Welcome to Reception’s class page! 

September 2018

We have had a great start to the year, the children have settled well and are beginning to grow in confidence.

Our class pet Saturn the snake will join us on Monday (10.9.18). This will provide an opportunity for the children to develop their descriptive language, empathy skills and build their confidence as well as provide opportunities for writing.

This month we will continue to explore our new classroom and become independent in selecting resources and using our imaginations to create art, build models and make up role play games.  We will also continue to go on little walks up the woods to become familiar with the area before we start forest school in a few weeks.

In maths we are exploring number and will come up with some counting rules to help us count accurately. We will continue to explore shape and pattern in the provision. We are working on Phase 1 phonics to ensure we are secure in this before moving on to Phase 2. Our love of stories and understanding of the concepts of print are developing through sharing books together.

In our R.E topic ‘Myself’, we will be learning about how God loves us and how he gave us a special name.

 

Autumn: Second half-term

The children are making great progress in the prime areas: communication and language; personal social and emotional development; and physical development. This progress is particularly evident in our Nativity Play rehearsals. We are looking forward to seeing you at the performance!

In Maths we have been starting to explore 2D and 3D shapes and are beginning to use mathematical language to describe them. As well as continuing to explore one number each week.

 

We are now making good progress in our mark making and some of us are moving on to forming letter shapes and attempting to write sight words. Please see below the stages of emergent writing:Writing progression

We are now well into our new R.E topic ‘Welcome’ and have enjoyed learning about Baptism and how this is when we were welcomed into the church. 

This term we have visited Amberwood Care Home and sang Christmas songs to the older generation. We loved being there and the residents were thrilled to hear our songs.
