Hopefully the weather is going to continue to improve and we can make a full week! The Word Aware words this week are Same (from last week) Second and Narrow. To support at home ask the children to find things that are the same around the house (socks mugs etc or when walking down the road find cars the same colour) For ‘Second’ ask your child to complete simple tasks in order eg first put on your socks second put on your shoes or instruct them the order they need to eat small snacks.
This week we will be completing some secret activities for a surprise for a special person in your child’s life, we will be estimating in mathematics and writing sentences.
We hope you have all had a relaxing, enjoyble week. We are excited about the term ahead. We are going to be looking at healthy eating and have a new role play healthy eating cafe in the classroom. We will be continuing to work on recognising numbers and also investigating weight and capacity.
A quick reminder that we are dressing up for book week this week, your child can wear any costume of a character from a book and Tuesday and Wednesday are parents evenings.
The Word Aware words for this week are Heavy, Light and Same.
Reception have had a busy week working hard on thier phonics and mathematics. We have been really pleased with how much the children have retained during the phonic sessions. In mathematics we have been learning how to add and using the words of addtion: add, altogether, addition, makes, equals and total. In our dance sessions we have been using gestures to tell a story. In the week ahead we will be learning about rhyming words, splitting groups of objects equally and tapping out rythms on musical instuments.
Reception are having a sweet shop in the role play area. Please can you send in your empty chocolate and sweet tubes, tubs or boxes to help ‘stock’ the shop. Thank you.
We had a lovely visit to the pantomime yesterday, the children were really well behaved and a credit to you all.
Today we had a lovely party, with food, dancing and party games. We would like to say a big thank you for all the lovely cards and gifts we recieved, it was very kind of you all.
Have a lovely, happy and holy Christmas and we look forward to the new term ahead.
