Live Love Care Think Learn Dare

Reception Times 17 November 2017

This week we have had a lovely week doing activities around the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  We have made stick puppets to help us act out the story, painted the characters and found out where different types of bears come from in the world.  We have also made Pudsey bear biscuits to raise awareness about Children In Need day. 

Outside we have been exploring different textures in our small world play with a spaghetti swamp and alien goo!

Phonics & Maths:

In Phonics we have been practicing writing our sounds and learning how to use magnet boards to make words.

In Maths we have been learning to recognise and name common 2d shapes, say the days of the week in order and know some of the months of the year. Does your child know what month their birthday is in? Can your child name common 2d shapes?

Next Week:

We are continuing our activities on Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

We will be thinking about American Thanksgiving.

Flu vaccinations on Thursday. Well done for handing in your slips (Reception are in the good books with the office!!).

Learning Journeys:

Learning Journey children will be Mikaela, Peter, Conner and Finn.


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.

Forest School for Group 2 on Tuesday 21st November. Thank you to parents who have already signed up to help.

Please can all items of clothing and shoes be named.

Please keep younger children with you in our outdoor area.

Enjoy your weekend and keep warm!
