Reception Bulletin w/c 25th Nov

Posted on



In Literacy this week we are excited to be learning to read, write, hear and say two more letter sounds b as in bat and bun and h as in hit and hen.  Geraldine the giraffe can be found below. 

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.

Each class will be creating a display of objects which begin with b and h. 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 we and me. There are some super tricky word songs which really help the children to recognise and remember specific tricky words. One example is below. 


In Maths this week we are learning to use number sentences for addition and subtraction.  This means being able to describe a picture of 2 sets in the following way, “2 and 1 more makes 3” or “5 take away 3 leaves 2”.


This week each Reception class will be considering transport by boat. There will be lots of opportunities to make boats from different materials and test their strength in water.

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.
