Mystery Authors!

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.

...If you'd like to have a go at home!

Write Dance and Scrimbling

Reception Ash have been taking part in 'Write Dance' sessions.  They have listened to a story and acted out large movements to the words.  We then returned to the classroom and carried out 'Scrimbling', creating smaller movements on paper and in foam to the music.
