Welcome to Reception Class
Term 2 Blog
I hope everyone had a great half term holiday. The children have come back to school even more ready to earn and enthusiastic than before.
This term we will be starting Monday Munchies, a session designed to help the children learn about food and where it comes from. We will taste different foods and find out how they are made and where they come from. This term we will be thinking about different breads and towards the end of term we are going to make our own bread to bring home. If you would like to make some bread at home, click here for a yummy banana bread recipe
The children are making good progress with their reading and I hope in the next few weeks that most children will bring home a reading book to show off their skills to you at home. As well as letting your child impress you, please do keep reading to your child and foster a love of stories and facts by making sharing books together.
Christmas will soon be here and we are getting ready for our part in the play ‘A King is Born’. Listen out for the songs they will be singing any time now…..!

We have settled into school so well, that everyone who visits us, needs to be convinced our children have only just started school. We have thought up a motto for our class which is “Reception class never give up” and every day at least one child can be heard to say this! We are all very impressed by the children’s determination and increasing independence.
Everyone is making good progress in recognising and writing their own names. Please encourage your child to do this as often as possible at home. We are tuning our ears into letter sounds and playing lots of I spy and rhyming games as well as becoming more familiar with counting from 1-10 and matching amounts to numbers.
As always if you are unsure of anything or have a question to ask please do pop in and speak to a member of the Reception class team.
