Autumn 1

Marvellous Me!

Book of week- Hugless Douglas goes to little School

We have completed the first week of reception - the children have settled wonderfully. 

We have been working hard on getting used to all the play areas and the names of our new friends.  We have spoken a lot about our families and shared pictures of them.   In phonics we have been sounding out animal names and colours and trying to work out what Fred (our phonics friend) is saying.  In maths we have been sharing smarties, sorting them into colours and making pictures out of them - then we ate them.  We have danced and laughed and played.

To finish the week we had forest school, lots of the children said it was their favourite day of the week.  We did lots of climbing, talking about the different trees and what animals might live there.  We looked at some birds nests and then shared hot chocolate.  It was a friends birthday so we even had cake under the willow tree in the orchard.

Parents Phonics evening information.

Thank you to all those who attended the phonics evening information session.  For those who couldn't make it here is the power point we went through. 

As always, if you have any questions please just ask at the end of the day or email and we will support in any way we can.

We have had another busy week, with lots of rain!  The children have loved it - they have jumped in puddles, made lots of tea in the mud kitchen and got to know each other a lot more.  We have shared various books throughout the week, however, 'All my friends,' was the weekly focus.

In numeracy we have focused on learning about subitising and counting accurately.

In phonics we have been practising 'Fred talk' and sounding out our words.
