Reception Bulletin w/c 30th Sept

Posted on


For week commencing Sunday, 30th September


In Literacy this week we are excited to be learning to read, write, hear, say and blend two more letter sounds: t and p. This could be reinforced at home by watching  (t) and  (p).

To help recognise the letter shapes which have been introduced so far the children could also play the first level of Phoneme Pop at

Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with t and p. If your child can find a small object to contribute please make sure it is labelled with their name and class before they bring it to school. That way each object will be returned to its rightful owner at the end of the week.


In Maths this week we are focusing on representing the numbers 1 – 5 in many different ways. By using dotted dice and dominoes in many different activities the children will be learning to recall the quantity a particular dot pattern represents without having to count the dots each time the pattern is seen. Likewise the children will be building up their fast recall of quantities represented by various finger patterns.

Playing dominoes at home over the weekend, if you already have a set of dotty dominoes, would be super preparation for the week.


This week each class will be exploring the effect of light on colour. Some classes may be asked to bring a torch into school if they have one.


This week students will be studying :

  • The Arabic letter ( ب ) : (Bint – girl  ) (Bata – Duck ) ( Baeit – House )
  • School unit : ( Saboora – Board ) ( Hakeeba – Bag ) ( Alwan – Colours )
  • Song : The letter( ب ) .

سيدرس الطالب هذا الأسبوع :

* حرف ( ب )  ( بطة – بيت – بنت – بقرة )

* وحدة مدرستي (  سبورة – حقيبة – ألوان )

* أنشودة الحرف ( ب )

* نشاط : عمل نشاط تطبيقا على الحرف المدروس ( بطة ).  

النشيد    (بٌ بطة نطت نطة       وقعت ضحِكت منها القطة )


Book bags should be brought into school everyday as they are useful for carrying home artwork, notes etc as well as a Library book. Please ensure that only books and papers are in the book bag so that they are not damaged by bulky items, food etc.

Bags generally The only other items the children need are their cap, snack box and water bottle.  It make it much easier for the children at snack time/home time if these items are not packed together into a larger bag.

Long Days start on Sunday 7th October. Classroom doors will continue to open at 7.45am but children should not be collected from the classroom until 2pm.

Individual Photos will take place this week. Please see the schedule below.
