Live Love Care Think Learn Dare

Reception Times 10 November 2017

This Week:

We have had a lovely week this week finishing off our Room on the Broom work and thinking about rhyming words. Inside we have baked cakes, make handprint witch pictures and learnt about creepy crawlies.

Outside we have been focussing on fireworks, printing firework pictures, making bonfire collages and using chalk on black paper to represent fireworks.

Our community policewoman visited us today to talk about keeping safe in our community, especially while crossing the road. Ask your child what they know about keeping safe on the road and do they know their house number and road name?

Mrs Collins delivered a wonderful collective worship on our new Owl Value of Tolerance.

Phonics & Maths:

In Phonics we have learnt our new sounds ch, x, ng and qu. Thank you for helping your child to practice these at home.

In Maths we have been learning to recognise and write numbers to 10.

Next Week:

We are focusing on Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

It is anti-bullying week. We will be thinking about what it means to be a good friend.

Learning Journeys:

Learning Journey children will be Jessica, Jack D and Rosie.


Thank you for our little witch outfit from Isabelle. It will look great on our display.

If you would like your child to wear wellies in the garden please make sure they bring a pair of clean shoes to wear in the classroom and that the wellies are clearly named. When purchasing wellies please consider the sole/grip as your child may be climbing in them.

Please can all items of clothing and shoes be named.

Have a nice relaxing weekend.
