The ‘Shining Stars’ in Reception -Mrs Hartley

 

Reception Teacher

In Reception class the children enjoy a range of exciting learning opportunities, both inside and outside. They have lots of fun whilst reading, writing and investigating mathematical concepts, through child initiated learning and focus activities. Pupils love to explore the world around them, developing and applying their imaginative, expressive and problem solving skills.

Please take a look at our Reception blogs to learn more!

‘The Great Pet Sale’ Maths Open Afternoon  

It was  lovely to see so many parents and carers at our Maths open afternoon. There were lots of maths activities to join in with, such as  subitising  dots on dice, playing in the pet shop, paying for biscuits, creating a tally chart of the pennies in the provision, guessing how many pennies there were in the jar and much, much more!

Thank you for supporting the children in their learning! A massive thank you also to our Year 6 maths ambassadors and the E.Y.F.S. team! A fun time was had by all!

EARLY YEARS READ WRITE INC PARENT AND CARER’S WORKSHOP 2nd October 2018

On Tuesday afternoon, it was lovely to see so many parents at our Early Years RW Inc Reading workshop. There was a presentation outlining the teaching strategies we use, how parents can help at home plus information to take away.

There were also mini demonstrations of parts of our RW Inc sessions and a video clip was played, all about using ‘pure sounds.

Thank you to everybody who attended and to the children who took part in the demonstrations!

The Shining Stars have been exploring subtraction!

Children in Reception class have been exploring ‘1/2 less than’ and subtraction in the provision. 

They have been using what they know in a variety of contexts. The children have been playing games 

of skittles and using both objects and number lines to count / jump backwards to solve problems. Our

Year 6 maths ambassadors have also helped to support the children’s mathematical development.

Well done everybody!

THE SHINING STARS HAVE ENJOYED A BUSY WEEK OF LEARNING!

Children in Reception class have enjoyed exploring the values of numicon pieces and adding the number of circles together to find a total. There has  been some super recording of maths learning! The ‘Maths Meeting’ is also now established and the children take part in learning number facts alongside the large abacus. The abacus demonstrates these facts in a fun and concrete way. In literacy, the children have been using their phonic skills to write about their favourite parts of ‘How to catch a Star,’ by Oliver Jeffers. There has been new learning about ‘The Good Samaritan’ story and lots of child initiated play in the Early Years provision. Well done, everybody!

Welcome to all of our new ‘Shining Star’ Reception Class children and their families!

Our half term enquiry question: Why is it good to be me?

Reception children are focusing on story books written by the author Oliver Jeffers. Their class name ‘Shining Stars’ is based upon the story ‘How To Catch A Star.’ The children have enjoyed listening to the story, predicting what might happen next and talking about their favourite parts. The children have been busy choosing their own learning both inside and outdoors. They have drawn pictures and written about activities that they have particularly enjoyed.

Well done everybody!
