What an incredible first half term we have had in reception. It truly has been a joy with 30 wonderful children, they have all made a fantastic start to their journey here at Our Lady’s. This week we have really enjoyed reading funnybones stories and making our own skeletons out of paper straws. The children added labels to their skeleton to show where the skull, hips, arms, legs, feet and other parts of the body were! We have enjoyed learning that we all have skeletons and they help to protect parts of our body, aswell as keeping us upright!
We have learned all about God’s creation this half term and in particular this week, we have been thinking about how we can look after God’s creation. We can take care of toys and people, help to put litter in the bin and thank other people who are looking after God’s world. I wonder if you will spot anybody over the next week, who is looking after God’s creation?
In RWI this week we have been continuing to practice our sounds and letter formation, the two new sounds we have learned this week are:
u - Down and under, up to the top and draw the puddle.
b - Down the laces to the heel, round the toe.
In maths we have been learning our numbers 0 - 10, but we have had a particular focus on numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4. Please practice forming these numbers in particular at home and counting anything and everything!
We enjoyed a hot chocolate on Wednesday raising money for CAFOD and a local restaurant, thank-you for all of your donations aswell as your harvest donations, they are greatly appreciated.
Have a lovely break, relax and enjoy spending time together. I look forward to welcoming the children back at school on Monday 29th October.
