In Reception we have been very busy learning new sounds and numbers. Our topic this term is ‘Into the Forest’ we are looking at animals that live in the forest, where they live and how they live during winter. We are reading the stories One Snowy Night, Owl Babies, Stick Man, Stanley’s Stick and the Gruffalo.
We are busy working hard learning our phonics sounds everyday and we love to use our sounds to help us to read and write. Our target this term is to be able to write a simple sentence independently using a capital letter at the beginning and full stop at the end.
Religious Education: We are been learning about how we can see God on Earth looking at the world God created for us.
In our Maths lessons we have are beginning to learn to add and subtract, we now focusing on numbers up to 20. In our math’s lessons we will also be learning to tell the time and use money to buy items in our Park Shop.
Forest Friday will be starting every Friday and in these sessions we will be sorting and classifying natural objects, measuring the height of the tree and we are busy planting in our area ready for Spring. Our next project is to make bird feeders and a bug hotel to encourage Gods creatures to come to our forest. Please remember your waterproof trousers, wellies, hats and gloves every Friday.
