigation.

Parents are welcome to pop in and see what their child is learning and to chat with a member of staff about their progress. We also run several family computing sessions where children can bring members of their family along to share their knowledge and experience.
For any further information about ICT in Reception please contact Mrs K. Cartwright at manston.primary@manston.leeds.sch.uk
