Our Learning Journey

The children in Reception have had an amazing first week back at school. We have spent the week getting to know each other and have made lots of new friends. The children have really enjoyed exploring their classroom and their surroundings. We had our first lesson in Music, PE and Swimming this week and we can't wait to return for more! 

In our classroom, we have spent time in our Role Play corner using our imagination and acting out different role play scenarios. We have been busy in our Construction and Art Area making and doing and have explored our Outdoor Learning Area. The children have been really eager to write this week where we have been practising writing our names, letters and numbers. 

Overall it has been a fantastic week. I am so proud of how all the children have settled into school and we are really excited about all that has to come in the Term. Well done everyone and make sure to have a good rest over the weekend. See you on Monday!

Unit One: Transportation Vehicles (Part 1) 

Unit Overview: Students will learn the theme about Transportation on land, water and air. Teachers will focus on asking how are they going to school, holiday etc and responding to the mode of transport one will take to reach a destination. 

Weekly update: This week, the students learn about Transportation on Land. They will focus on key vocabulary words related to land transportations such as Train, Motorcycle, Car and Bicycle etc. An online flashcards programme will be introduced in the next Weekly Round Up Email.

 

Physical Education

The children have been introduced to Swimming and PE teachers this week. In Swimming, they have been assessed to see what level they are working at, as for PE they have been negotiating space safely.

Music

In Music we have been learning how to follow instructions by a conductor: dynamics (forte and piano) and tempo (beat). We are also learning rhymes and simple songs from different cultures.

Continuing Our Learning Journey at Home

Please send into school a framed family photograph next week to share with the rest of the class. Your photograph will be left in school for the remainder of the year. Here are a list of questions to go through with your child: 

  •  Who is in the photograph? 
  •  How old are they? 
  •  Where does your family come from? 
  •  Who is the eldest/youngest in your family? 
  •  Who is the tallest/shortest in your family?
