Reception Bulletin w/c 4th Nov

Posted on Updated on



In Literacy this week we are excited to be learning to read, write, hear and say two more letter sounds (c), (k) and the end sound (ck). 

We will also be practising blending the sounds we have learned to date: s a t p i n m d g o c k ck.  Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with c and k. 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.

We will also be learning the tricky words the and no. 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. Listening to the tricky word song found at is an excellent way to help children recognise them.


In Maths this week we are learning to use everyday language related to money, eg money, cash, price, cost, how much? change, coin, note …. There is practice counting coins at clicking on ‘one coin’ and 1p up tp 10p.


This week each Reception class will be investigating the questions: why do animals move? How do animals move? And which body parts enable animals to move?


Reading Talk

There will be a talk about learning to read in Reception at the BSB, and how the children can be helped at home, on Tuesday 6th November 1-2pm.

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.
