Another busy week for Reception

Tuesday 29th September | No comments yet

This week has got off to a very busy start!

RH went to visit our farm yesterday and RF went today. Miss Howells and the Year 5 children had some lovely activities planned for us. Each class divided into groups and rotated around three activities. The children fed the chickens with Brian, picked apples to eat and weeded the vegetable beds. Please ask your child about this exciting afternoon. Look out for some photos later in the week!

This week we have started our phonic sessions. We are beginning with the sounds s, a and t. These sounds will be new to many children but also act as a refresher for some. The children receive a sticker with each sound on and a red sound button. If you press the button they will say the sound for you.

In Literacy the children will be listening to the story “The Scarecrow who didn’t scare”. We will be talking about why farmers need scarecrows and relating this to the harvest.

In Numeracy we will be practising reciting numbers to 20, ordering numbered scarecrows and finding missing numbers.

This week is our first week of the children working in both classrooms. The children swap rooms in the afternoons this week and in the mornings next week but you still drop off and collect the children from their normal room.

Have a good week from the Reception team.
