This week we have been carrying on from our topic last week "Into the Artic". We have been looking at contrasting habitats such as the desert, aquatic and the artic; we have been discovering which animals live in these different places and comparing them to our own homes. The children sorted the different animals into the habitats they thought they lived, and they all did very well at this. We have also been looking at how we keep ourselves safe in our homes; the children came up with some fantastic ideas such as don't touch the kettle, don't put your fingers in plug sockets and make sure an adult is always with you when you are having a bath.
We are continuing with our English units based on The Three Little Pigs, Owl Babies, non-fiction homes (labelling etc) and animals who live in the polar regions. In phonics, we have been recapping phonemes learned in phase 2 and 3, this week we have moved on to ai and ee. In Maths, we have concentrated on the number 5 and finding out how many ways we can make 5; the children have got on really well with this and really enjoyed it.
Next week is assessment week, we will be doing some independent writing about dinosaurs. We have been practicing writing sentences using capital letters, using finger spaces and full stops. The children will also use their phonological knowledge to spell words in their sentence and hopefully use some keywords too ☺ We will also be assessing Maths and going over what we have learned. This is nothing to worry about, this shows us the progress your child is making in school.
Please keep practicing keywords at home if possible, we can see that this is being done as the children are starting to recognise keywords in their reading which is fantastic! Please also continue to read reading books sent home each night. Reading at home really makes a huge difference and we can see that the children are getting more confident with their reading which is fabulous! ☺
We hope you all have a lovely weekend and we will see you on Monday.

This week we have been looking at our new topic called "Into the Artic". We have been learning all about Igloos and what they are made out of, we have been comparing Igloos to our own homes and seeing what differences there are. We also ran our very own ice experiment, we put some ice cubes in a bowl and we predicted what might happen to them; the ice cubes were different sizes so we predicted which might melt the quickest and which might take the longest. We watched the ice slowly melt into water and the children loved it! Especially when they got their predictions correct! The children have loved getting to know which animals live in the Artic, they seem to particularly love polar bears and penguins. On Wednesdays, we now have a book system where children can take different books home. This will encourage children to get excited about reading and books, it will develop a broader vocabulary and hopefully these books will be enjoyed together with your child.
We are continuing with our English units based on The Three Little Pigs, Owl Babies, non-fiction homes (labelling etc) and animals who live in the polar regions. In phonics, we have been recapping phonemes learned but especially sh and ch, this week we have moved on to th and ng and next week we will be focussing on ai, ee and igh. In Maths, we have been ordering numerals 1 to 5 and ordering these amounts to match; the children have got on really well with this and are starting to become more confident with their numbers.
Next week, we will start to look at a contrasting environments such as the artic, desert and aquatic habitats. We will compare these with each other and discover what animals live in these different environments, and how they manage to survive in the cold, hot and water.
We practise our keywords daily at school, but it is so important that you reinforce this at home as it really helps the children with their reading when they can recognise more and more words on sight. It is very clear that this is being done as the children are starting to recognise keywords in their reading which is fantastic! Please also continue to read reading books sent home each night. Reading at home really makes a huge difference and hopefully the children will be back into their routines now ☺
As a side note, my apologies that RN's homework did not get sent out this afternoon. This will be put in on Monday and instead of it being due back on Wednesday, it will be due in on Thursday 20th January. My apologies again -
We hope you all have a fabulous weekend and we will see you on Monday.

It has been wonderful to welcome all our children back into school this week. It's been lovely to listen to their excitement over Christmas, and they all had lots to tell us. ☺ This week we have started our topic on buildings by looking at our own homes to begin with. We have started English units based on The Three Little Pigs, Owl Babies, non-fiction homes (labelling etc) and animals who live in the polar regions. In phonics, we have been recapping sh and ch this week before moving on to th and ng next week. In Maths, we have looked at composition of numbers to 5 which we will touch upon again in the coming weeks, with the aim of children becoming fluent in these early number bonds. Next week, we will look at ordering and counting.
We will also start to look at a contrasting environment next week - the cold, polar regions. We will compare it with our own immediate environment and also look at the animals that live there, and how they manage to survive in the cold.
