Happy to be me!

A very warm welcome to the Reception class blog, particularly if you are new to St. Dominic Primary School. We have had a busy start to the academic year with the class learning the rules and routines of school and getting to know each other. The children have made a great start and have been coming into the classroom happy and confidently. You should be very proud of them.

This half term our topic is 'Happy to be Me'. We are learning all about ourselves. We have been thinking about our families and what makes us special and unique.

Our first RE topic is Myself. We have been thinking about our names and our friend’s names.  We have been busy writing our names and decorating them. We know that God knows us all and knows our names and loves every one of us.

In Maths, we have been practising counting to 20, we have counted each other and we have been having a go at recognising numerals to ten.

The children have settled into routine really well and have done particularly well at lunchtime, carrying their trays all by themselves.

We have been blessed with beautiful weather so far and so we have spent lots of the time learning outdoors. Here are some of the things we have been doing.

and indoors

A reminder:
Please ensure your child has a named pair of wellies in school.

Please label EVERYTHING with your child’s name! We spend a lot of time teaching the children to be responsible for their belongings, but things do go astray and it’s so much easier to reunite lost items with their owner if they are labelled. If you use a pen to label, please keep a check as names often end up washing out and you may need to re-label.  Thank you!

Have a lovely weekend,

The Reception team.
