Reception Bulletin w/c 9th Dec

Posted on



In Literacy this week we are going to review all the sounds that we have learned this term. As well as recognising and writing the letters correctly we will 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 l ll and segmenting words which contain these sounds.

The following games will give practice identifying initial sounds recognising letters (we have only learned to ll)  and blending words using the letter sounds we have learned (you will need to print out or make Bingo cards first).

The tricky words this week are you and put. There is a mix of tricky and blendable words to be found in the dinosaur egg game at


In Maths this week we are learning to use vocabulary for weight eg light, lighter, lightest, heavy, heavier, heaviest. We will be investigating whether large things are always heavy and small things always light. We will be comparing two or more objects to decide which is lighter and heavier.


This week each Reception class will be bringing their investigation about transport to a close.
