Week beginning Monday 25th September 2017

Date: 3rd Oct 2017 @ 2:23pm

This week in Reception we have continued to focus on our homes and the different rooms that make up a house. The children used the dolls house to place the furniture into the correct rooms. The children enjoyed the activity and enjoyed talking about the different rooms in their homes, especially their bedrooms. We have also talked about sharing and what makes a good friend.

In Literacy, the children have been learning that stories have a beginning, middle and end. We used pictures from the story 'This is our house' and ordered them from beginning to end. The children had a go at writing the initial sounds to label the pictures.

In Maths, the children have been recognising numerals to 10 and lining objects up in a straight line and using their pointing counting fingers to touch as they count each object.

Time has flown - the children have been in school for four weeks now and have settled wonderfully. They have made new friends, learnt our routines and expectations and shown us just how clever they are. We have worked with each child individually to asses their skills and have introduced everyone to our reading scheme. From next week each child will have a set day where they are heard read and their books changed. We will also send home a sound mat with the sounds they are learning in school for you to practice with your child.

We are holding a phonics information night on Tuesday 10th October at 6pm designed to help you to support your child's phonics and reading skills. Feedback from previous years has shown that parents have found this session very valuable.
