Reception – RD

Welcome to our class learning page. We hope you enjoy seeing what we are learning in school.

Mrs Delap Class Autumn Blog

This term our topic started out as ‘All About Me’. The children enjoyed talking about their families, pets and hobbies and used their creative skills to draw their families, pets and their family homes. The children were very excited to talk about what they wanted to be when they grow up. We have some future doctors, nurses, teachers, window cleaners, vets and baby sitters in the making.

In math’s we have been counting up to 10. 20, 30, 40 and 50. We have been counting objects, actions and sounds. We have compared size and numbers and are ending half term by learning to add/say what 1 more than a number/amount is.

 In phonics we have been learning lots of new sounds and some children have started putting words together with letter tiles. We have been practicing our letter formation and writing our names. Our blending is improving every week and some children are now spelling simple words.  

 We share our weekend news on a Monday and because so many children had visited leafy parks and forests and because of sharing their love for our daily ‘Favourite Five’ stories such as Owl Babies and The Gruffalo we followed the children’s interests and took our topic ‘Into the Woods’.

We have enjoyed using our creative skills to make woodland animals from different materials. We enjoyed a nature walk collecting natural materials to make a nest for the owl babies.

We have had a great start to out reception year, the children have settled very well and have worked so hard. I hope everyone enjoys the half term break and look forward to hearing what everyone has been up to when we return.
