Welcome to Reception!

Our Reception team is

What a wonderful start we have had to the year.

This term we are going to be thinking about the key question Who am I? We will be thinking about what we look like. who we live with, where we live and what our likes and dislikes are. Have a look through the medium term plan for some of the activities the children will be taking part in. 


24th September 

This week we have been thinking about what we look like. We read the story 'All kinds of people' and thought about all the similarities and differences between us all. We used mirrors to look at all our features. We also drew around ourselves and named all our body parts and extended this by looking at what is inside our body. We also read a book called 'Hair Love' and thought about all the different types of hair and hair styles in our class and appreciating our similarities and differences. 

In phonics we have been listening carefully to words and trying to segment them into single sounds or phonemes. Next week we will be starting to learn the letter sounds. 

In maths we have been thinking about matching objects in different ways and spotting similarities.
