Reception - Pipers and Tigermoths
Our teachers are Miss Dodd (Pipers) and Mrs Butler (Tigermoths)
Our teaching assistants are Ms Roches (Pipers), Mrs Adams (Tigermoths) and Mrs Osborne (1:1 in Tigermoths)
Another fabulous week with the children learning the first set of letter sounds. Home learning this week is being sent out via the seesaw app, let us know next week if you have problems accessing this.
We have read 'The button box' and 'Frog and Toad's lost button' as part of our maths learning this week, with the children sorting a variety of items in the class. Perhaps you have some buttons or beads they can sort at home?
The children have enjoyed the story 'You chose' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T14qMVCyEIY
and it has provoked much discussion.
Next week the children start full time, we will try to open the gates at 2:55pm ready to collect the children at 3pm. Please remember that we are starting Old Sarum Adventures next Friday, our outdoor learning sessions. The children should come to school on Friday in their comfortable home clothes (jeans/ leggings, t-shirt and jumper/ fleece). Nothing too precious as we will probably get dirty. They also need waterproofs - either jacket and trousers or all-in-one. They need to bring their school uniform in a bag and we will get changed at lunchtime.
Ready for outdoor learning!
Fun in Reception
w/c 14th Sept
We have continued getting to know each other and have been busy talking about our families this week. We have shared pictures of our families and enjoyed 'The family book' by Todd Parr where all the families are different and all the families are special.
Lunchtimes have been going very well with the children enjoying chatting together whilst they eat their lunch. Please try to order their lunches from home as it simplifies the start of the day in the classroom. Thank you for sending in lots of water - they have needed plenty of hydration breaks in the beautiful sunshine.
In maths we have been matching items and we have read 'Monkey Puzzle', 'Simon sock' and retold the story of Noah's Ark. Perhaps you can try some matching at home?
The children have enjoyed a new subitizing video with country music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UH8rLym53sw
Next week is our final part time week, we will be talking about our classes and our friends, starting to learn some letter sounds and sorting items in maths.

This week we have been settling into our new routines and getting to know each other. We have enjoyed the stories Only one you by Linda Kranz and Superduper you by Sophy Henn. You might like to enjoy this Puffin Storytime and draw along with your children https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFK_PLg0FYk&pp=QAA%3D
We have also started to develop our mathematical skills with subitizing - here is a link to our current video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6yyz_OycV4A
Next week we will try to post some pictures of the children enjoying the activities we are offering at school but in the meantime here is our curriculum overview for the first half of term for our topic 'We are Old Sarum'
