Reception Bulletin w/c 11th March

Posted on Updated on


Week commencing 11th March


This week we will be learning the ar sound as in cart and farm.  See the videos below from Geraldine the Giraffe and Mr Thorne to see what you can do at home 🙂

If the children would each like to bring in a small ‘ar’ object (labelled with their name if they want it back) or a story about a barn, a farm, or any other ‘ar’ thing, the teachers would love to see them.

Blending practice is available at the Dinosaur Egg Game at Level 12 focuses on the ‘ar’ digraph.

The tricky word we will be learning is there, as in, “Are there any birds in the sky?”


In Maths we will be learning how to make bar charts and pictograms and how to find information from them. There is a simple game you can play at home at the following link See how many fish you can catch and then see how many of teach colour you caught on the bar graph. Just be careful not to hit any jellyfish as you will have to start again!


Our topic focus this half-term is Up In The Air. This week we will be learning about the things which live in the air, or at least spend lots of their time in the sky! To help the children think about this you could encourage them to lie on a mat and look at the sky (NOT the sun) for a few minutes and notice what is up there.  An important question is whether these things are alive, or not …..

Reading Books Many of the children now have reading books. Record book should be signed each time you read the reading book with your child.  It is very useful for the teacher to know if, and how many times, a book is being practised at home.
