Week Commencing 27.3.17

Firstly on behalf of all of the reception staff, we would like to thank you all for your amazing response and generosity on Red nose day, the children had a great time.

What an exciting week we have in the Reception this week.

The children are excited to perform their ‘Mother’s Day’ assembly after the disappointing postponement of last week and we all look forward to seeing you on Monday afternoon.

This week is also ‘Well-being’ week where we will be exploring our feelings through activities and group sessions with organisations including the Black Country women’s aid organisation.

 We will be discovering that it’s okay not to be okay and how kindness can increase our feelings of well- being on Monday.

We will remind ourselves on Tuesday that ‘we are worth it’ and feeling safe when we enter the solar dome. Why do we have rules? We know our school rules and what they mean for us and how to follow them.

Wednesday is all about having a healthy body and mind where Nursery and Reception will work together to make the Nursery garden a stimulating and relaxing place to use our senses to explore for present and future pupils.

Thursday we address healthy relationships and how we get on with others, identifying what a bully is and what they do, why they do it and strategies to help us overcome unkind words and actions.

Friday is ‘Good to me’ time and your little learners chance to celebrate all that they have achieved over the week.  Share in your child’s experiences by looking at our photos on the school website and ask them to explain what they did. Remember speaking, listening and responding is one of the most important skills your child will learn, so they need chance to practice sharing their knowledge with you and answering your questions.

Our focus in Literacy, Maths and free flow is Spring.

Literacy skills include talking about spring and writing their thoughts into sentences and key words.

In maths we are learning how to halve and share (early division) using practical challenging, but achievable activities.

Don’t forget to make your Easter/Spring Bonnet together, the parade is on Monday 3rd April at 1.15pm.

Here’s to an exciting week .

Week commencing 20.3.17

This week the reception classes, RC and RD will be having fun exploring capacity in Maths. Pretending to be Little Red Riding Hood or the wolf, they will be using a variety of containers, bottles and baskets, water, toys, sand, rice and pasta to further our use of skills and language in this area. Using language like full, empty, part full and part empty can be used in everyday activities at home to support your child’s learning, washing up or bath times are great opportunities.

In Literacy we have been continuing our work on Fairy Tales (following your suggestions about your children’s interests) by learning how to retell a story in sequence using key events. They are finding out about settings, beginnings, middles and ends. Why not ask your little learner to tell you a bed time story?

Mother's Day Assembly has been postponed until further notice due to school closure on Thursday 23rd March 2017.

The classes are also excited about wearing red for Friday’s red nose day fun.

This week we have read the story 'Dinosaurs love underpants'. This week we have been focusing on retelling the story using our own words. The children have then mapped their stories out on a story mountain. The children have had a chance to design and make their own underpants and do lots of fun dinosaur crafts.

This week the children have learnt all about fossils and have had the oppourtunity to make their own. The children have had the chance to look at a selection of fiction and non-fiction books about dinosaurs and have enjoyed learning dinosaur facts this week.

In Maths we have been focusing on subtraction, the children have been learning to practically subtract a single digit number from another singal digit number.

Introduction to Dinosaurs

9/1/17- 13/1/17

 

Our new topic this month is 'Dinosaurs', the children were very excited to find a dinosaur egg in the classroom when they arrived on Monday morning. The children made sensible predictions about what was in the egg. They built a nest and looked after the egg until it hatched. The children were very excited to see that it was a baby dinosaur. They loved seeing our dinosaur grow and and enjoyed our virtual dinosaur that visited our classroom.

This week the children have read the story 'tryranasuras drip'. The children enjoyed the rhyming aspect of the story and could make their own rhyming sentences. In Maths the children have been working really hard on counting different amounts.

 

This week we have given an events letter out to all parents that outlines any events that are coming up between now and Easter.
