Welcome to Reception Class

Our topic this term is the Naughty Bus and our children are learning cross-curricular through this story.  We have looked at cuboids and cones and are currently measuring height using cubes and blocks.  The children have been recreating a London scene from the book using construction bricks and role playing the story.  Next we will be looking at ordinal numbers and ordering number in place value.  We have looked at manners, saying please and thank you as well as thinking about what makes a good friend as part of this term's Christian Value, and linking these qualities to last week's anti-bullying focus.  In creative arts our children have made kites and created lollipops on sticks to cross link with their phonics learning of initial graphemes.

Today, we have had a visit from the Dogs' Trust when we learnt about how to look after a pet dog responsibly.

Please try to listen to your child read as often as possible to give them confidence and help them share with you their reading journey.  Please could you also ensure that your child has a drink bottle in school every day and that they have a full PE kit to be kept in school.
