Reception had a great day despite the weather! We helped to feed the animals, listened to the Nativity story and met Father Christmas.
Thank you to all our helpers who helped to make the day special. Here are some photographs of our day, I apologise for the amount but it was hard to choose what to include.
Reception would like to say a big thank you to all the parents who provided cardboard to help us make the Gingerbread house in our class. The children have had great fun decorating and playing in it.
Over the last two weeks the reception children have been working really hard and have learnt so much. We have been looking at different faiths and how they celebrate. We found out about a Hindu festival and a Jewish festival. We made diva lamps for Diwali and Hanukkiah candle holders. We found out about Guy Fawkes and why we have fireworks and also why we have Remembrance Day and poppies. We made a lovely poppy display to help us remember. This week we have been looking at road safety and thinking about how we can help others. We had a sponsored bike ride and cake sale to raise money for Brake. Here are some photographs of our activities.
This week’s phonemes are i,n,m.d We will practise these daily on Monday to Thursday and consolidate on Friday.
In our RE sessions this week we will be looking at the talents that God gave us. Please could you send in a photograph of your child doing something they are good at. This might be riding a bike, baking, dancing, football, colouring etc.
Below are a few photographs of our first week at school.
Thank you for your support.
We would like to say well done to all the children in Reception who managed their first full day with a smile on their faces. They coped well in the dinning hall and on the playground at lunchtime.
Today we did out first phoneme ‘S’. The challenge for them is to find something at home beginning with that phoneme (the sound the letter makes). Please help them to do this for the first few times and then hopefully they will be able to complete this task on their own.
Tomorrow is our first PE lesson. We will encourage the children to get themselves dressed and undressed but will help with buttons.
Please can you compete the data forms in order that we can post some photographs of the things the children have been doing
