Etz Chaim Jewish Primary School



Hello and welcome to Reception!


My name is Mr Prince and I am looking forward to teaching your children this year. I will also be teaching closely with Mrs Talisman, our Jewish Studies Teacher and Mrs Meyer, our Ivrit Teacher.


We will be supporting and encouraging your children to learn through play in the supportive and safe environment of the Reception classroom and Foundation Stage outdoor area. We will be getting to know the children on a 1-1 basis in order to bring their interests into the setting, ensuring all children are at the centre of their learning. The children will be encouraged to learn through play in both the indoor and outdoor environments. They will be free to make this choice as it is a free-flow classroom. Observations will be carried out regularly by the Foundation Stage Practitioners to develop meaningful activities to help the children reach their potential.


The children will begin to learn their phonics through the Read Write Inc. scheme and using the activities in the classroom to consolidate this knowledge. The children will be developing their mathematical skills in number, problem solving, shape, and space and measuring. The children will be learning through the activities and provisions in the classroom.


Mrs Talisman is looking forward to teaching Jewish Studies this year. The children will be learning all about the Chagim and Jewish life. They will also be working their way through the Aleph Bet, which will lead to our fabulous Aleph Bet party at the end of the year.


Just a gentle reminder to label your child's uniform including their hat, coat, shoes and kippot. The children will also need a full PE kit in the school's drawstring PE bag which must also be labelled. 


I look forward to look forward to welcoming you and your child to Reception
