Welcome to our Reception Class Page
In Reception we have two classes: Our teacher in St Francis is Miss Spittle and in St Lucy is Mrs Goodyear. Our teaching assistants are Miss Campbell and Mrs Armstrong.
We have P.E on Thursdays so P.E kits should be in school if they are not already. Please could you ensure that all belongings including drinks bottles are named. Book bags should be returned daily.
Today we learnt all about Autumn. We discussed how the leaves change colour and begin to fall off the trees. We learnt about animals collecting nuts and acorns ready to hibernate in the winter. Then we went on an Autumn walk around the playground. Each of us had a checklist of things to search for! We loved collecting conkers and acorns and searching for squirrels!
We have been singing different nursery rhymes to practise our counting. We have acted them out, counted objects and practised recognising and writing our numbers. In reception we love the Numberblocks! We have been using Numberblocks to add numbers together. We have started to use a part part whole model to help us.
The school nurse visited us and taught us all about healthy eating and healthy teeth. We learnt how important it is to keep your teeth clean by brushing them twice a day. We also sorted foods into healthy and not healthy. We enjoyed choosing our favourite fruit and vegetables.
Riding the Bikes
This week we all got to have a go on the school bikes. There are scooters, tricycles and bikes. We had a great time! We enjoyed sharing the bikes and chasing Miss Campbell!
We have been enjoying our outdoor activities. We love digging for objects and sounds in the sand! Some children practised their letter formation using water in the tuff tray.
We had a go at bathing Miss Polly’s dolly; from the nursery rhyme we have been learning. We used warm, soapy water and cotton wool to take care of the baby. We also used our fine motor skills to hang the socks on our washing line using pegs.
Read, Write, Inc Phonics
This week we started phonics. We learn a new sound every day! Each day there are different fun activities to have a go at. We like using playdough and practising our letter formation.
Our first day of school
Our first day of school was very exciting! We made new friends and shared and played together. Everyone had a photo taken in the first day frame.
We were all very excited to make our own friend like ‘Forky’.