Next week's key words will be they, my and mum, so please continue to practise all the key words we have looked at so far regularly at home, on the pink card flashcards we sent home. We practise daily at school, but it is so important that you reinforce this at home as it really helps the children with their reading when they can recognise more and more words on sight. Please also continue to read reading books sent home each night. Little and often really works and we would like the children to get back into good habits again now we are back into a routine after the Christmas break.
It was fantastic to enjoy our PJ day on Thursday this week and all the children took part with enthusiasm as they usually do. ☺ They enjoyed the pantomime of Beauty and the Beast and having a bit of fun at school to just celebrate our wonderful school family. Here are a few pictures of our week.
On behalf of the Reception team, we'd just like to say a huge thank you for all your very generous gifts, cards and kind words as we break up for the Christmas holidays, each and every one very much appreciated. We have had a fabulous final week in school with an equally fab Christmas party on Tuesday where we played some fun party games and danced our socks off! ☺ All the children looked super smart in all their party clothes. We have enjoyed getting to know our new classes this first term and are so proud of all our fabulous children and how far they have come already.
So, have a wonderful Christmas holiday everyone - relax, have fun, smile, and most of all, enjoy spending time together at this special time of year. We will look forward to seeing you all in January. ☺
The Reception Team
We are in full Christmas preparation mode here in Reception, especially after this week's Christmas jumper and Christmas lunch day. ☺ We have started making our Christmas cards and making calendars for the new year. We have continued to look at how Christians prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus and have had a go at making a Christingle in groups. The children have also been sharing their half termly homework with the class this week and we have been really impressed by the super homework and activities that the children have completed.
In English, we have continued to work on our writing skills and in Maths we have looked at finding one more and one less than a given number. This has proved quite a tricky concept for the children to understand, so we will be continuing to work on this in the new year.
We have also started learning our Phase 3 digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and have so far looked at qu, sh and ch. The next phonemes we will learn are th and ng, early in the new year. Please start to reinforce these phonemes on your Phase 3 sound mat that we sent home in the learning packs at the beginning of the year. It is important that children recognise these as only one sound, rather than sounding out the 'c' and the 'h' separately, for example and that they know how to spell it when they want to write a word that contains one of these digraphs.
We do have lots of tired children at school at the moment. ☺ The excitement of Christmas preparation, as well as it being the end of term has meant a few tears here and there, so lots of rest and early nights at home will certainly help the children manage the last week with a smile on their face. Nearly there now - I think everyone is ready for a break. Thank you all for your continued support. ☺
This week has been an exciting week! We have put our Christmas tree up in the classroom and some of the children helped Mrs Hesmondhalgh with the decorations which they loved!
We have also turned our reading shed into a stable and nativity scene, the children have enjoyed listening to the story of the first Christmas and hearing all about Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. The children have had the opportunity to dress up and recreate the story in their own words.
This week the children have been making their very own candy canes using beads and pipe cleaners, writing their own Christmas cards to family and friends and making mini Christmas trees using lollypop sticks.
In phonics this week we have been learning sounds y, z, zz and qu; please keep practicing these sounds at home.
All children have been reading very well this week, please keep practicing reading with your child at home, it really makes a massive difference.
With regards to reading, we are missing some reading books. If you have any at home, please send these in with your child in their reading pack. If we don't get these back it means we don't have a full set and children cannot read these books at home or in guided reading at school.
In your child's reading packs this week we have added in some more handwriting homework, this is due in on Wednesday 8th December. We have also added in some keywords that we would like you to practice reading with your child, this is to encourage sight reading and it is important that your child knows these keywords. We practice these keywords twice a day in class.
Have a fantastic weekend!
The Reception Team.
This week we have been learning all about Australia. We have looked at the flag, types of houses, the weather, whereabouts it is, Australian foods, animals, songs and art! We talked about the Aboriginees who were the first people to ever live in Australia and looked at a traditional Aboriginal dance. We have had a go at creating our own Aboriginal artwork, through paint, by chalking on the floor outside and also on the computer, working hard on our mouse control skills at the same time.
