Week beginning 25th September
The children compiled a Class Charter last week outlining the rules and expectations of both teachers and pupils in our classes.
This week we will be writing party invitations – please continue to practise their name with your child at home, they need to be able to write their name in lower case letters independently.
In Maths we will continuing to practise writing numbers correctly, ordering them and also counting.
The children are practising using the keyboards to type their names and also the camera function to take photos of each other for a Welsh activity, and to record Forest School activities.
By the end of this week, we will have covered all the initial sounds in the alphabet, and will be assessing the children to see what they are able to recall, in order to group them for future phonics sessions. We will be sending the remaining sounds home this week for reinforcement.
Week beginning 18th September
The children coped well with their first full week of school last week.
This week the children will be continuing to do activities linked to ‘Birthdays’ as part of our Celebrations topic.
They will be making collage birthday cakes, writing birthday cards, counting candles on cakes and hearing stories about birthdays.
In Maths this week we will be continuing working on counting, recognising, writing and ordering numbers to 10 (and beyond for some). In Reception there is more of a focus on recording numbers and any practise the children can do at home is beneficial.
Our outdoor forest schools and general activities will be starting this week, so please send in wellies for your child if you have not already done so. No child will be left out of an activity if they do not have wellies, but they may get muddy shoes.
Week beginning 11th September
We are very pleased at the way the children have settled and we are starting lots of new routines this week.
In Maths we are learning how to read, write,count and order numbers to 10 (or higher for some). They will also be learning about shapes, their names and properties.
In Read Write Inc we will be learning the sounds c,k,u,b. Look out for the phonics sheets early next week.
We are focusing on writing names and the children need to be able to do this in lower case letters (not capitals except for the first letter) independently as soon as possible. Please practise at home regularly.
PE will be on Thursday with Mrs Evans-please send your child dressed for PE. PE is in the school hall so they will be barefoot.
Week beginning 4th September
Welcome to Reception 2017-2018! WE are looking forward to getting to know the children over the next few weeks. Please let us know if your child has any concerns about their transition to full time school and we will help them as much as we can.
Please could all children have a water bottle and a pot of fruit each day. If they are bringing a packed lunch they will need an additional drink to take to the lunch hall.
For Reception parents – there are now Read Write Inc videos aimed at parents on You Tube. Here is the link
