This week in Reception

7th November

Hope for the World and Mankind Week...

This week we have explored 'Hope' in many different ways. We have been learning about harvest and baked our own bread to then share with people around school. To mark Remembrance day we each created a poppy to add to the whole school display. 

Today we also learnt about Diwali and how it is celebrated. We had great fun exploring this festival through music and dance! 

17th October

What an interesting week in Reception! This week we were visited by one of the bears who left muddy footprints and shopping bags in our classrooms. This inspired us to explore news reports and factual writing linked to bears.

In maths we have been continuing to explore numbers to 10 through games, activities and in music. Please continue to look for numbers at home and when out and about as this will support your child in understanding the importance of number in everyday life.

10th October

We are already having a fantastic week in Reception. On Monday we went on an Autumn walk in the school grounds. We collected a range of natural objects and added these to class displays. We have also been using these natural objects to support our counting in Maths (0-10). The children are continuing to learn the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will be exploring character feelings through drama, discussion and in writing.

Today the whole school explored mental health to mark World Mental Health Day. In Reception we focused on the importance of feelings and both Mrs Morgan and Mrs Reid were very impressed with the children's ideas. 

Reading continues to be a key aspect of the Reception year.  If you have any questions about how to support your child then please speak to your child's class teacher. 

3rd October

Another busy week in Reception! We have been exploring the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears through drama and have also made our own porridge by following simple step instructions. The children have been working extremely hard to retell the story using actions. There will be a copy of the story in book bags next week for you to practise at home.

We are continuing to investigate Autumn and are building our own class displays using natural materials. It has been great to see the children bringing in their own items. We hope to see this continue as next week we will be going on an Autumn walk around the school grounds. 

26th September

Reception had a fantastic time walking the mile today! We talked about how to stay healthy and the children came up with some fantastic ideas. Our outdoor area has been very busy with imaginative play and storytelling, especially with activities linked to Goldilocks and the Three Bears. 

Please continue to read daily at home. The children have made a fantastic start to reading already! 

19th September

This week we began to read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have been measuring porridge, starting writing and even acting out the story with props. We are going to be exploring size linked to the story and creating our own painting.

The children have been amazing in phonics and have already been exploring the a and s sounds. The sound books will be going home this week - Thank you to everyone who attended this morning's phonics meeting. All information is now on the website. 

14th September 

What a fantastic first week in Reception! The children have been very busy and have had great fun exploring their new school.

We had an exciting first PE lesson and have enjoyed using the play trail throughout the week. There continues to be lots of imaginative play in the outdoor area with new friends being made all the time! 

Well done to everyone for such a great start to reading. Books will continue to be changed after being shared at home. 

We are all already looking forward to another great week!
