RECEPTION

Autumn 2

Week beginning  20th November 2017

This week we have enjoyed reading and acting out the 'Three Billy Goats Gruff!' We have also taken part in an anti-bullying work shop and had lots of discussions about how to be a good friend.  We will continue to remind this to the children every day.

Next week our fairy tale will be "Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs". We will be acting out the story using different props. If you have a version of the story please bring this in to share with the class.

The children will be writing spells and making potions outside with the sand and water.  We will continue to look at feelings by creating and naming our own dwarf characters. We will be collecting shiny objects as we will be creating our own mirrors and will be discussing what a reflection is.

In maths we will be looking at different ways of making 7 and also learning about symmetry. We will also continue to practise counting and recognising to 20.

We will also be practising our Nativity show as we now have two weeks left until the first performance!

 

We will recap on sounds learnt and will be learning the new sounds:

r, j, v, y

 

We will continue to practise the following tricky words 

 to, the, and, a, I, in, said, he, of, it, was, you, they, on she, is, at, his, but.

Notices:

 One parent has made us aware that in 'Smiggle' they are giving away free wrist bands in aid of anti- bullying week.

If you child is having a pack lunch please can this be a healthy lunch following our new school rules. Also all lunch boxes must be named. Due to nut allergies please do not bring peanut butter sandwiches.

We would just like to reiterate the importance of communication between parents and ourselves.  If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to talk to one of the team or to email your class teacher.

 

School Information:

Please note that school starts at 8:45am and finishes at 3:15. If children are not in when the register is taken they will be marked late or absent. 

You will receive invitations to join parentmail over the next few weeks, after which payments for the class fund (£13) etc. can be made online. Each child has an individual parent mail account.

PE lessons will be on a Tuesday (Robins) and Wednesdays (Owls) so please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school and that it is fully named.  All children will need black shorts and plimsoles.
