This week we began our phonics program ‘Letters and Sounds’; we have had lots of fun learning the letter sounds and phrases in class. Thank you for supporting your child with their daily phonics activity; it really helps to reinforce the new learning and makes an incredible difference to their reading and writing over the long term.
Although we have had bad weather this week, Reception have still continued to learn in the outside area. They had lots of fun using their leaning power to get rid of the enormous puddle right outside the classroom. The children set their own challenge of using the syringes to transport the water to the large jars. This proved to be a very popular activity. Which learning powers do you think the children used to achieve their task? If you are not sure, ask one of the Reception class and they will tell you!
In RE this week, Reception had lots of fun reinforcing their understanding of the story of creation through a whole class role play and dance!
Next week, we are looking forward to joining the rest of the school in focussing on the story book ‘Joan Procter, Dragon Doctor: The Woman Who Loved Reptiles’. Children, why not get a head start and find out what you can about reptiles?
Have a wonderful weekend,
Mrs Theo and Mrs Gymer
