Welcome to Reception!
Our topic this half term is ' Why do cows drink milk?'
We have been exploring different farm animals, their produce, their young and their homes. We have even had a fantastic visit to the farm where we prepared milk and bottle fed the lambs, collected eggs and investigated what we may find inside them, held chicks and ducklings, brushed the pigs and had an amazing tractor ride!
We have made non-fiction booklets about all the information we received on the farm and even wrote letters to the farmer thanking him for our experience.
Your child will continue to take home a reading book and reading diary daily. We ask that you read with them regularly throughout the week and sign their reading diary. The children will now bring home weekly spellings. Please practise these with them, the children will be tested on these on their reading day.
All children will change their library books on a Friday.
We are continuing to work on recognising numbers in different contexts and are showing confidence with simple addition and subtraction problems. We are also continuing to recognise 2D and 3D shapes within the environment.
As always in Reception we continue to make relationships, share with one another and have fun!!
Please keep up to date with our blog where you will find out about all the fun we have been having, lots of photos and you may even find questions for your children to respond to!
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to pop in and ask, we love to see parents!
Please take a look the reading website below. It will enable your child to access a variety of reading books for free. We love reading in Reception and with support from our parents we are becoming fantastic confident readers!
