Welcome to Reception – Kristiansen Class
Reception class is named Kristiansen (LEGO) Class after Ole Kirk Kristiansen.
He was a Danish carpenter. In 1932, he founded the construction toy company The Lego Group.
Over the course of his working life, Kristiansen developed his business from a small wood-working shop that sold household products into a wooden toy manufacturer.
In 1934, he named the company Lego and invented plastic Lego bricks following the purchase of a plastic moulding injection machine in 1947.
The name LEGO is an abbreviation of the two Danish words “leg godt”, meaning “play well”.
Lego in Latin meant ‘I study’, or ‘I put together.’
In maths, the children will be identifying 1 more and 1 less.
The children are working really hard in phonics. They will be learning the two phonemes made by oo (the u sound as in book and also an oo sound as in moon). So oo can make both these sounds in different words.
Tuesday is internet safety day-We will be discussing the key messages “If I feel worried about anything, I can tell an adult I trust”. Before you tap and click…You need to stop and think… and tell someone.
It is Children’s Mental Health Week. At Niton School for PSHE, we follow the SCARF -Safety, Caring, Achievement, Resilience, Friendship scheme.
