Please can you ask your children not to play with the equipment before and after the school day.
Please can you bring your reading books into school each day.
Please can you check the name in your child’s jumper as we think some jumper swapping has occurred.
On Monday we had a very exciting Science Day where the children did a range of experiments. The children investigated reversible and irreversible changes including mixing paint, adding water to clay, cooking and creating shiny pennies.
This week we have also been learning about the story of the “Enormous Turnip”. We have been learning the story with actions, retelling this with our friends and making videos of the story using the classroom iPads.
In phonics we have continued with Phase 3 sounds and tricky words. This week we have focused on the tricky words “they”, “her” and “all”.
In maths we have continued to explore the different ways to make 3, 4 and 5, using the Numberblocks to support our thinking and learning.
Next week we are developing our knowledge of the story “The Enormous Turnip”. We will be thinking about the different adjectives we could use to describe the characters in the story. We will also be making our own books to retell the story using words and pictures. In phonics we will be finishing Phase 3 with a revision week of the sounds and tricky words we are finding challenging.
Thank you for reading the “Our Learning” section of the blog. We have come to the end of the Prime and Specific areas of learning. Please do let your class teacher know if there is anything you would like us to give more detail about in this section of the blog.
We are finding some tricky words challenging, in particular “her” and “he”, “they” and “the”. At story time why not try spotting these different tricky words. Please carry on with reading books and Bug Club.
Thank you for another lovely week in Reception. We look forward to more exciting learning next week!
