Welcome to Reception! 

On this page we will let you know what your child is learning about in school and give you ideas for ways to help at home. We continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and if you want to know more about how and what your child will be learning click on this link: Parents guide to the EYFS

This week we will be ....

sharing the story of Little Red Riding Hood. We'll be doing writing, role play, making puppets and talking about stranger danger and what to do if you get lost. You could share the story here: Little Red Riding Hood

sorting words with Obb and Bob! The children will have to read the words and sort them into real or nonsense words. Play the online game here : Obb and Bob game

playing maths games helping us to work out 1 more and 1 less. How about testing each other on your journey to school each day!!

making giant bubbles. Last week the children investigated which objects they could use to blow bubbles and this week we are tesing their skill and patience in creating giant ones. We encourage a growth mindset for all our children supporting them in not giving up when things are tricky but having another try or trying a new method.

making music on our sound wall. We have tied pots and pans to our fence ready for the children to explore the different sounds and make up their own rhythms and dances. This year group love music and last week were learning world dances such as Punjabi dancing and the Russian Polka. Fancy having a try? Find it here: The Russian Polka

Every week in class all children take part in guided reading sessions (in small groups) with their teachers where we focus on the skills they need to learn next to improve their reading. We would like to say a big thankyou to all the families who help their children practice their reading book at home. Together we are helping so many of our children to become great readers who really love stories. 

Don't forget its a four day week this week (finish on thursday) so we hope you enjoy our activities and let us know if you would like us to post some activities to do over the half term.

Have a great week from the Reception team smiley
