Week 2

Maps, maths and fabulous phonics!


We have had such a wonderful week this week. We have been focusing on our listening rules and particularly staying quiet and keeping still. I love handing out stickers for children showing fantastic listening.


This week we have continued to look at maps. Including maps of ourselves. The children were really proud to recall the four countries that make up the United Kingdom and I heard some stories about where people had been and where people would like to go too. We learnt about the flags and coloured our own versions!


This week in maths we have been looking at the numbers 1,2,3,4 and 5. We have made them out of blocks and noticed that they make a staircase pattern with each number being one more.


We have now started to learn our next phase of phonics - phase 3. These include lots of new diagraphs. This week we met our first trigraph - 3 letters that make one sound!

We have enjoyed using our tricky word passwords this week.

Phase 3 sounds taught in Reception Spring 1

This Phase 3 sounds taught in Reception Spring 1 video is designed to be shared with families to help them support the learning at home.

Forest school

This week we wrapped up warm and headed to forest school. The new logs that were donated by a local tree company are looking good and were nice and comfortable to sit on. We looked at the different types of trees and learnt about evergreens.

Here's a few more pictures of what we've been up to this week.

We hope that you have a fantastic weekend and that is isn't too wet! We have all been trying hard to do up our own zips on our coats - well done everyone!
