The children have settled into our reception class brilliantly and are enjoying their new environment and making new friends.
This half term our topic will be about 'School Life'. Throughout this topic we will complete a different range of activities to learn about life at Noak Bridge School. We will go on visits around the school, learn the new routines and expectations as well as having the opportunity to role play in our own version of the classroom. As a secondary topic we will be looking at the story the Little Red Hen, and discussing how the harvest takes place each year as well as looking at features of a farm and the animals you might find there.
In Literacy we will be reading a variety of stories and fairytales, as well as learning to use our imagination to tell our own stories or adapt existing ones. We will also be starting our phonics programme (Read, Write, Inc.) where we will learn to recognise the individual sounds, blend sounds together to make a word and begin to read and write the initial sounds of words.
In Maths we will be practising ordering and writing numbers 1 to 10, and beginning to find the number 1 more or less. We will also be learning to count and recognise numerals higher than 10, learning about the days of the week & months of the year and exploring 2D shapes in the environment.
Your child will be provided with a phonics folder containing all of the sounds we have been learning in class. Please practise reading and writing these sounds and reading at home with your child as often as possible.
