We have had a busy week in Reception and the children have done really well on their first full week in school. They have had lots of fun exploring the big area outside, looking at the apple trees and stepping across the tree stumps. Indoors they have continued to enjoy exploring the areas, in particular playing in the home corner and making models with the lego. The children are also beginning to join in more structured group activities.
Next week we will continue to support the children to settle in and learn through play. We are doing lots of activities to develop the children’s listening, understanding and speaking. We are also doing lots of counting, number rhymes and learning to recognise numbers.
Your child has been gifted with a special pack from Bookstart, which has a book (The Bumblebear) and information on reading with your child. For homework this week we would like you to share the story with your child, talk about the pictures and see if your child can remember the story. We will talk about the story next week.
Thank you for your support this week, have a great weekend!
