Reception 

Letter to Parents

15th October 2021

Dear Parents/Carers,

What a busy week we have had this week. We visited ‘Storyworld’  to meet a character from the book ‘Tyrannosaurus Drip. He had a problem that we helped to solve. Ask your child what the problem was and see if they can tell you the story so far.  This week we have also been trying to reinforce the numbers 1 -7, understanding their value and how the number shapes are formed. Please check Dojo for the rhymes and then you can share them at home and practise writing the number shapes. 

EYFS Curriculum - Next week we will be doing the following:

Literacy - We will be visiting ‘Storyworld’ again to see what the next problem is in the story. I wonder how we will be able to help?  

Letters and SoundsWe will be reinforcing the initial sounds we have learned to date  (s, a , t, p, i,  n, m, d) We will be putting them into words and captions and will be looking at the formation of each sound. 

MathematicsWe will be  reinforcing the  formation of numbers 1 to 7 and I will be carrying out some assessments to see what progress they have made in their first half term in school.