We continue to work hard on our reading and writing, so please continue to support both of these at home. The handwriting homework that came back this week was phenomenal and really blew us away, so thank you so much for supporting this at home. We are really starting to see differences in the children's writing and the independence they are gaining, which is just brilliant.
Next week we will look at the phonemes ch and sh. We will explain these as digraphs, because it's two letters that make one sound together. Please go over these phonemes as much as you can at home because they are ones that children get confused with in the early stages of learning. Our new key words will be you, all & be.
We will continue looking at whole and parts in Maths, looking at how numbers 2, 3, 4 and 5 can be split into parts, forming the early understanding of number bonds.
In the coming weeks, we will now be looking towards Christmas and doing lots of fun activities around this very special time of year. Please don't forget that handwriting homework is due in on the following Wednesday and that the half termly homework will be due in soon also.
Thank you for your continued support. Have a lovely weekend.
This week: 15th - 19th November
This week we have been learning all about Africa. We have been finding Africa on a map and comparing it to the UK. We have had some fantastic discussions with the children about what it might be like to live in Africa. We have also been looking at African instruments and hearing what different sounds they make; we have been dancing to traditional African music with the instruments and the children loved it! The children have made African necklaces in one of their activities this week and have been painting African masks which they have enjoyed. We have learnt the phonemes l, ll, ff & ss and continue to read our key words twice a day. It is important that the children start to recognise these key words now in their reading books, this is to assist with the speed of reading and allow some sight recognition. Some children are doing this already which is excellent!
This week was anti-bullying week and we have talked a lot about how we can be kind to others and the children came up with some lovely ideas on how to be kind. These included saying good morning, helping someone when they fall over, giving someone a compliment and if they see someone sad ask if they are OK.
Our assessments last week went really well. The children did so well and tried very hard and its lovely to see the progress the children are making. We will be sending home key word assessments in the coming weeks, with key words on mini flashcards so you can practise at home. These key words are extremely important, and it would be amazing if you practised these key words as much as possible with your child at home. We are continuing to be impressed with the handwriting homework coming in. Please ensure this is in on time so me and Mrs Parker can mark it and get the next homework ready for the week after. Try to encourage good pencil control (using the tripod grip) and the correct letter formation, as this really then benefits the children in school.
Today is Children in Need and wear what you want day. We will make sure we have lots of Children in Need fun at school and hopefully raise some money for an amazing charity!
Next week, we will be learning phonemes j, v, w & x. Please go through these phonemes with your children at home. We will also begin looking at the country of Australia. We will look at the different animals that reside in Australia, as well as the difference in weather and seasons to us and also the traditional Aboriginal art and dance.
Have a great weekend everyone. ☺
The Reception Team
This week we have been learning all about people who help us, and we thought of so many different people who do jobs to help us in one way or another. We were lucky enough to have a visit from the police this week; James and Ben came in to speak to us about the job they do and showed us all around their police car. We really enjoyed their visit, though the siren was a little loud! The children have enjoyed dressing up as police officers and firefighters in the continuous provision and this has led to some fantastic, imaginative role play. We have also been painting people who help us as well as doing some sorting activities and building a fire engine in the large construction.
This week we have also carried out our first assessments, to see what the children have learnt so far. We will be sending home key word assessments in the coming weeks, with key words on mini flashcards so you can practise at home. We were really impressed with the first handwriting homework this week. We will send home another sheet tonight (continuing to focus on letters in the 'c' family, ensuring they are all formed as a 'c' first so children are forming them correctly and become more secure or further pencil control activities), so please ensure it is completed in pencil and handed in no later than Wednesday next week.
Of course it has also been Rememberance Day this week and we have talked about this in school in as child friendly a way as possible. We looked at some pictures and talked about what we could see. The whole school observed a 2 minute silence on Thursday and Reception sat beautifully for the whole 2 minutes. We were very proud of them.
Next week, we will be learning phonemes l, ll, ff & ss. We will look at the key words am, an & he. Please go through these phonemes and particularly key words with your children at home. We will also begin looking at the continent of Africa, learning about African culture, dance & art. It is also Anti-Bullying week next week, with a theme of One Kind World. As part of this, it is Odd Socks day on Monday, which looks at celebrating difference, so it would be wonderful if our Reception children could come to school in vibrant odd socks and show them off at school.
