The children would all like to invite their mums or other special lady in their life to attend their Mother's Day assembly on Thursday 19th March at 9:00am. The assembly should last around half an hour. We have asked for children to send a photo in of them and their mums to be displayed throughout the assembly, these need to be sent in by Friday 13th March. We hope you can come and enjoy all the hard work the children have put into their assembly. Thank you for your continued support.
Welcome to Reception's year group page...
Our new topic this half term is all about 'Under the Sea'. We will be reading lots of different books about our oceans and some of the creatures we might find down in the deep blue! Thank you to all of the children who have amazed us with their underwater scenes using egg boxes, paint, glitter etc they have really brightened up our classrooms.
The children have made a great start with their phonics and we have now covered all of our set 1 sounds. We have made a great start at learning our set 2 sounds which are all either digraphs (two letters, one sound) or trigraphs (three letters one sound). Each sound has a different rhyme such as 'ow' blow the snow' and it would be helpful if the children could recognise and practise writing these sounds in their environment.
In maths, we are starting to understand what is meant by addition. We start off by adding two groups of objects practically by counting how many we have in each group, putting them together into one pile and then count how many we have altogether.
