Welcome to class RB
To all our parents and carers. Thank you all so much for our lovely gifts and best wishes, we wish you all a very happy holiday.
From all the staff in Reception.
In phonics we are revisiting what we have learnt so far.
We are also working on learning to read and write tricky words. Please look at the phonics section at the bottom of our class page to see the words and the new word cards attached to our reading record books.
Maths - We have been working on learning our number bonds. This is something you could work on with your child at home. A quick game is to use a pack of cards, remove the picture cards, show a card to your child and ask your child what number goes with it to make 10. Have fun!
We enjoyed the story of 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' and learnt lots by watching our caterpillars grow and change in to butterflies. We also enjoyed watching our tadpoles grow and were very excited when we had a little frog. We are now looking at other mini beasts and finding out lots of interesting facts. We have been playing lots of 'What am I?' games using our mini beast facts.
The children have been working superbly in phonics.
Many of the children are able to blend familiar sounds together to help with their reading and writing. They are extending their phonic knowledge and becoming confident to write simple sentences independently. They are now writing at every opportunity, for example; stories, information facts and labels. The links below will give more information on phonics and activities to help your child at home.
In maths we are working on addition and subtraction by counting on and back. We are also learning our number bonds to 10. We are finding lots of ways to develop confidence working with numbers to 20. We are also doing lots of work on practical aspects of maths working on measuring length and weight and becoming familiar with the associated language, for example, heaviest, lightest, longest, shortest etc. We are doing lots of shopping and working on time, problem solving, talking about sharing and counting in 2's, 5's and 10's. We are very busy!
Please remember to keep working on sounds and reading at home with your child and remember to sign your child's reading record book when they read at home. There are also sounds to work on in the middle of the reading record books. I will be giving the children extra word games during the term for them to play with you to reinforce their learning. Parental support makes such a huge difference to the children's progress so all the extra help you can give them is very beneficial
in helping them progress.
Thank you, Mrs Bowyer
