Reception had their very first Celebration Assembly this Monday! Congratulations to those children who received the award – we look forward to our next assembly!
This week, we have been learning our new Talk for Writing story in Literacy. The children have done a great job at remembering all associated actions! We have continued practising our Jolly Jingles, linked to the letters i, p and n.
Our rhyme of the week has been ‘I’m a Little Teapot’.
In Maths Mastery, we have been focusing on the number 3. We have been introduced to a new Numberling from Numberblocks, have practised numeral formation and have been representing numbers in lots of different ways – we have been talking a lot about how different representations of a number hold “the same value, but a different appearance“. We have also been exploring the number 3 in our outside area through a number hunt where the children have collected natural objects to represent a numeral; talking about which number is the biggest and which is the smallest; and performing a range of actions (hopping, clapping etc) to a corresponding numeral.
Next week, we will continue work on our Talk for Writing text ‘Stuck in the Mud’. We will be introducing the number 4 through Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons. The rhyme of the week will be Miss Polly had a Dolly.
Homework: your child will be bringing their homework folder home on Wednesday containing Jolly Phonics work to reinforce our work on i, p and n. Please ensure this is returned for the following Monday. Also, your child could hunt for the numeral 3 in their local environment e.g., door numbers or numbers in the supermarket!
