A warm welcome back to reception, we hope you had a lovely Christmas. Once again, thank you for all your well wishes, cards and gifts given to the reception staff.
We have had a week full of activities and lots of learning. Our new topic is 'Books and stories' which the children are already enjoying. We began by looking at the book 'The Jolly Postman' who delivers letters to many traditional tale characters. In literacy we wrote letters in the roles of these characters. For wxample an apology letter to the three bears from Goldilocks.
In Mathematics we looked at 'estimating', which helped our understanding of quantities. We had some very accurate estimations!
In RE we began our new topic of 'Celebrations' . If you have not done so already,
could you please bring in a photo of a family celebration for your child's learning journal,
In PE we began a new unit around the story 'We're going on a bear hunt'. The children learnt the initial actions to make a sequence to go alongside the narration of the story.
Here are some photos of what we got up to this week:
Preview of next week:
In literacy we will be looking at non-fiction books. In mathematics we will revisit shapes and their properties.
Have a lovely weekend.
