Reception Newsletter – Autumn Term 2 (6.11.18)
Well, we have completed our first half term of Reception and what a lovely half term we have had! All of the children have settled so beautifully and are having so much fun and are learning so many new things. We are really impressed with all of them.
Our school topic this half term is ‘Celebrate good times, come on!’ so we have started to talk about different celebrations and why and how people celebrate them. So far this half term we have talked and learnt about Halloween, Bonfire Night and Diwali. Soon we will be moving on to Christmas! In fact, we have already started singing the songs as practise for our Christmas performance. Look out for the date below.
Phonics – We have now learnt a lot of the sounds: s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b and f. Look at the list of sounds that you can now say and practise using these sounds at home in your reading and writing.
Maths – We have been thinking a lot about numbers, counting objects and recognising numbers for this first half term. Now we are moving on to shapes. Can you find some numbers and shapes in your homes and take pictures of them for tapestry?
Literacy – We have been focusing upon ‘Owl Babies’ for the first half term and have taken part in many activities surrounding the events in the book. This half term our story is ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’. Perhaps you could go on a bear hunt as a family? Can you remember the repeated refrains?
Music – We performed at the Harvest festival and did such an amazing job. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. We are now be starting to think about learning our Christmas songs ready for our Christmas production which we are such we will have fun with as well!
Stay and plays – We have now had two successful stay and plays. The children get so much out of them so thank you very much for attending.
