Reception

Thursday 23rd September 2021
Reception have enjoyed a brilliant week! They have impressed me with their fantastic work in Phonics and we have begun writing simple words with the sounds we have learnt such as sit, mad, mat. Well done everyone for working hard on your letter formation as well!
In RE, we have been thinking about how we are special to God and that God knows all our names. We used a range of media to make our own names in a creative way.
There has been lots of lovely turn taking and sharing, as well as building friendships.
I have been very impressed with the children for saying bye to their grown ups, and walking across the yard and into school all by themselves! Well done - super independence!
 
Well done Reception!
Enjoy the weekend!

Reception have had a brilliant first week as a class of 30 children! They have all played wonderfully together, getting to know each other and having lots of fun!
We have begun our first Phonics lessons and your child will have brought home their sound book on Friday. We will add the sounds for the week into your child's book. Please practice one per day and ensure your child's book is returned every Monday so the new sounds can be added.
We have talked lots about ourselves and our families linking to our RE topic of 'myself'. We have thought about our names and how God knows each of our names.
We have also been learning our school prayers. You may want to practice these at home (they can be found in your welcome pack from the summer.)
 
I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Welcome to Reception Class at St Charles!
We've had a lovely week getting to know the children and cannot wait to see all the children together on Monday!
We have spent lots of time outside enjoying the sunshine and playing in the Mud Kitchen, on the bikes, going for treasure hunts and creating a range of pictures!
 
Have a lovely weekend!
