We are approaching the end of our final term in Reception and what an amazing year we have had! We have experienced some exciting opportunities this half term. We have observed the life cycle of a butterfly and a duck, we have taken part in a whole year group Sports day and we have made instruction booklets for our friends in the other classes, making cheese sandwiches and popcorn.
We have also learnt more phonics phase 3 diagraphs and we are getting really good at writing our own sentences using our phonic knowledge. We are also enjoying reading in our groups especially, when we share a book with a friend.
In our math's sessions we have been working with numbers to 20 in a variety of ways, using numicon, cubes, money and numerals. We are getting very good at number sentences now and problem solving.
We have all been super busy this term. We have been learning a lot of different phonics sounds recently and have been learning lots of facts about numbers 1- 10.
All the children are doing extremely well in their reading groups. Most of the children are able to identify initial sounds in words, or blend small words already. Some children are even reading captions.
The children's writing is also coming along nicely, they are beginning to form most the letters correctly and the majority of children are beginning to write small words or simple captions.
There have many celebrations over this past half term and we have taken part in lots of different activities including Diwali, bonfire night and Children In Need.
We have also started our mini bus adventures and some of the children have had the opportunity to go to the large supermarket store and learnt all about sugary drinks and cereal. The children have gained confidence in different situations and are able to ask lots of questions when we are out. Additionally the are very good at following instructions and keeping safe in a different environment.
The children have taken part in our Nativity play this year and were absolutely amazing. They were all extremely confident in singing and dancing and some of our children even narrated the play! It was fantastic and all of their teachers are very proud of them.
Over the past week we invited the parents in to decorate a hat for the party and the end of the term. It was lovely to see so many parents come in and support their children. Thank you for coming. There will be other opportunities throughout the year for parents to come in again.
We have had a super term and are looking forward to seeing the children continue to flourish in 2018!
