We enjoyed talking about Winter and all the wonderful things it brings.

Our talented teachers painted our faces to celebrate Winter and the ending of our Autumn Term.

Have a look yourself!

 

Thank you for the lovely contributions to our party – it was wonderful!

We danced the afternoon away.

We have had a fantastic first term in Reception. The Reception Team would like to thank our amazing families for all their continued support. We are looking forward to all the learning that is to come in the Spring Term.

The Reception Team

Thank you to all the parents that have come to our Parents/ Carers’ Evening. We look forward to seeing the rest of you.

Please find below the learning information that we said we would share with you.

Phonics Autumn Term

These are the letters and sounds we have been learning this term:

s a t p i n m d g o c k ck u e r b f l

Please continue to go over these letter sounds to support your children in using them confidently and securely. This will enable their reading and writing. Don’t forget to use your online library at Big Cat ebooks – your username and password can be found in your child’s reading record.

Maths Autumn Term

We have been learning to count, recognise and work within numbers from 0 to 20. Below you will find some links to helpful videos and websites to support your child’s continuous learning.

Shapes are everywhere! To support your child’s ongoing learning, you can challenge them to Shape Hunt the environment – can you see a circle, square, triangle, rectangle? What shape is the bus stop sign? How many sides does the square have? Can you see another shape like it?

Finally, please remember to check the school blog every two weeks for updates.

Have a lovely weekend,

Reception Team

If you would like to practice singing our first three songs for the Nativity, please follow the links!

Scroll down for the lyrics…

A Wriggly Nativity

Wriggly nativity, wriggly nativity!

Somehow you’ve just got to move:

It’s a wriggly nativity.

Can you feel the thrill?
Can you feel the thrill?

Glory, glory, what a story!

No-one’s sitting still!

Wriggly nativity, wriggly nativity!

Somehow you’ve just got to move:

It’s a wriggly nativity.

Donkey Plodding

Ee-or!

Donkey plodding, donkey plodding

Move your weary bones.

Donkey plodding, donkey plodding

Over rocks and stones.

Or-ee-or, ee-or, ee-or,

Never ever moans

Donkey plodding all day long.

Ee-or!

Carry gentle Mary,

Carry gentle Mary,

All the way to Bethlehem.

Ee-or!

Ee-or!

Donkey plodding, donkey plodding

Move your weary bones.

Donkey plodding, donkey plodding

Over rocks and stones.

Or-ee-or, ee-or, ee-or,

Never ever moans

Donkey plodding all day long.

Ee-or!

Joseph walks beside you,

Joseph walks beside you,

All the way to Bethlehem.

Ee-or!

Today we had loads of fun on our local trip to Lucas gardens.  The weather was sunny and the children were able to find lots of beautiful leaves to bring back to school.  We will be using them in school to make lots of lovely leaf art!  Watch this space for what the children produce.

We also want to say a massive THANK YOU to the wonderful parents who came along to help.  You were amazing!

Here are some photos from our trip for you to enjoy.

This week we have been learning these sounds:

/g/o/c/k/

Here is the Little Wandle Parents area to help you practise at home with your child

 

Look out for home learning sheets in your child’s bookbag with these sounds on them.

In maths we have been learning how to make 5.

Next week we are going on a trip to Lucas gardens on Wednesday morning.  We will be going on a Leaf Hunt – like the story of the week.

If you go to a local park this weekend, why not collect lots of leaves, conkers, acorns etc to bring into school for our nature table.
