Summer 2 learning
Summer Reading Challenge and Information.
This year’s challenge.
Every summer, thousands of children take part in the Summer Reading Challenge through their local library. This year, with normal library opening unlikely before September, children can take part in the ‘Silly Squad’ challenge online. It’s all about encouraging children to keep up their reading at home. The challenge is aimed at 4-11 year olds, but younger children are welcome to join too.
This year, the challenge will run from June to September. Children can keep track of the books they are reading on their own website profile and can find book recommendations, as well as activities, quizzes, videos and games to keep them entertained at home. They can read as many books as they like, but if they manage to read 6, they can download a certificate at the end of the challenge.
Library staff will be creating special craft activities, available on the Cambridgeshire Libraries Facebook page throughout the summer.
Families can join the library, borrow e-resources for children and adults (books, audio-books, comics and magazines) and see our timetable of online events here – https://www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/residents/libraries-leisure-culture/libraries. Any updates to our offer, including news of reopening plans from the 6th July, will be posted here and on our Summer Reading Challenge webpage.
Please return your child's phonics tin to school before the end of term, you may keep the phonics/tricky word/number cards to practise over the summer.
Summer 1 Learning
I hope you are having fun working through your home learning pack. Remember to play lots and talk about what you are doing. See how many questions you can ask the adults in your house each day!
You can also send me an e-mail using starz. The office has your password so give them a call and send me a message. Maybe you could tell me how well your cress is growing. Remember to keep the cotton wool moist not soaking wet.
You will find the link above.
Hope to hear from you soon!
Welcome to the Reception page for 2019-2020
Throughout Reception everyone works hard to develop each child's capacity to learn, helping them to make good progress and develop excellent attitudes. At All Saints Inter-Church Academy we believe that children learn best through play and by leading their own learning by following their own ideas and interests. We want children to become confident, independent learners and we encourage and guide children in using their own initiative to help solve problems which may occur in every day life. Children learn an astonishing amount in their early years and we ensure we focus on how children learn alongside what they learn.
To enable us to have a deeper understanding of your child’s interests and ability, we do ask you to keep us informed of any milestones or activities which you and your child are proud of that may have happened at home. 'Proud Clouds' are regularly put in your child’s book bag for you to complete.
Please scroll to the bottom of the page for curriculum information, including details of characteristics of effective learning, letters and curriculum fliers.
In Early Years, we observe each characteristic of learning and encourage children to develop their learning skills and techniques which in turn helps them become the best learners they can be. Further details on the characteristics of learning can be found below.
The Early Years curriculum is split into 7 areas. These are further split into Prime and Specific Areas. Children need to achieve the Early Learning Goals in all Prime Areas and in Literacy and Mathematics to achieve a Good Level of Development by the end of Reception. These areas are as follows:
Personal, social and emotional Development
Communication and Language
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design.
The documents below give an outline of what children are expected to achieve at each age band. Achievement is split into 22-26 months, 30-50 months, 40-60 months. Throughout Reception, children will be assessed against the development matters statements which are found in each age band. At the end of Reception children are assessed against the Early Learning Goals.
