Reception

14.5.21

We have had another great week in Class R.

We have been looking at the book The Very Hungry Caterpillar and learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly. We have been observing caterpillars in the classroom and it looks as though they might change over the weekend…

We acted out the story and the children came up with some great movement adjectives to describe each stage of the life cycle. We made a story map of the story and sequenced the days of the week.

In maths, we were busy making ‘patternpillars’, halving using butterflies to demonstrate and measuring distance with our programmable Bee Bots.

Next week our story is all about Spinderella, a spider who wants to learn numbers in a football based story.

Thank you to all those of you who emailed in about your child’s creative development.

A reading book targeted to reinforcing digraphs that your child was unsure of has been sent home this week. This is in addition to the banded reading book that your child can choose to read at home and individual words sent home. If you have mislaid your yellow reading record book over Lockdown, please let me know and I will issue a new one.

The school has set a new reading challenge. If your child reads on 20 nights, they will receive a bronze reading certificate, if they read for 30 nights they will receive a silver reading certificate, and if they read for 50 nights they will receive a gold reading certificate. I’m sure that we will see plenty of certificates in Class R. Have fun reading!

Next week is walk (or scooter / cycle) to school week – let’s hope that it is nice and sunny!

Have a lovely weekend.
