Another great week in Reception, the children have remembered our routines well and are working hard to follow them. This week we have continued thinking about what makes a good friend and the children are trying hard to be kind to others. We read the book It's Okay to be Different and talked about similarities and differences between ourselves and others.

 In Phonics, we have continued learning the letter sounds, and worked on learning i, n, m and d. We working hard on hearing the sound that words begin with as well as starting trying to blend words. In Maths, we visited Shapebot in Maths Land and have been doing lots of different tasks with shapes!


In Well Done assembly were Logan and Jacob for doing well hearing the initial sounds in words and for orally blending CVC words e.g. p-i-n = pin. Iyla was our Always Person.

Welcome to Reception everybody! We have had a great first week and all the children are settling in really well. They are getting used to the routines and  are really getting stuck into their learning. I have enjoyed starting to get to know the children better and I am looking forward to seeing them progress as the year goes one.

This week we have been talking about what makes a good friend and have also been talking about the school rules and routines. We have enjoyed reading some stories about starting school as well. In Phonics, we have begun learning the letter sounds, starting with s, a, t and p. The children are doing really well with these! We are also working hard on hearing the sound that words begin with. In Maths, we visited Counting Callum in Maths Land and have been practising counting carefully!


On Friday we had Well Done assembly to share any Busy Books that the children did over the holidays. I have really enjoyed looking through the ones we got back and the children were able to share them with their friends. Thank you to everyone who brought one in.


Hope the children have a well deserved rest this weekend!
