PE will be on a Monday morning, please ensure your child has their PE bag in school at all times, we will send these home at half term for a wash.  

Reading Challenge

Children in Reception are expected to read at home at least 5 times per week.  For each time they read and it is recorded in their school planner (signed by an adult), they receive a stamp.  When they complete the 5 reading sessions per week, they gain a sticker.  If they receive 12 stickers by the end of the Autumn term (one for each week at school with an allowance of two weeks where the full reading quota may not have been met), they will be included in the Reading Treat.  This is where the children choose their activity for an afternoon at the end of the term and also receive a certificate.

Weekly Update

NOTICE FOR THE W/C 19.11.2018: Thank you to all of those that have brought in pictures! As part of our home corner display could the children please bring any photos of their home also their favourite room. Thank you.

 This week the children have been incredibly busy learning about Children In Need, learning about 2D shapes, carrying out experiments as well practising for the Christmas play!

 During continuous provision this week the children have been matching numbers to quantity with the counting bears, decorating Pudsy with various materials, inspecting the dinosaur eggs and caring for the animals at the vets.

This week the children have also carried out an experiment! The children had two iced eggs and made predictions regarding which egg they think would melt the quickest. We also discussed how we make the test as fair as possible – the children thought of fantastic ideas on how to make it a fair test. 

Each and every week we are wowed by the children’s developing ability to apply their phonics! We love how much determination the class shows and how eager they are to learn the sounds – great job Reception!

A letter will be going home soon in regards to which part each child has in the Christmas play. We have been learning ‘ The Happiest Little Snowman’, ‘Oh What a Special Night’, ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’, ‘Jingle Bells’, Santa Claus Rock’, ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ and Whoopsy Daisy Angel’. These songs can be found on Youtube if you want to practice at home.

This week the children have been talking about anti-bullying; the children looked amazing in their odd socks on Monday!
