THROUGHLY THRILLING TUESDAY

A big thank you to all the mums, dads, nans and younger siblings that came to reception this morning. (The children were super happy!)

 To get us excited for our next topic, we made our own dinosaurs using 2D shapes. The children then named their dinosaurs too. They looked great. Good job everyone! They will be up on display in the. Lads room next term.

We are definitely looking forward to next term. 

SPORTS DAY

We had a great afternoon. The weather was just perfect for sports day. The children mixed up with children from years 1 and 2 and took part in different activities; sack race, egg and spoon race, relay race, space hoppers, obstacle course, welly throwing, running race and also enjoyed a drink and biscuits in the 2 pavilions. We also loved watching the tots race and the mums and dads race. Thank you to everyone that came to watch today! 


We look forward to finding out the results of which house collected the most points in Friday’s assembly…

OUR LEARNING

We’ve had a wonderful busy week this week. We continue to learn sounds to help us read in phonics and practised our letter formation with Skip and Bounce. We have also been working hard to write red words.

SENTENCE STACKING: Out focus text this week was Little Red Riding Hood. The children acted out the scene where Little Red Riding Hood went to visit Granda, only it was the the big bad wolf in disguise! The children remembered their lines and took on an appropriate voice to portray their character. They were clear and loved having an audience. SUPER DRAMA WORK! 

HOME LEARNING CHALLENGE: can you write the story of Little Red Riding Hood? Remember to share your learning on ILD.


THEME: in theme we played a fun game of guess the baby photo. The children loved finding out who the baby/toddler was. They then discussed they changes in them over time

HOME LEARNG CHALLENGE: discuss with an adult how you have changed since you were a baby.


MATHS: This week we were back with Sarah and Sam who needed help to half.

HOME LEARNING CHALLENGE: can you cut things in half? (With adult supervision) can you find half of multiple objects? Share your learning on ILD.

OUR LEARNING

We’ve had a busy busy week. We continued practising our reading in phonics and writing in kinetic letters and sentence stacking. We have just finished the story Jack and the beanstalk.

THEME: we’ve been keeping an eye on our beans and discussed the changes we could see. We compared the different beans.

HOME LEARNING CHALLENGE: can you draw and write about your bean? (I would love to see it on ILD to share with the rest of the class)

MATHS: we’ve been exploring doubling numbers. 

HOME LEARNING CHALLENEGE: can you double numbers using objects or drawings?


We’ve been super busy during choosing time.


A big well done to Holly and Sami who completed their sticker charts and went up on stage.

WELL DONE PENGUINS!

HOME LEARNING

A massive well done to Ruben, Jacob, Ashton for doing some excellent learning at home. Also a great big well done to Harlo and Eshal who brought in their home learning (I am very sorry, I stuck thr work on display and didn’t take a picture. I will do it first thing tomorrow!) I will be looking to see who are the reading superstars of the week tomorrow and will be awarding stickers! 

BABY PHOTO REMINDER

In preparation for our theme lesson next week, it would be great if you could send a photo of your child when they were a baby / toddler. If you do not have a printed photo, you may upload the photo onto ILD or send via email (please speak to the class teacher.)

The photos will be used in next weeks lesson as well as a mini display in class until the end of the term. All photos will be returned. Please ensure your child’s name is written on the back.

If you would not like the photo to be blogged, please let a member of the Reception team know.

A big thank you to all those who have already sent the photos in. THEY ARE ADORABLE!! 

HOME LEARNING

A big well done to Martha, Lejla and Alyssa for sharing their home learning. I am very proud of you all. I’m hoping lots more Penguins share their home learning too! I love giving out stickers for great homework.
