Citizen award…

A big congratulations to Dexter and Maia who are our good citizens this week. This week they have both carried out acts that are kind and respectful to both other children in our class and our environment, which was lovely to see. Keep up the good work!

This month our citizen target is respect, we will be looking to award children who are showing respect to others and the environment.

Have a lovely weekend 🙂


Cosy day…

Next Friday (16th) we will be holding a cosy day in Reception. The children are invited to wear their pyjamas or cosy clothes to school for the day. We ask for a donation of £1 from each child as we will be watching a film and creating a ‘cinema’ on the day, some of the money will go towards popcorn and squash for our cinema and the rest will be donated to Children In Need.

In our ‘cinema’ we will be watching the film ‘The Incredibles’ (as we will be looking at superheros in the week), if you do not wish your child to watch this film (or take part the day) then please let us know. We won’t be telling the children what we will be watching and will keep it as a surprise until the day.

If you have any questions regarding wellbeing week or our cosy day then please let an adult know.

Our learning for week beginning Monday 12th November…

Next week the children will be taking part in the whole school’s ‘Wellbeing Week’; where as a school we will be thinking about respect. In class we will be carrying out adult led sessions linked to this theme including; recipes for respect, respectful superheros, circle time activities and being respectful of our environments.

How you can help at home: Talk with your child about what respect is and how they can show it to others in their lives. Any other continued activities related to phonics and maths as well as reading 5 times a week.

If you need any support with how to help your child at home please let us know.

Thank you

Our learning for week beginning Monday 5th November…

Next week we will be learning…

Phonics: The children will be continuing to learn new phonemes next week, form graphemes correctly, learn new tricky words and apply their phonic knowledge to their child initiated learning.

Maths: Next week the children will be carrying out activities based on number. They will be naming numerals up to 20 around the environment and in everyday contexts. The children will be playing games to support their mathematical knowledge and secure their number recognition to 20.

Our theme next week will be bonfire night: the children will be learning about firework safety, sharing their firework experiences, making edible sparklers (please inform us of any allergies your child may have) and making firework pictures using paint and glitter.

How you can help at home…

Phonics: Provide your child with opportunities to recognise phonemes in different contexts. Model how to form graphemes correctly and encourage them to write for a purpose; such as an invitation, book reviews and writing birthday cards.

Maths: Encourage your child to identify numerals in a range of contexts or play number games together.

Talk about bonfire night and carry out activities based on this theme.

If you need any support with how to help your child at home please don’t hesitate to ask.


Citizens award…

A huge well done to Billy and Erin who received our citizens award this week. Both children think carefully about their friends, adults and other people who are special to them. Keep up the good work!

We are very proud of all of the children and how well they have settled into Reception this half term, they have coped really well and have lots of smiles on their faces!

Have a lovely half term 🙂

Forest school…

There will be no forest school on Friday 26th October. The children are invited to wear their own clothes however due to the school disco. We will continue with forest school on a Friday afternoon after half term.

Thank you
