This week in Reception

Friday 21st September | 6 comments

We have had a really busy week in Reception. The children are enjoying school and are doing really well remembering their morning routines. Please can we ask that all book bags go in the box in the classroom in RK and in the children’s trays in RH.

The children have had lots of fun this week. Some have visited the farm, many children have played outside and some have enjoyed making a fire engine and pirate ship. The children have also made lots of pirate equipment including maps, eye patches and hats.


We have been practising some of our rhyming, alliteration, sounding out and blending skills. We have made rhyming soup using 2 objects that rhyme like ‘box and fox’.


We have been counting forwards to 20 and backwards from 10 to 0. We have counted objects and identified amounts and numbers to 5. We have also looked at an amount of objects and what ‘the same’ means.


We are doing well eating our lunches and trying new foods to see if we like them. When prompted, we are remembering to say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. Please can the children have time to practise using a knife and fork and cutting their food.


We  super PE sessions this morning. The children are doing so well remembering how to find a space on their own and listening to instructions. Please can you make sure your child has their PE kit on their peg on a Friday. PE kits can stay on the children’s pegs – they don’t need to go home every Friday.

School trip – Leeds City Library

We hope that you have all received a letter regarding the trip to Leeds Library. RH are going on Monday 1st October and RK are going on Tuesday 6th October. We welcome any adult helpers. If you have not received a letter, please let us know.

Focus Child

In addition to observing the children, we also choose three children to observe in greater depth who are our ‘focus children’. When it is your child’s turn, they will get a bag with a camera and piece of paper in. The camera is to take pictures of what happens over the weekend. On the piece of paper, you have the opportunity to tell us what your child loves to do or about any special occasions that might be happening. There is also a section for any questions you may have about your child’s progress or how they’re doing in general.

    I love getting these emails and seeing what William has been doing. When I ask what he’s done he says he can’t remember. He’s also finally told me someone else’s name! He’s really enjoying school.
