Welcome to Reception
|Blackbird Class||Sparrow Class||Robin Class|
This week we have been learning about being safe when we are using the internet.
We watched a story about a penguin called Smartie who learnt that you should always ask a grown up for help when you are unsure about something on your device.
We have also been learning about Chinese New Year.
We looked at where China is on a map and also about how they celebrate the new year.
In phonics we have been learning more Phase 3 sounds we have learnt oo, or, ur and ar.
If you have any of our spare clothes at home please can you return them as we are running low.
If you have any old uniform that you could donate then please do.
Year R have been very busy performing our Christmas Nativity.
The children have worked really hard on their singing and remembering what they have to say.
Thank you to everyone who came to watch it.
We have also been busy making things for Christmas which you will see very soon.
We have been very busy with all of our Christmas activities, we hope you like them.
Thank you to all parents who came to our Open Afternoon yesterday—it was great to see you in school.
Happy Christmas to all.
We have been reading the story of The Gingerbread Man recently.
We have sequenced the story and written the names of some of the characters using our phonic skills.
It is great to see the children using their phonic knowledge to read simple CVC words.
We would like to take this opportunity to say well done to those of you who are regularly interacting with Bug Club and reading the five books that are allocated each week.
It is evident during our phonics sessions who are.
Next Friday, 23rd November, the year group are going to explore Forest School please ensure your child has their wellies at school.
This week in Year R we have been learning about the numbers 0-5.
We have looked at what each number looks like and how it can be represented in different ways.
In Phonics we have been experimenting with the different sounds we can make with our voices.
We have looked at alliteration too this week.
WE all made aliens and gave them funny names like Ping Pang Pong and Fee Fi Faddle.
In PE we have been learning to throw a bean bag underarm.
Please remember to ensure that all of the clothes that your child has at school have their names on them.
We do our best to return items to their owners and names really help!
Well done everyone, we have now had our first full week at school.
We loved the visit from the farm on Thursday. It was so nice to see the animals up close.
This week we have been getting to know our environment and making new friends.
This week has marked a lot of firsts for us, our first time staying for lunch, our first music lesson and our first PE lesson.
Please can we ask that you make sure your child has their trainers or plimsolls in their PE kit as we will be introducing changing for PE next week.
It is advisable to provide your child with a tracksuit in their kit too as the lesson could be outside.
