This Week's Learning

Week beginning 28.9.20

 

Thank you for all of your lovely family photos that you have emailed to your child's class teacher, the children have loved talking about their families and we are enjoying hearing all about everyone!

It is not to late to email a photo if you haven't already, please email a photograph of your child with their family to your child's class teacher.

 

As the weather is turning colder please ensure your child has a named coat and a named pair of wellington boots in school.

 

Please see the tab - 'Key Information and letters' for exciting news all about Reading Ted's in Reception!

 

This week we are going to be reading the story, "Sharing a Shell". This story is used to support the children when learning about resilience which is one of our learning behaviours we focus on as a school.

 

Phonics - The children will be using all of the listening skills they have learnt in the last two weeks to start recognising and saying each of these letter sounds: s, a, t, i and p. They will also be identifying and sorting between pictures which have these sounds at the start of them.

 

Maths - This week the children will be developing their skills of matching and sorting. There will be lots of exciting activities where the children will be encouraged to match bottle lids to bottles, finding and sorting pairs of socks and sorting items into correct groups.

 

Literacy - The children have worked very hard this week to build their own stories and next week we will be continuing to develop our storytelling skills using an image from the story, Sharing a Shell. We will be working together to build word banks based on what the children can see, who might be in the picture, when the picture is set and what they think the weather might be like.

 

Week beginning 21.9.20

 

As part of our topic next week we would love to talk to the children about their families and people that they care about. Please could you email a family photo to your child's class teacher for the children to share and talk about their families during the school day.

                                                                                                                                                   

   We have also sent reading books home this week. Please share these with your children and record a comment about how they have read or retold the text in their reading diary.

                                                                                                                                                      

We also ask that you send reading diaries into school every day.

 

Please read on to find out about our learning next week.

 

Phonics - The children will be encouraged to develop their listening skills by following rhymes and sound games.

 

Maths - This week the children will be working within numbers to 10. We will be reading number stories throughout the week and learning how to form numbers.

 

Literacy - The children have worked incredibly hard this week to build their own jungle stories and next week we will be continuing to develop our storytelling skills. Using an image from a nursery rhyme we will be asking the children to think about who they can see in the picture, what they think they are doing, what the weather is like and what is happening. The children will then use some of their ideas to create more exciting stories!

Week beginning 14.9.20

 

The children have all come into school and settled incredibly well, we have loved meeting everyone and would like to thank you very much for your support.

 

Please read on to find out about our learning next week.

 

This week, we will continue to support the children settle into school and will be encouraging them to make new friends through stories and circle time activities. We will also be supporting the children to follow the daily routines in Reception.

 

Phonics - The children will be using their knowledge of rhymes and rhythm to continue sound patterns. They will also be going on sound walks and will be trying to identify the different sounds they hear in the environment.

 

Maths - This week the children will be exploring and counting numbers from 0-10. They will be focusing on identifying numbers around the environment and will also be looking at the mathematical equipment we have in the classroom and finding out about how we can use it to help us with our counting.

 

Literacy - The children will be working in their classes to build their own stories! Using an exciting picture, we will be asking the children to think about who they can see in the picture, what they think they are doing, what the weather is like and what is happening. The children will then use some of their ideas to create exciting stories!

Welcome to Earlswood

 

For the rest of the week the children will be settling into school on either Wednesday or Thursday and we will have our first day as a whole class on Friday.

 

We'll be playing 'getting to know me' games, learning our new class routine, having a short tour to find out where everything is, and hopefully having lots of fun!

 

See you soon,

The Reception Team
