Reception Letter

Dear Parents

What a busy week we have had. We have been learning lots of interesting facts about penguins and we have created some 3d papier-mâché penguins…. Wow!  We have also created lists of what we wear in winter and summer.

This week Miss Trainor has started working in Reception. She is a teaching student and will be working in Reception for the next nine weeks. She has settled in well and we are all looking forward to working alongside her.

Next week will be doing the following:

Literacy – We will be introducing our new Narrative Immersion book – Penguin Small – We will be exploring the theme of emotions. We will be talking about the following:

  • What are emotions?
  • What makes you sad?
  • How are you feeling?
  • When do you feel sad and why?

We will also be receiving something special through the post. What is it going to be? You will have to wait and seeJ  

Letters and Sounds – We will be learning the sounds y, z, zz and qu – we will be blending the sounds together to make simple words and practicing the correct letter formation. We will be learning to read the Tricky words ‘he’ and ‘she’ and reading captions with the words (and he, she, no, go) in them.

Mathematics – We will be focusing on number recognition and ordering numbers 11 – 20 and doing some problem solving with penguins and polar bears.  

Thank you to all parents who attended our Reading Workshops this week.
