Week 9 (04.11.19)

Welcome back! I hope you have all had a lovely and relaxing half term. I look forward to hearing all about the exciting things you got up to!

English: This week our focus story will be 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff' By Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe. We will be reading and retelling the story together, sequencing the story and begin to sentence build. 

Maths: In maths this week we will be counting and adding: saying the next number and reading addition. This is a game that we will be playing in groups this week that you may want to play with your child at home. All you need is some building bricks and a dice!
Take in turns to roll a 1-6 numerical dice. Then make a tower of that number of bricks, and say how many will be in the tower if you add one more brick. Then take the extra brick, check, and, if correct keep all the bricks. If wrong you give the bricks back. Have six goes each, then build a model with your bricks!


Phonics: We will be recapping the sounds we have learnt so far and begin to move onto Phase 3. We will be learning the sounds 'v  d  r  f  h'. HFW: can, yes they, like said. We will be introduced to the monster Angry A. 

PE: PE will be on Friday and will be based around Three Billy Goats Gruff. We will be creating movements for the different characters and events in the story.

Welcome to Robins!

We hope you have all had a lovely holiday and are now excited for the year ahead.
We are!

 

The start and end of the day

The gate will open at 8.45am and will close at 8.55am. Children need to be in school by this time. Myself or another member of the reception team will greet the children at the gate by the classroom.  If you arrive after this time you will need to come through the main office and sign your child in and get a late mark. 

At ‘home time’ we will line the children up and hand them over directly to you from the classroom gate. Please do not come through the gate. Please can you let the office know if your child is to be collected by someone different. We will not let them go with anyone else unless we have been notified beforehand. It is always helpful if you give us a wave when your child is at the front of the line.

This week the children are in from 8:45am - 11:30am. 

Pegs
Each child has been allocated a peg with their name on in order to hang up their coats and PE bags. Under their names will be a picture that begins with the letter of their name. Please show your child their pictures to encourage them to be able to find their peg and hang up their coats independently. 

 

Water bottles

Please ensure that your child has a named bottle of water in school everyday. We will ensure that they are given the opportunity to have regular water breaks throughout the day. These bottles will need to be named as they are kept in the same area and MUST ONLY CONTAIN WATER! Water bottles should not be put in book bags as we have had many reading records and books damaged by leaking bottles.

 

Topic

For the first few weeks we will be getting to know the children. They will become familiar with the rules and routines of the classroom. The topic focus for this half term will be ‘All About Me’. 

 

I will be updating our blog every week to inform you of our classroom activities and adventures. The class page will also be used as a means of giving announcements and news so please check this at least once a week.

We are looking forward to an exciting year and hope that your child enjoys their first year at school. If you or your child have any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to come and speak to us so that we can work together to resolve any issues (however small, we know that they are important to you and your child). If you have any exciting news please feel free to share with us. Our positive partnership is paramount to your child’s successful learning journey.

 

 

Kind Regards,

Miss Evans and the Reception Team :)

Simple sentences are short and sweet and have a capital beginning and a full stop. Narratives have a beginning and end, and connectives (i.e. "next", "and then"). Robins will have to try their best to use their phonics and produce some lovely writing they can brag about considering they did it all by themselves!

 

In maths, we will start subtraction/taking away. We will begin by taking away only 1, but as the week progresses, we will take away more numbers up to 10. We will do this with numerals, words, and images. If you practice at home, feel free to bring in some of your wonderful work.

We'll be writing lists of ingredients, writing full sentences, and coming up with names for our made-up flavours.

We will be sorting shapes by how many sides they have, how many corners, if they are round, if they are long/short, ect. Towards the end of the week, we will try to do the same thing but with 3D shapes.

Welcome back Robins! I hope you all had a wonderful break filled with fun and (some) learning! I know I did! What did you guys do? Rest? Visit London? See friends and family? Eat lots of yummy food? I can't wait to hear all about it! I hope everyone is ready to get back into the swing of things! Summer is here and the weather is warming up, so make sure you bring in your water bottles on Tuesday.

 

In maths, we'll review our months of the year and days of the week by looking at calendars. We'll look at important dates like birthdays and holidays, and learn what they look like on a calendar. We'll also look at 2019 as a whole and see how many special days we can identify on a big, 12-month calendar.

 

In literacy, we'll be talking about what we did over the break. We'll have class discussions, write sentences, and toward the end of the week, we'll "plan" our own holiday by choosing a destination, food, and a means of transportation. What kind of vacations can Robins come up with?

Spring 2019 Week 12

 

Week of 1st April 2019

Menu: Week 3

 

NOTES: 

  • Show & Tell is for Snails this week, on Thursday as usual.
  • We finish at 1:30 on Friday.

 

Wow, what an amazing term! Robins have definitely proven to be young, aspiring learners. They've all made their own progress since January, and it's heartwarming to see! what a wonderful experience all around. Can't wait to see what progress we can make after the break!

 

Because of the many practices for class assembly last week, we're going to continue some of the English and maths we were meant to complete last week. This means writing full sentences in English about what we've experienced in spring so far, and for maths, this means comparing numbers up to 20. We'll also do some review on coins up to 10p, and will start learning about time.

 

Our storybook for the week is: Happy Easter, Curious George by A.P. Anderson

  • Maths morning on Wednesday.

 

In English, we've been working on writing full sentences. Robins have since began to try and write words on their own--without adult help. We will continue doing this this week by having children write about their spring experiences so far, in just a sentence or two. 

 

In maths, we will begin comparing numbers up to 20. This means children will get a look at different numbers, compare which are bigger/smaller, and see if there are any differences/similarities between these numbers.
