Happy Half Term!

Reception have had a very busy and fun week indeed! We have been preparing for our spooky Halloween Open House and have had great fun making Halloween crafts. In English we made crawling CVC caterpillars which are creeping all over our classroom walls! We spent some time practicing our Halloween songs and are really quite confident with the words!

Well done to our Stars of the Week - You are terrific!

Have a wonderful, relaxing holiday and we will see all our lovely Reception children and parents on Monday 22nd October!

Week 7

The Reception children came back after the long weekend feeling refreshed and eager to learn. We had a great week learning our new sounds l/ll, f/ff and ss and remembered the double letters only ever come in the middle or at the end of words! We had fun reviewing and decorating our Tricky Words and used lots of different materials to make them look beautiful. In Maths, we went on shape hunts with Shape Finders, played Shape Bingo and learnt a brilliant new shape song. During our Topic class, we brought in pictures of our family and talked about who was special and why.

Well done to our Stars of the Week - keep being fantastic

Week 6

Reception have had a super busy week this week. We continued looking at shapes and learnt our new shapes - pentagon, hexagon and octagon. We explored how many sides and corners they had and if their sides were straight or curved. We learnt our new sounds r, h and b and practiced writing them as well as continuing to read and write some cvc words. In Topic, we discussed how we can be a good friend and what to do if we see someone feeling sad.

Congratulations to our Stars of the Week - you are amazing!

Have a lovely long weekend, see you all again on Monday! ☺👋

Week 5

What a lovely week it has been! We enjoyed our Topic lesson where we gave a talk to the other Recpetion classes all about things that had changed for us since last year. We learnt how to be a good audience and how to give a talk to lots of people. We did a fantastic job getting up and talking loudly and clearly so our friends could hear us. 

In English we learnt our new sounds 'ck', 'e' and 'u' and we found out that 'ck' is a special sound as it never comes at the start of a word - only in the middle or at the end! In Maths this week, we started looking at various 2D shapes and thinking about if the sides are flat or curved. We made our own shapes with string on the classroom floor!

Congratulations to our Stars of the Week - your teacher think you are super!

Week 4

Another great week for the Reception classes!
We had a lot of fun searching for our sounds of the week in the sand and having a go at reading and blending the sounds together. 

In Maths, we looked at all the different ways we could represent numbers using fingers, Numicon and numerals - and we learnt how to play 'Snap' with our friends. 

During our Topic session we discussed our new class with our classmates and talked about which things had changed, We realised that our teacher, classroom, playground and lunch-time routine were all different than in Nursery. Next week we will be giving speeches to the other classes about this.

 We enjoyed our ICT lesson and drew some beautiful digital pictures using the paint programme. 

Well done to our Stars of the Week - Keep up the good work!
