Half Term 3

We would like to say a big welcome back to all the children after the Christmas break. We hope you enjoyed your holidays.

A reminder that snack money is once again due and is £3.50 for the half term.

This half term we are focusing on Traditional Tales. For the first 2 weeks we have been looking at Little Red Riding Hood. We have been looking closely at the story, characters and the setting. As well as this we have also learnt actions for the story and adapted it to make a unique version of the story. Here is some of the fantastic work some of the children have produced.

Our next story will be the Gingerbread Man. We cannot wait to see all the children’s work.

During the last couple of weeks we have also been focusing on addition in Maths. We have been looking at using counters and numicon to create and solve addition problems. We will be continuing this for another week and then moving on to subtraction. Here is some of the amazing work some of the children have produced.

We have had an exciting start to the half term. We have been looking at what we celebrate.

In Reception we has an amazing bonfire and firework display. During these weeks we learned about how to keep safe on bonfire night and used lots of adjectives to describe the fireworks.

In Reception we celebrated BBC’s Children in Need. Thank you for all of your donations! We had fun decorating Pudsey Bear biscuits and dressing up as super heroes.

 

This week is Busy Bear’s birthday! He is 5. We are making cards for him and preparing banners and decorations for his party on Friday. Let’s hope he doesn’t eat too much cake!

Thank you to all the parents and carers who have taken part in our outdoor workshops this week. The children have enjoyed showing you some of our fantastic outdoor activities.

 

Half Term 1.

Dear Parent/ Carer,

This half term we have been very busy in Reception. The children have been talking all about their family and what they do at home. Our text of the term is Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson. We have been learning about the story and the characters. Some children haveImage result for monkey puzzle even drawn and labelled their body parts. Which character is your favourite? We have used our prediction skills to imagine what might happen next and we are even having a going at joining in with and retelling the story.

Next week we will be looking more closely at the season Autumn. We will be discussing the changes that happen in Autumn and the weather patterns. In class we are developing an Autumn display and we would love for your child to bring Autumn objects for display into school. E.g. colourful leaves, conkers, acorns etc.

During Next week it is also our family afternoons. This is a lovely opportunity for you to see the lovely work we have done this half term and for you to play and learn with your child in the school environment.
