Our Learning – week beginning 27th February

What are we learning about in Reception?

Week beginning: 27th February

  • Phonics –recapping on phonemes to date – practising segmenting and blending simple sentences and captions.
  • Learning the phonemes /ar/ /or/ /ur/
  • Finding out about the difference between fiction and nonfiction books.
  • Writing labels and captions about rabbits.
  • Maths groups – looking at coins, estimating, doubling and halving quantities of coins.
  • Exploring clay.

How to help at home?

  • Look at coins together. Talk about equivalents eg 5p is the same as 5 1ps.
  • Continue looking at numbers to 20 – order them, count out quantities, double them and halve them.
  • Keep reading regularly – please keep borrowing story books from the basket to share at home – it is important that the children are still being read to as well as reading themselves to continue to develop their comprehension skills and expand their vocabulary.
  • Play with playdough, salt dough or clay. What skills can you show at home eg pinching, squeezing, rolling, poking etc. How does the texture feel?
  • Read some nonfiction books – what did you find out?
