Our first golden award went to each and every child in reception. All of the children deserve recognition for their fantastic start to school here at Our Lady’s. Welldone!

This week we have started learning our sounds, please use your RWI sound mat which I gave to you at our parent meetings if you would like to practice saying the sound and writing the letters at home. There is more information about Read Write Inc on the Reception - Curriculum & Parent Links part of our website. So far we have learned:
m - Maisie, mountain,mountain.
a - Around the apple, down the leaf.
s - To the top of the snake, slither down the snake.
d - Around his bottom, up his tall neck, down to his feet.
t - To the top of the tower, down the tower, across the tower.

In Maths we have been learning about the number 1 this week. Finding lots of things which we just had one of, playing games and writing the number 1. I wonder if the children can explain more of this to you at home! We have also been reading the rainbow fish and thinking about how we could be more like the rainbow fish. The children had some lovely ideas of what they may share with their friends and we made our promises by putting our marble in the pot.

We had a lovely time with Siobhan from CeeCee dance on Wednesday, the children really showed their fantastic listening skills and dancing skills.

We are going to do show and tell on a Friday, so if the children have anything they would like to bring to share (one per child please) please send it in their bag on a Friday. Please don’t worry about bringing something every Friday, we can speak about anything we would like to or listen to other children. If it could be related to our topic, ourselves, that would be great!

We hope you have a lovely weekend, fingers crossed the weather will be just as glorious as today!
