What an exciting week we have had in reception! On Tuesday we had a fantastic time with Darren from the FitFENCE team. The children certainly looked the part in all of the fencing kit and they learned lots of the words, such as ‘on guard, advance and retreat’. We were so impressed with their listening skills and their confidence to try something new.

Aswell as fencing, we have been busy in PE playing games from Jack and the Beanstalk! We have been climbing the beanstalk (crawling/walking along the benches and jumping off the end with 2 feet to 2 feet - I wonder if you could have a go at jumping like that this weekend!), using an underarm throw to put the magic beans in the garden and crawling like Daisy the cow whilst balancing magic beans!

In RWI this week we have learned:
o - To the top of the orange, all around the orange.
c - To the top of the caterpillar, curl around the caterpillar.
k - To the top of the kangaroo, down the kangaroo’s body, tail and leg.
The children are recognising the sounds we have learned so far very well. We timed ourselves this week and we could say all of the sounds in 27 seconds! Very impressive.

In Maths we have been focusing on the number 3. We have made our number 3 house, ordered numbers which Merlin had mixed up, listened to stories with 3 of the same characters and threaded patterns of 3!

As it is our school photographs next Thursday, please come to school in school uniform. We will not do PE on Thursday as the hall will be out of use for photographs and it means all of the children will look super smart in their school uniform!

The children’s last day at school for this half term is next Thursday 18th October (Wow, where has the time gone?), parents day is next Friday 19th October. Please make sure you have booked a time to see me/you are aware of the time allocated which will have come back to you with your child after your preference was received at the school office.

We hope you have a lovely weekend,
Miss Dixon and Mrs Mahoney
