Reception Bulletin w/c 25th February

Posted on


Week Commencing 25th February


This week we will be learning the short oo sound as in book and wood.  Please see the videos below from Geraldine Giraffe and Mr Thorne to find out more:

If the children would like to each bring a small oo object (labelled with their name if they want it back) the teachers would love to see them.

Blending practice is available at the Dinosaur Egg Game at on level 11 which focuses on the oo digraph.

The tricky word we will be learning is come.


In Maths we will be learning more about common 3D shapes.  This includes: spheres, cubes, cuboids, cones, cylinders, pyramids …

One way of helping children to really understand 3D shapes, and their similarities and differences is to go for a shape hunt around their home or the local area.


Our topic focus this week is books.  We will be finding out about caring for books, different types of books, the parts of a book, why pages are numbered … as well as sharing books and making lots of books of our own.


This week the students will study :

  • The Arabic letters:   ص))  ( Sous – Chick ) (Sarokh  – Rochet ) ( Saboun – Soap )
  • The long Sound : ( صا – صو- صي- صيـ )

Buddy Reading

This week each child can bring in their favourite book to retell the story to their friends during Book Week (Please make sure it is clearly labelled with their name & class).

Book Character Day and Parade

On Thursday 1st March we are having a book character day and parade in which we ask all children (and staff) in Reception to come to school dressed as their favourite book character. Parents are invited to watch the parade in the Key Stage 1 playground at 8.15am.  After the parade the children will return to their classes to continue with the school day.