Last but certainly not least, thank you for all your continued support and have a fabulous weekend. ☺
The Reception Team
We have had a fun week this week, learning all about India and also the festival of Diwali. One of our activities this week was to make a clay Diwali lamp with a pattern of colourful sequins on. We will send these home when they are dry - the children have done a wonderful job and created some beautiful lamps with care. We have learnt about the celebration of Diwali and looked at similarities to other celebrations and festivals we know. We have also had lots of fun in the mud kitchen this week, making lots of different delicious meals. On Thursday, we tried some Indian food.
We have learnt the phonemes h, b & f and continue to read our key words so far each day. It is important that the children start to recognise these key words now in their reading books, to assist the speed of reading and allow some sight recognition. Some children are already doing this which is just fantastic.
Tonight we will send home two sets of homework - the half termly homework which needs to be returned in 4 weeks and also phonics/handwriting homework which needs to be returned on Wednesday next week. This will now be given out each Friday and we will build the letter formation up slowly to allow children to gain more confidence in how to form each letter. It is so important that children form the letters in their homework correctly, even if they need support to do so. Re-learning the correct formation at a later date when children have got into the habit of forming a letter in a different way can prove more difficult. If you experience some resistence with children not wanting or refusing to do their homework, please persevere! ☺ Learning to write is tricky at first, but the more confidence the children gain and the easier they find it, the happier they are to do it and it can give them a real boost when they 'can do', especially in school. A little and often approach works best - maybe complete a line each night so it doesn't feel like such a big task all at once. Lots of praise and encouragement too.
Next week will be assessment week, where we will do a little writing piece describing fireworks and see how many phonemes and key words the children know. We will also be doing some Maths activities to assess progress so far. In the afternoons, we will be looking at people who help us and Ben the police officer will be visiting us on Monday to talk about what he does. ☺
Have a great weekend everyone, and thank you as always, for your continued support. Pictures will be posted later.
We have finally reached the end of the first half term and I think everyone is more than ready for a break. The children have done so so well in their first half term and many are tired and ready for a rest now. This week has been life skills week and we have done lots of learning which we will continue into the coming weeks and months. We have started learning how to use a knife and fork, so we will be encouraging this as much as we can at dinner time, so if you can encourage this at home too that would be great. It's never too early to learn these skills. We have also been practising zipping up our coats and using scissors correctly.
The children continue to make super steps of progress in their phonics and reading, which is wonderful. Many of you have now read some books on Rising Stars too and completed the quizzes, so thank you for such support at home. It means the children are gaining confidence in school all the time as their skills and knowledge develop. A week off can sometimes mean some children forget the phonemes they have learnt so, although the main priority in the half term break is to rest, relax and have fun, could we ask that you go over the sounds on the Phase 2 sound mat up to r and read at least twice. This will hopefully ensure children are ready to keep moving forward with their phonics after the half term break rather than having to go back over previously learnt sounds that have been forgotten.
After half term, we will be looking at India and the festival of Diwali, as well as bonfire night celebrations and safety. We will aim to cover the phonemes h, b, f & l and key words can, get & up (quite apt as we start back after half term and have to get up early again! ☺). In English, we will begin developing writing more as we complete activities based on Elmer, Percy the Park Keeper, Handa's Surprise and Hugo Monkey (this is an older Cbeebies song/poem which is lots of fun and here is the link if you'd like to have a look beforehand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kHp3lQKS6lo). In Maths, we will be continuing to develop our understanding of number, looking more at the composition and all the ways you can make 3, 4 and 5.
As always, thank you for your continued support. Have a wonderful half term break. ☺☺☺
This week we have concentrated on our health, discussing healthy food choices, trying a range of fruits (including taking on the lemon challenge), talking about how exercising is good for us and trying different ones to see what effect this had on our heart beat and breathing. We have also talked about looking after our teeth well (you should have received a small toothbrush and toothpaste which we sent home this week) and also good hygiene, including how to wash our hands properly, especially since there have been a few people off with illness this week. It is even more important than ever that we encourage good hygiene, so if you could go through good handwashing with your children at home, that would be much appreciated. It is important children remember to wet hands first, get a squirt of soap then rub hands thoroughly all over before rinsing off. We are finding that children are putting soap on first and then just rubbing their hands together under the water straight away so they aren't getting washed properly. Getting 60 children toileted and hand washed before dinner is a task in itself so it is important that the children already know how to wash their hands properly to help this along.
