This week in Reception, we will be revising the Phase 2 and 3 sounds to help build a solid foundation for Year 1. Starting next week we will begin to integrate Phase 4 sounds into our daily lessons, while still covering the Phase 2 and 3 sounds. In Maths, we have been doing addition and subtraction using ducklings! We have had lots of fun making our own number sentences and counting our ducks. In R.E, we have been learning more about our community and what it means to love each other like Jesus loved his disciples.

Reception -Summer Week 1

This week in Reception Phonics: This week, we have taught the children these phonic sounds. We will teach both ow and ear sounds to the children. Please could you practise these sounds at home:

ow (cow and bow), oi, ear (hear and bear) and air 

We started looking at the life cycle of plants this half term by reading ‘The Bean Diary’ during shared reading. We then wrote sentences about the bean’s life cycle in shared writing. We then planted our own beans and will be watching their growth. 

Maths: In Maths, we are starting to learn how to skip count in 2s and 5s. In class we are using number lines, caterpillar counting and objects to help us. 

R.E: In R.E, we started to learn more about Pentecost and how the disciples received the Holy spirit. We did lots of activities such as painting flames to represent the Holy Spirit and writing about the events of Pentecost. 

Super sentences: Harvey wrote “The seed is green.” Pedro wrote “several sentences about the bean life cycle.”
