Autumn 1 2019
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 2019
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, cutting skills and continuing to explore the different areas in our classroom.
This half term we have a tennis coach and a cricket coach in school to help us learn some new skills in PE including throwing, batting, running, hitting and catching.
We have started our "Huff and Puff" sessions outside where we do lots of exercise and we have been thinking about our throwing and catching skills, balancing and moving about in different ways.
Spring 1 2020
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 and writing. 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 by writing our numbers onto squared pieces of paper and boards.
We have introduced Ipads this half term and we are using them to help us practise our number knowledge and letter formation.
Spring 2 2020
We had a fantastic week during Chinese New Year week and did lots of fun activities! We made Chinese dragons, decorated lanterns to decorate our classroom with, found out how Chinese New Year is celebrated and we even got to taste some yummy Chinese food after watching it be cooked in front of us!
In the "Toy Workshop" we have been looking at lots of different toys, talking about what they are made from and how they are used. We have really enjoyed using tools to help fix broken toys and to make new ones.
We are getting very clever at our writing now and we have started to write out captions, thinking carefully about our letter formation.
Things are very different for us all at the moment. School is closed and we are all staying safely at home.
Over the past few days you have all been sending in pictures of you and your work for our school website. It has been lovely to see you all and your fantastic work.
Here are our pictures, see if you can find your picture, your friends and see what busy jobs your teachers have been doing.
We hope that you are all well and we cannot wait to see everyone again soon, but until then stay safe and take care from Mrs Broatch, Mrs Durham, Mrs Richardson, Miss Powell, Mrs Sloan, and Mrs Downham