In Maths we have been learning a new word - subitising! ☺ See if your child can remember what it means...the children continue to work hard and develop their vocabulary in Maths and it is good to see them making those connections between numbers. In Phonics we have been learning the phonemes g, o, c, k and as we are going through the phonemes quite quickly now, it is important you go over them at home too to help embed these sounds and make it easier for the children to remember.
Next week we will be learning the sounds ck, e, u & r and key words as, at & his. It is also Life Skills week next week, so we will be practising skills of putting on (and zipping up!) our own coats, beginning to learn how to use a knife and fork and also using scissors correctly. We will be looking at celebrating difference next week in PSHE and also talking about how we can look after our mental health in a child friendly way. We will also be talking about road safety & online safety. Phew - a very busy week! ☺ Last week before a much needed half term break for everyone. Homework is due in next week - please send in books even if you have posted on Tapestry. It is also non-uniform day next Friday - wear something red in aid of Show Racism the Red Card.
Thank you for all your continued support, particularly with reading - it makes a huge difference and allows your child to make the best possible start to their school journey. I know it can seem like the blending is a slow process at first, but lots of practise and modelling of good sounding out and the children will get there. ☺ Have a wonderful weekend everybody.
We are now properly up and running with Rising Stars. If you have signed up, you should now be able to access some books, so happy reading! Don't forget you can access it via a tablet or on the computer (use Google Chrome rather than any other browsers if possible) and complete the quiz at the end to earn stars. If you haven't yet responded to your Rising Stars activation email, please do so because this is a fantastic resource to help your child progress in reading. Thank you for all your continued support at home.
The Reception Team
Some children have been bringing their water bottles to school inside their book bags. Please can we just remind parents to keep bottles out of the children's bags to avoid any spillages.
The Reception Team
This week we have continued to look at the books 'Monkey Puzzle' and 'The Gingerbread Man', aswell as 'Tiddler' and 'Grinny Granny Donkey' in English. In Maths we have explored repeating patterns, with different body parts and with different objects. The children have also all enjoyed their first 'Wear what you like' day at school and all looked fabulous! We have opened our quiet / reading corner and the children have loved being in there, sharing a book together in a quiet, comfortable environment.
Next week in phonics we will be looking at the sounds g, o , c and k and we will be continuing to revisit the key words the, I, to, no and go as well as introducing into, is & it. Please practise these sounds and words at home.
Hi everyone - we have now emailed everyone who has returned their Tapestry and Rising Stars slip to us. Please look out for an email from the reception email address for your Rising Stars registration link. Once you self-register, you will also need to confirm your account by responding to another email they will send you. For everyone already registered, we have assigned about 3 books which you should see when you log on to Rising Stars. If you are unable to access any of these books, please let us know by emailing email@example.com and we will aim to sort this out for you. For your Tapestry registration, please look out for an email from Tapestry rather than from us, and this will guide you through setting up an account. It has been wonderful to see all the entries on Tapestry already, with all the wonderful things you have been doing at home. Thank you for your continued support.
**If you haven't yet come across your email, please check in your junk mail/spam folder as the emails could have been delivered there rather than to your inbox. If, after checking, you still can't find an email, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to send further activation emails. Thank you.**
Also, please don't forget that tomorrow (Friday, 08.10.21), it the PTFA 'Wear what you like' day for a £1 donation. Please can children come in something sensible, because, although we won't be getting changed for PE, children still need to be able to be independent when going to the toilet etc.
