Harvest Time in Reception!

Monday 29th September | 1 comment

This week in Reception we are learning all about Harvest and the Harvest Festival. The children will be reading the book ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’ and ‘The Enormous Turnip’ and thinking about which vegetables they like to eat. The children will also be mixing colours together to create observational drawings and paintings of real vegetables. We will also be practising the song ‘Big Red Combine Harvester’ for the Harvest Festival on Friday. Maybe your child can give you a rendition at home!


In literacy this week we are practising writing our names and beginning to practise forming letters. We will also be starting phonics so don’t forget to press your child’s sound button sticker when they come home!


In mathematics this week we are ordering numbers and counting objects to 10 and 20 as well as starting to practise our number formation. Don’t forget to look in your child’s communication book to see where we start our letters and numbers when writing.

Thank you to everyone who sent in photos of our scarecrows over the weekend. They looked great!

Have a great week everybody.

The Reception Team.
