Week 4/10/21

This week we have begun to explore our senses! We have listened carefully to some sounds and discovered what water, walking through mud, walking through a forest and a snow storm all sound like. We have also felt items in a box and guessed what they were! These are our hearing and touch senses. We will be learning more about our senses next week. 

Outside, we have been learning lots in the rain that was left on the floor! We built bridges to get across safely.

We have also been searching for signs of Autumn. The children have enjoyed using the clipboards and checklists, going round our Outdoor Area looking for squirrels, yellow leaves, brown leaves and acorns.

The class have continued to master their skills for phonics, using glitter sand to write their sounds in. We are continuing to practise the sounds m, a, s, d, t. The class have also now started to use the magnetic letters in our Phonics lessons, which has been super exciting!

Best wishes,

Miss Stratton, Mrs Anderson, Miss Green, Ms Snow and Miss Whitford.

Week 27/9/21

This week we have received a letter from the bear! He explained that he is a friendly bear and that all he wanted to do was play. The bear did not mean to scare us in the story 'We're going on a bear hunt' after all. The children were challenged to write a letter back to the bear to apologise. 

 

In Maths this week, we learnt how to use the unifix cubes and the numicon. We had great fun making towers and comparing numicon tiles!

 

We have been making bear masks in our continuous provision time, thinking about what parts of the body a bear has. The children's work has been displayed in the classroom for everyone to see.

In phonics, we have now learnt our first 5 sounds m, a, s, d and t. The children have enjoyed learning a new sound each day and are practising their letters in their writing.

Please remember PE is on a Monday and the children need to come to school in their PE kit.

 

Best wishes,

Welcome to Robins class!

Reception children have been welcomed into our school and have had an amazing first few weeks!

We have had fun learning our new routine, attending our weekly celebration assemblies and have this week attended our first singing assembly with the rest of the school. We have also had an amazing new water wall built for our outdoor area which the children were fascinated by!

In our Literacy lessons, we have been taking part in lessons based on our half-term book 'We're going on a bear hunt'. We have learnt who the author is and have joined in with him performing the story. We have absolutely loved joining in with the story, going through the 'swishy swashy' grass and the 'hoooo-woooo' snowstorm! 

In our Maths lessons, we have learnt to count up to 5 using a fives frame. We have been singing lots of songs that count to 5, including 5 speckled frogs and 5 currant buns. We even got the children on a fives frame!

We have also been learning to write our names and have learnt the first two sounds in our Read Write Inc Phonics scheme. The children now know the sounds 'm' and 'a' and are having a great time practising writing the letters.

Please remember PE is on a Monday and the children need to come to school in their PE kit.
