Reception Bulletin w/c 18th Nov

Posted on



In Literacy this week we are excited to be learning to read, write, hear and say two more letter sounds r as in rat and run and f as in fit and fan.  

Geraldine the giraffe can be found before for the r sound

Or the children might enjoy the r alphablocks episode instead.

Geraldine learning the f sound can be found below.

And here is the f alphablocks episode.

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 e u r f.

At home the children can have great fun with a pad of post its and a pencil so that they can label in the objects in their room or the house, eg by writing d on a post-it and sticking it on the door, dor would be very acceptable too!

Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with r and f. 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.

The tricky words this week are he and she. Hunting for he and she in their favourite story book is a super way to help the children recognise these words!


In Maths this week we are learning to find the number which is one more or less than a given number. We will continue to focus on developing a good understanding of the words “more”, “less” and “fewer”.


This week each Reception class will be considering how people move if they are handicapped in some way, and how they move if they need to travel greater distances on land.


Reception Festive Sing-a-long

The Reception Festive Sing-a-long is scheduled for Tuesday December 11th at 11.30am. The children will be asked to come to school in red, green or red and green for this event. Please make a note in your diary.
