As reception have worked hard all term, we decided to have a special treat. We watched the film boss baby and had popcorn! The baby was very funny as there was lots of laughing.
We have had a busy last week. We started off with sports day and then bad our throughly thrilling event the next morning.
We have continued to learn to read in phonics. You have all made super progress this term. WELL DONE PENGUINS! (All the reading you do at home is hugely impacting on your progress. Keep up the good work.) We are also improving with our handwriting in kinetic letters. In maths we have continued to explore the concepts of halving and doubling numbers through our continuous provision.

WRITING HOLIDAY CHALLENGE: can you write sentences about what you are up to during the holidays. (Upload writing onto ILD)
MATHS HOLIDAY CHALLENGE: can you double numbers or find half of a number. (Upload onto ILD)
THEME: we wrapped up our growing theme by evaluating how are beans are.We reflected on how we looked after them and came up with tips to help them continue to grow. I would love to hear about your beans during the holidays. Maybe you could write about them and upload onto ILD.
I look forward to our last term together Penguins. We will be finding out all about dinosaurs! CAN’T WAIT!
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.
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’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 LEARNG CHALLENGE: discuss with an adult how you have changed since you were a baby.
