Every day we have:
Phonics - this is where we learn our new sounds.
Maths - we have looked at 3D shapes, estimated, counted up to 10 and compared length and height.
Writing - each week we take part in a paper write and a creative write. We apply our knowledge of sounds when we write and practise our letter formation.
Story Study/Guided Reading - every week we focus on a book. We have read and taken part in lots of fun activities based on these stories; Goldilocks & The Three Bears, Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See, The Gruffalo, We're Going On a Bear Hunt and Handa's Surprise.
Topic - Our current topic is Christmas.
This year we will be learning about certain topics such as
Autumn 1 - All about ourselves
Autumn 2 - Autumn and festivals (Diwali, fireworks night and Christmas time)
Spring 1 - Winter (The Artic, cold weather and melting and freezing) and Chinese New Year.
Spring 2 - Growing (plants, animals and people)
Summer 1 - Minibeasts
Summer 2 - People Who Help Us
Every Wednesday we visit the wooded area at the back of our reception garden. This gives children the opportunity to explore the natural environment, investigate plants and minibeasts and get muddy!
We have PE on a Monday morning so please ensure your child has their PE kit at school for that day! Children must have their full P.E kits in school - yellow t-shirt, blue shorts/black jogging bottoms and black plimsolls. Please make sure you label your child's clothing with their name!
Getting changed can be quite busy with some of the children managing to lose trousers or jumpers to the other side of the classroom...please can you label all of your child's clothes before you send them in. This makes it much easier to find missing pieces of clothes.
