Welcome to Europe Class – Reception Year.
This week we will be listening to and discussing the story Owl babies and learning about owls.
In maths the children will be learning about 3D shapes- identifying, naming, describing and sorting them. They will be looking carefully at their sides, faces and edges. All donations of small junk modelling boxes would be gratefully received (particularly unusual shaped ones- Toblerone packaging, gift boxes etc) for sorting and taking apart to look at how they are made.
In phonics the children will be revising the phase 3 phonemes, digraphs and trigraphs. They will also be reading and writing sentences and captions.
Reception Class are starting their Forest School sessions in our wild area this half term. They will be taking place on a Tuesday afternoon.
For each session the children will need:
• waterproof jacket and trousers (named) for wet weather.
• old, warm layers of clothing (named). Layers are better than 1 thick jumper. Tops need to have long sleeves and it will protect them from brambles and insects.
• wellingtons or walking boots if they have them. (Not Trainers, they are not suitable).
• warm socks.
• hat and gloves if cold.
• long trousers.
Please inform us if your child has any food allergies.
As a school we are continuing to focus on developing children’s reading. It is crucial for children to develop good learning habits by practicing their reading and spelling their key words at home. They are all doing so well and will continue to do so if you support them at home.
