Next week ( 21.05.18) Reception will be reading and creating our very own poem. The challenge is for your child to find out what a poem is .... rewards will be given.
Happy researching boys and girls
Week beginning 30.04.18
During our maths lessons, Reception children will be continuing to develop their addition and subtraction skills. We will be using practical activities to support this and squared paper to record our number sentences on.
To support your child here are a few games your child can play:
Just a quick reminder that the first day back after the holidays - Monday 26.02.18- will be patterned day (only Reception children) Could your child please wear clothing with a pattern on ready to introduce the concept of patterns. It can be any pattern at all, and as simple as a patterned pair of socks.
Next term, our learning will be based around the topic ‘Fairy Tales’ The first week back, we will be going into the woods to have the story ‘Red Riding Hood’ read whilst sitting in the outdoor classroom - I hope we don’t see any wolves!!
Here is a link to the story if you wish to shar it with your child...
The children created their own tally chart by counting the different types of vehicles that passed by the school gates.
What a busy day we have had in Reception!
Thank you for sending in so many wonderful vehicles, the children have had so much fun playing on them.
Next week (16.10.17) we are going to be reading ‘Funnybones’
Could you please share this story with your child, to help prepare them for the learning that will follow.
Can your child sing the Caterpillar Song for you?
(sung to the tune of 'she'll be coming round the mountain')
' There's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wriggle wriggle.
There's a tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wriggle wriggle.
There's a tiny caterpillar, tiny caterpillar, tiny caterpillar on a leaf, wriggle wriggle'
'He will eat the leaf around him til he's full.....'
'A cocoon is what he's spinning for a home....'
'He will be a butterfly and fly away...'
This term we are thinking about Growing. We will be reading Jack and the Beanstalk, and sending home a bean for the children to grow their own beanstalk.
For their homework we would like the children to look after their beanstalk, and draw or write about any changes that happen to their bean. They can tell us how often they water it and where they have put the plant pot so that it gets lots of sunshine.
Our new theme is 'Once upon a time' We will be learning about different traditional tales.
Homework - week beginning 27th February
Can you draw a picture about your favourite book, it could be a character from the book or a picture of your favourite scene. It would also be great to see some writing telling us about your pictures. Please return your homework by Friday 17th March.
