Welcome to Reception Class.
This term in Class R we are learning all about Homes.
We have started by reading and retelling the 3 Little Pigs story and looking at the different materials used when building homes, we were lucky enough to have a thatcher come and talk to use about this important skill. We will be carrying on with learning the phase 3 sounds and tricky words this term, you could have a look at what these are, using the phonics play website http://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/.
In literacy we will be learning to use our phonics to write captions and short sentences. For numeracy this term will will be learning to add and subtract groups of objects and naming and describing 2D/3D shapes.

We enjoy inviting in members of the local community to come and talk to the children about a variety of different topics. The children are always keen to listen and ask questions.
The children in Reception have their own outside learning space. But once a week they get to visit the Forest School area where they can take part in a range of activities. Today they have been den building! In the winter months they enjoy a hot chocolate afterwards.
The children have enjoyed reading the story of the 3 little pigs. They helped to design and build the role play areas where they can act out parts of the story and even pretend to blow it down!
