Welcome to Reception Class

 

 

 

This week we have been learning the story of 'The three little pigs.'

We went into the hall with our friends in year 1 and 2 and all joined in with the story and learnt the actions.

We have been using our cutting skills to make little pig puppets and we have then had lots of fun acting the story out.

We decided to make a house of sticks just like the little pigs.

This week we wrote shopping lists for the ingredients to make honey biscuits.

Each group strolled to Tesco to buy all the ingredients.
When we got back to school we followed the instructions to make our own honey biscuits!

We then had to make a packet to take our biscuits home in.
The honey biscuits smelled delicious when they were cooling!
This week in Reception we have been learning the story, ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen.

Have a look on youtube and watch,

 

"We are going on a bear hunt" performed by the author Michael Rosen.

We have loved drawing the story using chalk pastels and retelling the story as we draw.

We have written lists of food for the bear and have been concentrating on forming our letters correctly.

We received a letter from the bear!

We made baked beans for the bear and we left them for him in his bear cave. He ate them up and left us another letter!

We have been ordering items by length and using mathematical language to describe longer and shorter.

This week in Reception we have been writing shopping lists for Mrs Wishy Washy. We are focusing on hearing, saying and writing the initial sound in a word.

Keep practising your letter formation at home.

This week in Reception we are thoroughly enjoying our full days at school!

We had a great time in PE with Mr Grubb in the hall. We were learning to follow simple instructions and we enjoyed playing team games with our friends.

We continue to practise writing our names and this week we made a class book that we can’t wait to show you!

We followed instructions to make salt dough and then we rolled the salt dough in to sausages and made lots of different letters.

We are learning to continue a repeating pattern and this week we used pegs and peg boards to make two colour repeating pattern.

We had to estimate how many bites it would take to eat a whole biscuit!

We have used paper to make masks of the characters from the story of Mrs Wishy Washy.

 

We were re telling the story and drawing a story map to help us.

This week in Reception we have enjoyed getting to know our fellow classmates. We are learning the routines and rules at school and we have loved staying for lunch!

 

We have made puppets of the characters from the story of Mrs Wishy Washy. We are working hard on our cutting skills.

We have been writing lists of all the animals in the story. We have been practising our letter formation and continue to learn a new sound in phonics everyday.

We have created our own bubbly images by blowing in to bubbly mixture and making a print. It was lots of fun!

We played a game in the garden and we had to see how many balls we could throw in to the tub. We then had to count the balls.

This week we have learnt the story of, "Mrs Wishy Washy." Ask your child to tell you what happens!

 

We have been acting out the story.

We have been busy making friends and getting to know our new teachers.

We have learnt the following sounds in phonics:

 

m   a   s   d   t   i

 

Your child should be able to recognise these sounds and also begin to form them correctly. 

We have been investigating what happens to bubbles when we blow them.

We followed instructions to make chocolate muddy milkshakes! They were delicious!

We are learning to count using one to one correspondence. We all had to count the chocolate buttons. We worked out that it helped us to line them up and touch them as we count.

We played skittles with bottles of colourful water. We are learning how to tell when something is full and something is empty.
