We have had a lovely first week back in Reception. We have enjoyed sharing our half term news with our friends and drawing and writing about it in Literacy.
In Phonics we have started learning sounds; ‘s’, ‘t’, ‘a’ and ‘p’. We practised saying and hearing the sounds and learnt how to form them correctly. Please ask your child if they can show you! We are having a phonics and shared reading workshop on Thursday 9th November where you can come and find out more about how we teach reading and phonics.
In Literacy we read the story; ‘Splishy-Sploshy’. Ask your child if they can retell the story to you. The children worked hard to recognise the sight words; the, she, on and they.
In Maths we have been learning about 3D solid shapes. We looked at; cubes, cuboids, spheres and cylinders. We explored the shapes and their properties and then used the 3D shapes to build a play-house for the meanies!
In Art the children enjoyed painting their Diva lamps for Diwali creating beautiful patterns!
