This Week's Mystery Reader was....

Calliope's Daddy with a hilarious story called 'Russell, Grunt and Snort' by Jason Chapman.  We loved the story and it made us laugh out loud with all the funny adventures!

'We're Going on a Bear Hunt!' read in Italian!

We were very lucky to have Teresa's Mummy in to read 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt!' in Italian before we had World Book Day all about the story.  It was a great surprise and very interesting to hear it read in another language.

Move More March!

 

Reception thoroughly enjoyed running around our track in the garden on a beautiful spring morning!

World Book Day

We're Going on a Bear Hunt!

 

We had a fabulous time on Thursday acting out all of the scenes from the Bear hunt. We played lots of drama games including how to listen to different voices, how to project our voice, use facial expressions and gestures. We also used props and musical instruments to support our performance.

World Book Day - Thursday 5th March

 

We're Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen

 

Please see the letter attached below

For Your Information...

We are hoping to visit Dippy the Dinosaur in Rochdale as a trip later this year (just in case you were planning to visit yourself before then).

We are Builders!

We have developed our new topic of building and construction based off child-led interests.  We read the 'Three Little Pigs' story and talked about how to make a strong and sturdy house.  We acted out the story and some of us had a go at writing it! Then we got busy designing, constructing and building houses and buildings.

This Week's Mystery Reader

We were very surprised to see Mr Walker, our Site Manager come into our classroom to read us a story!  He read 'Little Rabbit Foo Foo' by Michael Rosen, complete with props and puppets.  We really like all the different voices Mr Walker used for the different characters.

...and this week's Mystery Reader was....

Theo's Mummy!  She read 'The Go Away Bird' by Julia Donaldson.  We really enjoyed hearing about how the Go Away Bird learned his lesson and got rescued by the Come Back Bird.  We loved all the different voices Theo's Mummy used and looking at the pictures and front cover especially.

Walk to School

We have all been busy walking to school over the last few weeks and lots of us have already got our first badge.  Keep it up over the next half term!

A Winter Wonderland

We have been busy exploring winter through many different ways.  We have looked at winter artwork and recreated our own using various mediums, learned about cold weather places, Artic animals and explorers.

Mystery Reader

This week our Mystery Reader didn't have to travel very far, just from Elm Class next door! Mrs Bradley read 'Room on a Broom' by Julia Donaldson to us.  We enjoyed the story and the nice surprise!

Kung Hei Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year!  We have learned all about Chinese New Year and held our own celebrations in school.  We read the story about the animal race and how the Chinese Calendar was ordered.  We made red lanterns, Chinese bead drums and we even had a Reception dragon parade all around the the school.  We were really proud when all the children in their classes came to wave and clap their hands for us and we felt very proud when Year One and Two cheered us in the playground!

 

After we shared our experiences of Chinese New Year from the weekend, we wrote it down and tasted some yummy spring rolls and prawn crackers.

Mystery Reader

Our latest mystery reader was a lovely surprise - it was Hadley's Mummy!  She read us a special story from her home of Vermont in America, 'Alpaca Lunch' by Jennifer and John Churchman.  We really enjoyed hearing a story from another place in the world and learned about the different foods grown at different times of the year.

Reading Update

Your child will have brought home their first reading book today and you should have received an important letter by email to accompany the book.  The reading book, reading record and packet must come back to school every day.  A copy of the letter is available below:

 

 

 

Library

Please note that our day to visit the library has changed from Friday to Wednesday.  Please ensure your child has their library book in their book bag each Wednesday.

Mystery Reader

Our Mystery Reader this week was Ms Tomlinson from Year 3.  She brought Mog the cat with her to read "Slinky Malinky" by Lynley Dodd.  Ms Tomlinson told us that Mog and Slinky Malinky are friends because they are both cats from stories!

Mystery Reader

Our Mystery Reader last week was Mrs Houston from Year 1.  She read "Peace at Last" by Jill Murphy, dressed in her dressing gown and slippers!  We enjoyed hearing about the Large family.

Happy New Year!

We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and are ready for the exciting Spring term ahead. 

The children returned to school full of beans, excited to tell us all about their Christmas holidays. We loved hearing about all the places they had visited and of course all the gifts they received from Father Christmas. We would like to thank you for all our lovely cards and generous gifts - we are very lucky teachers!

 

Following on from our visitors before Christmas, where we learnt about Christmas celebrations in other countries around the world. Reception celebrated ‘Kings Day’, a traditional Spanish celebration. The children learnt about how it took the kings until the 6th of January to reach Bethlehem to visit baby Jesus and about other Spanish traditions, such as Roscon de Reyes (Kings cake). The children really enjoyed making Kings crowns and decorating their very own Kings cake (a donut with sweets on top).