Wow! We are now in October and the Reception children have been with us for a month already! This week we learned about our five senses; hearing, seeing, touching, tasting and smelling. Children have investigated and explored a range of objects using their different senses. In Maths we have been comparing size, height and weight and practising using words such as longer and shorter. We have begun looking at a range of different books in English, which we will be continuing to do over the next few weeks, including The Gingerbread Man and Monkey Puzzle. Today we have done P.E for the first time and all of the children tried their best to get changed in and out of their P.E kits. If there are any children who have not got a P.E kit yet then please can parents bring them in for next weeks P.E session. Thank you again to those who have signed up to Rising Stars and Tapestry. A book has been assigned on Rising Stars and it has been lovely to see photos of children's learning at home on Tapestry.
In phonics next week we will be learning the sounds i, n, m, d and we will be continuing to practise the key words I, to, no and go.
Have a lovely weekend!
Thank you to parents for returning their reply slips for setting up a Tapestry and Rising Stars account. Those parents who have provided us with their email address should have received links to set up both of these accounts, so please check your emails for these (including junk mail). Parents who have recently had siblings in Reception will already have a Tapestry account set up therefore may not need another account. If you are having any problems accessing/ setting up your accounts please let the Reception Team know.
We have had a busy week in Reception. Children have continued to get to know routines and have been settling in to their new groups. We have also started joining the Key Stage 1 children during lunch and playtimes, which means lots of children have enjoyed seeing and playing with their siblings on the playground. All children should have received their first reading book this week aswell as this half term's homework. During lessons we have been practising rhyming in English, counting in Maths and we have started learning the sounds 's' and 'a' in phonics. Also, in our topic work we have been talking about our families.
The sounds we will be learning in phonics this week are 't' and 'p' and the key words we will be practising over the next few weeks are I, to, no, go, the.
Thank you to all who were able to attend this meeting on Tuesday 14th September. If you were not able to attend, please do not worry. I will attach the powerpoint below. The main messages to come out of the meeting were:
Please see the powerpoint below for more information if you were unable to attend. We hope everyone has now received their packs and that you find them useful in supporting the learning of your child at home.
The Reception Team ☺
We are coming to the end of our very first full week in Reception! The children are settling really well into their routines now and this will continue into the coming weeks. It is also lovely to see new friendships continuing to blossom as the children find their feet and gain a little more confidence interacting with their new classmates. We have carried out our baseline assessments this week, to gauge our starting points in terms of our learning. We just class them as 'activities' and the children are unaware they are taking assessments, as they are all child-friendly and age appropriate. It was wonderful to see so many of you at the Reception Curriculum meeting on Tuesday. We hope you find the packs we provided useful in supporting your child's learning at home.
Next week, we will begin our teaching in Literacy, Mathematics, Phonics & Topic. We will begin by teaching the phonemes s & a.
You may find now that tiredness has started to kick in a little, so if you have a reluctant, teary or grumpy child on your hands, please do not worry! ☺ These first few weeks in Reception are a lot to take in and it does take it out of them, so lots of rest and early bedtimes will do wonders. Here are a few photos of our week. Have a great weekend everyone.
Today we started our 'Tots on Tyres' programme. The children had a wonderful time learning how to ride pedal bikes. As there are 60 children in Reception, not all children will get the opportunity to participate every week. The coaches managed to give all the children in class RN a turn on the bikes this week and will be offering it to class RP next week. Please see photos below.
In reception next week we will be starting baseline assessments. These are statutory assessments all schools do at the beginning of reception, designed to give teachers an understanding of the stage each child is at when they start school. These assessments are interactive and it gives teachers a chance to spend some one to one time with your child. For more information, please see the document below.
This week the children have been learning school routines such as sitting on the carpet for registration, lining up for lunch time and what we need to do at tidy up time. All children have settled really well into school life and making new friends. During our carpet times we have been discussing how to be kind to each other and how to play nicely. The children have really enjoyed their first week of school.
Note to parents: when it is home time, please can you give teachers a big wave so we can see you clearly and if possible come as close to the reception doors as possible so we know your child has been picked up safely. Thank you.
We are so proud of our fabulous new Reception starters! They have come into school so well, with super smiles and we have really enjoyed getting to know them all. Thank you for all your support with the smooth transition into the first few days of school. It has been lovely to see new friendships forming and tomorrow, when we have our final group starting (our Pre School children), we will finally have our full classes in. Here are a few pictures of our first couple of days.
