Autumn Term 1 (2023 - 2024)

Autumn 1, Week 2
What another wonderful week the children have had! First of all, I want to say how proud I am of all my children - they have been super stars with their lunches this week! They have all sat in the hall, with other classes and have enjoyed eating yummy food and socialising with their friends!
Reception started playing on the playground with the older children this week too which has been so much fun! The year 6 children are wonderful at looking out for the Reception children and are looking forward to learning who their buddies are next week!
This week the children have started maths sessions, where they have been learning how to count to 5. Reception have used cuddly toys, cubes and number lines to help them as they count.
We began phonics this week, learning the phonemes s, a, t, p. The children can now recall these sounds and make the appropriate action for each sound - well done!
The children have loved their independent learning time this week, building dens, playing with dinosaurs, playing in the sandpit and water tray, and colouring to make beautiful pictures. In PE reception began learning the rules of rugby and had such fun running around and playing with the rugby balls!
Well done again Reception, I can't wait for us to share full days together from next week!
Autumn 1, Week 1
Wow, what an amazing week Reception have had! All the children have started school with such a positive attitude and I am so proud of each one of them already!
We have had a busy week learning about school expectations, making friends and exploring our environment. The children have been playing both indoors and outside and have loved using the log trail everyday as well! We have read a new story each day and it has been added to our story corner bookshelf so that we have books that are familiar to us. We have painted our portraits as the first activity for our 'Marvellous Me!' topic and we commented on features that were similar or different to our friends. We practiced some PE skills today to show Miss Berry and Mrs Hill how clever we are at PE.
I am looking forward to another wonderful week with my little ones. Well done Reception you have been amazing!
