Our Learning in Reception
Term 3 Week 2
Your children have settled well into their new morning routine of making their dinner choice inside at registration. This week, they have been enjoying activities around the theme of Winter as well as making good use of the Post Office in the role play area.
We have been learning how to say and write the Set 2 Speed Sounds, which are sounds made up from two or more letters. This week, we have focused on:
igh (‘igh fly high’) and ee (‘ee what can you see?’)
As well as reading with your child every day, please could you help them have a go at reading and writing the igh and ee words. If your child would like extra challenge they could practise reading and writing the ‘red’ words:
I, no, to, go, the, into, he, she, we.
Red words are words which cannot be sounded out; they must be learned by sight.
This week our focus on measuring has continued; we have been ordering objects by weight and comparing containers by capacity. Our number work has focused on using the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’ when comparing two sets of objects.
When comparing two sets of objects, practise using the language of ‘more’ and ‘fewer’. When ordering by height, practise using the language of ‘taller’ and ‘shorter’. Have fun comparing the capacity of containers - bath time is an ideal opportunity!
Save the date:
Our next Forest School session is on Wednesday 7th February 2018.
Have a wonderful weekend.
