The children have been fully immersed into their learning this week. They are feeling very confident in their school environment and are beginning to form strong friendships within the class. It has been wonderful to see them looking so happy and settled at school.
This week we have started to look at letter sounds. The children have been learning the sound of the letter rather than the name of the letter. We are all very excited about starting our phonics programme, Reading Fundamentals next week.
We have also started to look at our numbers from zero to twenty. The children have really impressed their teacher with their number knowledge and we have really enjoyed looking at numbers beyond twenty through our number songs.
The children have enjoyed a variety of interactive games on the whiteboard which has helped with their number recognition and ordering.
We have also been investigating 2D shapes, learning to name and find shapes including a circle, a square, a rectangle and a triangle.
We have also been pretending to be pirates in our outdoor area so will continue this next week. The children have made a mind map of things they need for their role play area such as treasure maps, flags and pirate hats.
It has been another amazing week in Reception. Well done everyone and have a lovely long weekend. See you all on Tuesday!
