Reception Bulletin w/c 21st Oct

Posted on


For the week commencing Sunday, 21st October


In Literacy this week we are excited to be learning to read, write, hear and say two more letter sounds (g) and (o).

We will also be practising blending the sounds we have learned to date: s a t p i n m d g o.

Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with g and o (it is the o sound as in octopus or orange not owl o). 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 class we will be focusing on the words on and off. Encouraging your child to practise taking their cardigan/jumper off and on independently would really help with one planned classroom activity!

We will also be learning the tricky words I and go. Tricky words are words which would not usually be created by blending the individual letter sounds together. Searching for these words in the children’s own story books is an excellent way of practising recognition.

Thank you for the kind donation of old magazines last week, they were much appreciated.


In Maths this week we are learning about repeating patterns involving 2 or more variables (different things) and even some doubles. There is some super additional practice in the shapes pattern game at


This week each Reception class will be experimenting with colour and texture.


Single Use Plastics

Some children are bringing a single use plastic bottle of water to school every day.  We encourage the children to think about looking after our world (the environment) so can we please ask that you invest in a reusable metal water bottle (if you have been providing single use plastic bottles) and clearly label it with your child’s name and class instead.

Cardigans & Jumpers

Some children are beginning to find the classroom ac units a little cool now that the weather is becoming more pleasant.  It is not possible to make the temperature suit everyone so if your child is complaining of the being cold in the classroom please can you send a school uniform jumper or cardigan with them to school each day. As jumpers and cardigans are removed and put back on over the course of a school day it is particularly important that they are labelled with your child’s name and class.
