Welcome to the Reception Class blog!
Miss Nicholas - Reception Class Teacher
Whilst we aren't at school, I thought that it would be a lovely idea to share some of the exciting things that you have all been getting up to. I will share some of your photos to give you some inspiration, and also so you can see some friendly faces that you may be missing!
It makes my day when you send me photos so please keep them coming! I am missing you all and hope to see you back in school soon!
Just a little message from me (Miss Nicholas) to say how much I miss you all! You're all doing amazingly and I can't wait until we're all back in school again!
Well done to Jacob for cheering for the NHS and making a fantastic poster to encourage others to cheer for them too! He has also made a salt-dough handprint so he can remember this very special time at home. I love it, Jacob!
Esme has been making the most of Spring this week and has created a beautiful flower finger painting. She has also been learning all about chicks in preparation for Easter and has made a lovely fact file.
Ada has sent in her fantastic drawings this week. She has completed her English work and drawn a picture of a rainbow which is really relevant right now. You're doing so well, Ada!
Can you remember the beans we planted for our 'Jack and the Beanstalk' focus? Well, we planted them outside today whilst the sun was shining! We emptied a flowerbed to give us room, dug up the roots, turned the soil, and planted the beans. Fingers crossed they grow big and strong!
Angel has been practising her letter formation whilst she has been at home. Brilliant work, Angel!
All 5 chrysilis' in our class hatched into beautiful Painted Lady butterflies last week. We waited until it was sunny outside and let them free. They were a little wobbly at first but then enjoyed flying about in the breeze and sitting on the flowers. Have you spotted any butterflies yet?
It is great to see lots of children using the links on the home learning packs to practise their phonics. George is playing 'Buried Treasure' on Phonics Play, and Tommy is watching a RWI speed sounds lesson from the RWI website. Practise makes perfect - fantastic job, boys!
Henry has had a great idea to practise his counting to 10. He has put his number flashcards in order and counted out the correct amount of cars for each number - very creative, Henry! Which number has the most cars? Which number has the least cars? How do you know?
James has been using his phonics sound cards to practise his blending. Can you spot any words that he has made?
George has really impressed me with his lovely neat handwriting. He got Star of the Week recently for learning to write his name and you can clearly see why - keep up the good work, George!
Jacob has been extremely busy these past two weeks and he looks like he's been having lots of fun! He has been baking, gone on a mini-beast hunt, and has been doing some fabulous painting!
Layla-Rose has sent in some photos this week of her completing her English work in her home learning pack - what lovely writing, Layla-Rose!
I have been so pleased to see how busy Teddy has been... from going on nature walks, making forts, and completing some of his home learning pack. Well done, Teddy!
Thank you so much to Henry for sending me some lovely photos last week. Henry has been super busy completing some of the free choice activity pack ideas and has been making the most of the fabulous weather! Who else has been out in the sunshine?
In school, we spent lots of time practising our number bonds to 10. Esme has been busy showing her grown-ups these skills. What a fantastic job - keep it up, Esme!
Aimee sent me a photo of her and her sister's drawing of a story. What great teamwork! Can you tell which story it is?!
I (Miss Nicholas) have been enjoying taking my dogs for a walk every day. I have been looking for signs of Spring and came across a beautiful blossom tree! Have any of you been on your Spring scavenger hunt? What did you find?
Please keep sending me your photos and checking here for updates. I will upload new photos every week for you all to enjoy!
