In Maths we have been learning about 2D shapes, we have searched around the school to see which shapes we could find in our environment. After this we went on a shape hunt around the classroom and sorted our shapes. All children have been trying to use the correct language to describe the shapes they found.
In Literacy we read the book Wash Scrub Brush! We carried out lots of practical activities such as, washing our hands, getting dressed by ourselves, washing babies and sequencing how to brush our teeth correctly. Children then created information books about how to keep healthy. We have noticed that many children struggled with getting changed. Please ensure you encourage your child to get dressed and undressed at home as this is an essential skill children must master when they are in Reception. Lots of children are given one to one support to get changed for P.E and it would help if you could show your children how to look after their clothes by putting them in a neat pile.
In phonics all children have begun to read simple words using their phonics knowledge. This week children have been practicing to push each sound to blend the sounds together in order to read the word e.g. tin, din, and dad. You could encourage your children to read simple words by saying each sound quickly. We are so proud of the super comments from families in children’s reading diaries. Thank you to all the parents who are asking their children questions about their books. Some ideas could include… Where and when did the story happen? Who are the characters in the story? What is the story about? What has happened in the story so far? What do you think will happen next?
