Week Beginning 25th November
This week in Maths we have been using the part part whole model to help us find the different ways to make 4.
We have used all sorts to help us. We are practicing writing the addition too.
At home you could practice finding the different ways of making 4 and write them down.
This week in Literacy we have learnt the letter sounds ‘f’ and ‘e’. Our teachers are very proud of how hard we are trying to form our letters correctly. We are getting very good at segmenting the sounds in words and blending them to read as well as segmenting the sounds in words to write them. This week we also had our first attempt at writing a sentence. We had to remember to put a finger space in between each word.
Can you add these letters to your phonics cards and make more words? Can you practice forming these letters correctly?
Week beginning 18th November
This week it has been National Nursery Rhyme Week.
Reception has been filled with the beautiful sound of the children’s voices singing the nursery rhymes.
Look at the photographs, can you guess which nursery rhymes we have been singing?

Can you find these sounds in your phonics card pack? What new words can you make with the sounds we have learnt so far?

We began our week learning about Remembrance Day. We worked together to create lots of different beautiful poppies.
In Maths we have started our learning about the number 4. We watched the Number Blocks episode ‘Four’. We compared 4 with other numbers, using language such as greater than and less than. We explored squares and rectangles which we found out were 4 sided shapes.
At home can you look around your rooms for squares and rectangles?
We have been learning the name and sounds of the letters c and k.
We have continued used our knowledge of the sounds we have learnt so far to segment and blend to read and write cvc words.
Can you practise writing the letters 'c' and 'k' at home? Watch the videos below to help you form the letters correctly.
We read the story of The Gruffalo's Child and enjoyed making stickmen for her.
We really enjoyed wearing our pyjamas and raising money for BBC Children in Need. We shared our stories with our friends and our teddies.
We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
Week beginning 4th November
This week we have been enjoying exciting bonfire and firework activities. Mr Clift got the fire pit burning for us so we toasted marshmallows. We carefully put the marshmallow onto the end of our stick and took it in turns to carefully hold our marshmallow to the fire, they were very sticky and delicious!
We followed a recipe to make firework biscuits. We used coloured icing sugar in piping bags to decorate them. They are so colourful!
In Maths this week we have been learning about the number 3. We watched the Number Blocks episode, ‘Three’ and ‘One, Two, Three’ We used the part part whole model to find the different ways of making 3 and recorded these as additions. We explored triangles which we found out were 3 sided shapes.
At home can you practise finding the different ways of making 3? Can you remember them in your head?
In Literacy this week we have been learning the name and sounds of the letters g and o.
We have used our knowledge of the sounds we have learnt so far to write cvc words, we listened carefully to the sounds in the words and then wrote them using our lovely letter formation.
At home, can you read these words? You could ask someone to read each word and you could either write them using our fantastic letter formation or use your phonics cards to make them.
Week beginning 28th October
