Hello and a big welcome back to all of our children, including all of our new children who have started with us this year. The children have all started the year with big smiles and have settled back into the rules and expectations of the classrooms very well.
This week in Reception we have been focusing on the rules and expectations of the classroom. The children have had a lot of time to explore their new environment while showing us what they can already do.
We have welcomed our parents into the classroom this week to support us with our name writing as we are all trying hard to write our name independently.
This week we have started our phonic lessons and we have learnt the new sounds s,a,t and p. These sounds have also been sent home this week as part of our homework. It is important that we also learn the matching rhymes which help us with the formation of our letters.
On Friday we took part in our first footy phonics session. During our first session we practised our gross motor skills by kicking a ball and running in different directions. We also had to bounce the ball over to the sound flashcards that were on the floor. Before we placed the sound under the cone we had to say it out loud.
We love exploring in the outdoor area and have had fun this week in the nature garden where we have climbed up ladders and swung on ropes.
This week in Nursery we worked together to agree on rules for our classroom. We have spent lots of time exploring our routine and learning how to tidy up. The children have enjoyed exploring their new environment while showing us what they can already do.
Parents have started to come into the classroom this week to support us with our name writing as we are all trying hard to write our name independently.
This week we have started exploring stories and songs in Nursery our favourite so far is five little speckled frogs!
Fire Engine Bear has gone to Alfie’s house for the weekend as he has displayed outstanding green behaviour all week. We can’t wait to hear what they have been up to!
The children have been given homework this week to introduce our new topic for the coming week. Our new topic is ‘All about me.’ We are looking forward to learning more about the children.
