The excitement in Reception continues... We now have chicks! The children were so excited to receive a delivery of some eggs. In no time at all, the first chick hatched and the rest soon followed! The children have loved watching them get fluffier and fluffier. We have named them and are excited to start to hold them next week. Our caterpillars are in their chrysalis stage and will hopefully be beautiful butterflies very soon.
In Phonics, we will be recapping Phase 4 adjacent consonants. We will be reading Phase 3 words that contain consonant blends to ensure the children are always being exposed to the Phase 3 digraphs. Please continue to read with your child at home, checking in with their Teddy Words each week. It is ideal to go back through the book and choose some words at random from the earlier teddies too.
In maths, the children have explored addition using first, then and now. "First there were 4 cars in the car park, then 3 more came. Now, there are 7." They have even moved on to solve some missing number problems where they knew the first and now but not the then. They worked out how to use their knowledge of composition to figure out the answer.
The children will also need to wear their PE kits to school on Fridays.
Please provide a water bottle daily.
Please pre-order lunches at home where possible.
Please ensure clothing is named.
Teddy words are changed every Monday. Reading books and Maths Challenge in on Monday and home again on Tuesday.
PE kits to be worn to school on Fridays.
We will be assessing the Teddy Words during our taught sessions throughout the day. We will no longer be recording this in their Teddy Word books. Please feel free to tick them off as you learn them at home. The children will continue to get new words every Monday.
