Thought for the Week - I think before I act; how I act affects how others treat me.

Reception 2021

Week Beginning 13.09.21

We are really enjoying getting to know our new reception friends as we continue to settle into our new class.

This week the children have been introduced to our rainbow challenges, where they complete tasks in the environment. Our rainbow challenge this week has been ‘I can write my name’ and the children have been keen to complete this challenge - such superstars!. 

In math's we have been continuing to explore numbers to 5 and creating patterns.

In phonics we have been learning to read and write the sounds ‘m’ ‘a’ ‘s’ ‘d’ ‘t’. This is also the focus of this week's homework and your child will be bringing home these sounds to practice.

Week Beginning 06.09.21

What a wonderful first week we have had settling into our Reception class! We have been enjoying getting to know each other and establishing our class rules and routines. It has been a very positive start to our journey in Reception.

Our topic this half term is ‘Ourselves’ and we have been enjoying making self-portraits, drawing who lives in our homes and engaging in role play in the home corner. We are now familiar with the different areas both inside and outside the classroom. In math's, we have been enjoying learning counting songs to 10 and practicing our number formation. In phonics, we have been learning our friends names and listening to the sounds that we can hear.

Next Friday, we will be having a parents meeting from 9am - 9.30am to put your mind at ease about your child’s transition into Reception.

Please take a look in the homework section of the website each week to support your child on their learning journey!
