Phonics Learning 

The children have made so much progress in their phonics since September. The children have learned so many sounds and lot of tricky words. On Friday, during our phonics lessons, the children worked with their phonics partner to highlight tricky words in a short story. We found the tricky words: the, into, go, to, he and she. ​


Welome back everyone! It's so lovely to see all the children so refreshed after the Christmas holiday and hear all about their holiday. To kick of the Spring term, we had our Explorer WOW Day to introduce our new topic - What's That Sound? The children went on a lovely walk, despite the cold temperatures, around the local area to use their listening ears. We heard so many sounds including dogs barking, cars driving, birds chirping, children talking, feet stomping, wind blowing, cats meowing, drills drilling and lots more! The children enjoyed completing their What's That Sound? sheet and used their phonics to write some of the words. 

 


 

Our trip the the Belgrade Theatre 


Reception Willow had a great time visiting the Belgrade Theatre to see Santa's Sparkly Surprise on Friday. We loved singing along with all the songs and helping the elves to decorate Santa's Christmas tree. At the end, we got to meet Santa! It was very exciting. 

Daisy Update - WE FOUND HER!

Daisy had gone to get us a beautiful Christmas tree for the classroom. Thankfully she is back safe and sound. Thank you for helping us find her! 


HELP - DAISY IS MISSING

Oh no! Daisy has gone missing. The children have been trying to figure out what has happened by asking 'when, why, what, where and how' questions as well as creating lots of posters so that everyone in the school can help us find her. We went on a search around the school looking for clues but we couldn't find her. We hope she is found soon - if you find her please let us know! 

Our Autumn Term Learning 

We have had such a busy Autumn Term so far which I am sure will continue right up until Christmas! We have been really focused on our learning this term and have had lots of fun completing weekly independent literacy and numeracy challenges linked to our learning. 



Diwali 

We have been working really hard learning about Diwali and the story of Rama and Sita. We have been planning a party to celebrate Diwali and Bonfire Night in our writing with our teachers and have been creating our own repeating pattern headbands to help us to celebrate. We have also painted some beautiful Rangoli patterns in our art work to decorate the classroom. At the end of our learning, we have had a class Diwali celebration in which we wore our headbands and had a dance!​

Bonfire Celebrations

Before half term, Reception were learning about People Who Help Us as part of our Cornerstones Topic - Do you want to be friends? and we talked about the emergency services and how they help us. We discussed police officers, fire officers and paramedics. To finish off this topic and related to our Bonfire Night learning, we were very lucky to be visited by a fireman. We learned lots of information about staying safe in a fire and what we can do if we see one as well as how we can ensure our houses are safe. He was very kind to allow us to try on some of his special equipment - even Miss McIntosh tried on the trousers and boots! It was lots of fun! ​

First Week of School

The children are enjoying their settling in sessions in Reception Willow and are starting to learn all about the routines in class including stopping when they hear the tambourine. This week the children have also been for a tour and visited all of the areas of school which was very exciting! We are very excited to spend all day in school next week. 

Teddy Bear Picnic 

Thank you for coming to our Teddy Bears Picnic. It was lovely to see you all there and we know the children really enjoyed it! ​

​Cornerstones - Why do squirrels hide their nuts? 

To introduce our new topic, Reception went on a Welly Walk around the school grounds. We were looking for all things 'autumn' including autumnal leaves, pine cones, sticks and acorns. ​The children enjoyed collecting things with their partners and ticking off the checklist.
