Another great week learning new things!

Amanda Ellis (amanda) on: Red and Green Butterflies BLOG!

We've had another great week in Reception, the children continue to amaze us with their "can do" attitudes towards new learning in whole class and group activities.

In Maths, the "Butterflies" enjoyed looking at photographs of how they made the Little Red Hen's bread. They showed determination and perseverance to complete the task, thinking carefully about the order to put the photographs in. This week's home learning challenge is linked to this learning objective so that they can consolidate their learning and show you what they have learnt in school.

In Phonics, they have learnt the phonemes "z" and "y" and our first digraph (2 letters that make one sound) "qu". The children are doing well learning how to correctly write letters which they do every day in their Writing books. They have come so far since September and we are very proud of their positive attitudes towards writing. Please share with us any writing and drawings they do at home, we'd love to see them.

In English, the children have learnt how to write a sentence beginning with tricky word "I". They have written about their weekend news and how they made bread last week. The "Butterflies" have learnt to think about the sentence they want to write, say it aloud and then write it, using their "phonics arm" to sound out words. We are very proud of them for showing such a "can do" attitude, writing is very tricky when you are only four and five.

The children have also enjoyed retelling the story of the Little Red Hen using Pie Corbett's actions from "Talk for Writing". They are starting to remember the order the animals come in the story and are using lots of expression when saying some of the words from the story, especially when they pretend to be the Little Red Hen and say, "Oh very well then, I'll do it myself and so she did!" It's a joy listening to them.

At carpet time we have started to learn a couple of our Christmas songs. One song is about Five Little Elves jumping on Santa's sleigh and being mischievous, we think you'll like it when we sing it at our Christmas concert on TUESDAY 11th DECEMBER at 9am. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oc7g47b9vl8

As you can see the "Butterflies" have definitely earned a three day weekend! We hope they enjoy their long weekend.

We are looking forward to more exciting learning opportunities next week. See you on TUESDAY 27th NOVEMBER

Reading and Phonics activities

How to pronounce phonemes (letter sounds) correctly.

Have fun learning our new Jolly Phonics songs!

Reading at home

The children are enjoying learning to read in school and taking a reading book and library book home each week. A few parents have asked for advice when hearing their child read at home. This short video is very useful and gives some good tips about how to hear your child read. Please watch it and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask a member of our team

Helping your child to read at home

Sing our tricky word song with us!

We are learning to read tricky words in class and we love singing these songs to help us learn the words.

We can't sound out tricky words as they wouldn't make sense...this is why they are very tricky! In class we are learning; the, I, go, no, into, to, he, we, she and be. 

Please help us at home to recognise these words by sight. There might be tricky words in our reading books that we can point out, or even in our favourite story books at home. 

 

 

We love the Tricky Word Song. "Don't let it trick you"

Sing a long to our new Tricky Word song!

Maths 

In our Maths lessons we enjoy counting, singing number rhymes, using numicon, playing games, using the smartboard, learning about shapes and patterns and lots more fun activities.

We like to learn all about numbers and spend two or three weeks learning about one number at a time. We record lots of learning in our Maths books and on Tapestry (our online Learning Journal).

In the Autumn term we started watching Numberblocks in our Maths lessons, they teach us lots of great facts about numbers. We use the ideas in the videos in our group activities and in activities around the classroom. We have now learnt all about numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and watched the episodes in Series One. You can find these episodes on BBCiplayer if you search for "Numberblocks". 

We are learning about numbers 6 and 7 in January and February.
