Reception Class have been very busy learning about Remembrance Day this week. The children made some beautiful poppies to wear, created poppy paintings, wreaths and medals and held a two minutes silence with the rest of the school on Wednesday, as part of the virtual Remembrance Day assembly.
On Wednesday, the children were taught Karate in the big hall. This is to be a new weekly session right up until Christmas!
Reception have a new imaginary role play area- a church! They have filled it with lots of religious artefacts made in class, including Bibles, stained glass windows and tabernacles, to name a few.
In Maths this week, the children have been learning about sorting objects into groups and have had lots of hands-on fun when doing so!
The children have now been taught all of the Phase 2 Letters and Sounds and tricky words. We will now be revising all sounds and words daily and will continue to focus on applying them in reading and writing. Please continue to practise all sounds taught whenever possible. Thank you !
This week, we also welcomed Caitlin, a student from Oaklands College. Caitlin will be working with Reception every Monday and Friday, from now until the end of the academic year. She is really looking forward to getting to know all of the children.
Have a lovely weekend,
The Reception Team
