Welcome to Reception’s class page!
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.
