Reception Bulletin w/c 25th March

Posted on


Week Commencing 25th March


This week we will be learning the er sound as in her, herb and after.  See the videos below from Geraldine the Giraffe and Mr Thorne to see what you can do at home 🙂

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

The teachers would be really pleased if each child could bring in a small amount of a dried herb – you can guess what we will be using them for.

There is a short game which helps the children to distinguish between er, ir and ur at

The tricky word we will be learning is one, as in, “One Man Went To Mowwhich can be seen at:


In Maths we will be learning to take away or subtract. If you have some play dough and would like to support learning about subtraction at home playing Subtraction Smash can be great fun.  Instructions can be found at:


Our topic focus this half-term is Up In The Air. This week we will be learning about one more invention which travel through the air … planes. If you would like to try there are some instructions for making a paper aeroplane at:

Arabic Mothers Day Song

If you would like to see a video of the Reception children singing a song for all mothers on Mothers Day the video is being uploaded onto the BSB Facebook Account.

International Day Don’t forget we will be wearing home country National Dress on Wednesday 28th February.

Swimming Lessons will begin immediately after the Spring holidays. The children enjoy the experience even more if they feel confident about changing into, and out of, their swimming costumes.  Therefore please can we ask that you take the opportunity to help your child to practise taking off and putting on their own clothes over the coming weeks. If your child is already super independent about dressing perhaps they could practise rolling their own swimming towel. Rest assured though, that the teachers will be there to help with any tricky bits, and to encourage independence.
