We had fun joining the Reception exit point celebrating their learning with sharing food and playing games.
This week we have been practising forming numbers with various resources.
We have been working hard, playing games on number recognition using the interactive whiteboard. We also enjoyed measuring snowmen with coloured cubes.
This week we have been busy in phonics finding words that begin with the letter sounds s,a,t,p,i,n. We played various letter sound games such as I spy with my little eyes and rhyming soup.
There was great excitement in the reception classrooms this week as we started our Christmas festival topic. The learners shared their knowledge of Christmas and how they celebrate in their homes. They enjoyed many creative projects like hand print Christmas trees, decorating cookies, drawing on cards and decorating trees on the computer. Throughout the week in teams they have been expressing their knowledge of different festivals that have been covered and making information posters. Come and view them in your child's room. We have also been writing Christmas cards, playing with arctic animals in the snow and listening to Christmas songs.
On Friday the learners had a great time at our exit point Christmas party with iCAN play.
We shared some yummy treats and played different games. To finish off a busy and short learning block, the children baked some Christmas cookies and decorated them (it was sticky job).
This week the learners have been revising their numbers up to 20. They have ordered them, written them and matched them with their value. Some children also enjoyed skip counting in 5s and making paper chains for our party.
We have been very impressed with all the learners; how many sounds they have remembered and how their skill of blending is improving week after week. In January we will assess them and move forward based on their abilities. Please note the reading bags are being kept in school over the holidays to allow the learners to rest and ensure they are kept safe.
