Autumn 1 2018

We have been very busy settling into Reception by exploring the different areas in our classroom, learning the routines of the school day and getting to know our new teachers. We are really looking forward to learning about ourselves and each other this half term!

Autumn 2 2018

We collected lots of different Autumn objects which we really enjoyed looking closely at with magnifying glasses. We talked about the different colours we could see, how things felt and the different sizes of the objects.

We have been working really hard to learn the letter names and sounds of these 6 letters: S A T P I N. We have been very busy trying to form these letters and recognise these letters and sounds in words. We are also developing our computer skills, speaking and listening skills and continuing to explore the different areas in our classroom.

This half term we have a cricket coach in school to help us learn some new skills in PE including throwing, batting, running and how to play a game of cricket. We are very excited about this!

Spring 1 2019

This half term we are very lucky to have a football coach in school to help us with our football skills. This will be lots of fun!

We are continuing to practise our letter formation and we are learning more letters and sounds which is helping us to get much better at reading! We are also learning to read and write tricky words!

In the Maths area we are working out missing numbers and thinking about 1 more and 1 less than a number as well as practicing our number formation.