Mystery Reader

Before Christmas our surprise reader was Mrs Yarwood from Year 4.  She sang "Puff the Magic Dragon" to us and we loved it!

More Christmas Around the World...

Teresa's Mummy came into school to talk to us about Christmas in Italy.  We loved hearing about the different cakes to eat, especially pandora and panettone.  It was interesting to hear that all the towns in Italy have a life size nativity village which you can walk around. All families on 24th December go to church for a midnight service, even little children and babies.

We were also fascinated to hear that on the 5th January, an old lady on a broomstick, called La Befana, visits the children and brings them sweets if they have been good or a piece of coal if they haven't behaved themselves!

Buon Natale!

A visit from our post lady

After we had made our beautiful Christmas cards and learned about how we receive cards through the post, Mrs Picton, who cleans our school and delivers the post locally, popped in with her post bag.  She explained what would happen to our cards once they are taken away to the post depo and how they would get posted to our families as a surprise - we hope you enjoyed receiving your card through the post!

After we learned about the Nativity Story and Advent, we began to talk about how countries around the world celebrate Christmas differently.

 

Marco's Mummy came in to talk about Christmas celebrations in Spain.  We learned how Spanish people receive a visit from Papa Noel on Christmas Eve and the importance of Epithany.  Children and families in Spain attend a special parade on 6th January and celebrate the visit of the wise men.  We heard how children leave their shoes out and receive presents from the wise men as well as having a delicious ring-shaped cake to eat. If you find the hidden toy King, you are King or Queen for the day!

 

Max's Mummy came in to talk to us about how Christmas is celebrated in Sweden. We learned about receiving presents on Christmas Eve from Santa Claus himself and having a feast on the evening of Christmas Day.  We also heard about the celebration of Santa Lucia on 13th December and tasted some yummy kanelbullar (cinnamon swirls)!

Walk to School Assembly

 

We had a visitor to come and talk to us about the importance of walking to school and an exciting new initiative that our school will be taking part in.

We are now learning tricky red words. These words cannot be sounded out.  We often use the statement ‘you can’t Fred a red’ (you cannot Fred talk (sound out) a red word).  These words need to be learnt by sight.  The children will use the letter pattern and initial sound to help them recall the word.  They are common words we use everyday. Please practise the new red words we send home each week. Thank you for your continued support.

Mystery Readers!

To promote a love of stories and authors at the start of their reading journey in Reception, we have introduced a 'mystery reader' slot on Wednesday afternoons.  So far our special story reading visitors have been Mrs Chard with 'Hamish' the Highland cow and Mrs Garbett accompanied by Barney (in full costume!) with 'Dogs don't do Ballet!'.

Technology Week

 

Reception Ash have been challenging themselves and having fun all week learning how to use our new electronic toys.  They have learned how to code using the Codeapillars and control Robodog using a remote control, as well as using our Beebots and remote control bugs.  We have even explored now-older forms of technology, including tape recorders, cameras, CDs and telephones and tinkered with simple circuits to make a bulb light.  Thank you for all the observations of your child using technology at home on Tapestry, these have been extremely useful to us.

We love to read!

We have a wide range of story books in our Reception classrooms of both traditional, popular and new authors.  We also visit the school library every week which is well stocked with high quality stories and non-fiction books for the children to choose from.

 

If you would like an idea of appropriate high quality stories to share with your children at home, we have attached a list below as a starting point.

We have been enjoying many stories by our author of the moment, Julia Donaldson.

Road Safety

We have enjoyed having visitors from 'GIST' to talk about the important message of road safety.  We loved the talk from Paul and Pete and what a brilliant experience being able to sit in the drivers seat!

...and listen to our road safety reminder!

Diwali

 

We started the week talking about how people celebrate Diwali - the festival of light.  Some of our children who celebrate Diwali came to school in their special clothes and talked to us about their family celebrations.  We had great fun trying out some Bollywood dancing, making rangoli patterns and reading the story of 'Rama and Sita'.

Read Write Inc. Phonics

Hopefully by now, your children have been teaching you at home, the sounds that they have learned in school e.g. m,a,s. Please keep sticking the sound sheets that we send home each day into the red book. These books are for you to keep at home to practise the sounds with your children. Please try to keep up with the sound that is sent home each day - there are lots more to come! 

 

After each group of sounds taught we will blend them to read words. This is called 'Wordtime' and we will send 'green' words home to practise.

 

Thank you for your support in your child's reading journey.

Reading Meeting Reminder

 

Dough Disco and Five-A-Day!

As part of developing our fine and gross motor skills, we take part in 'Dough Disco' where we dance with the dough using our hands!  

When it is wet playtime, we dance the routines from our 'Five-a-day' videos in the classroom.
