Reception W.B 29.02.18

Date: 2nd Feb 2018 @ 4:02pm

This week in literacy we have continued with our independent stories and have been encouraged to write as much as we can; some of us even managed to write two whole pages!

We’ve explored number bonds to 10 in greater depth this week in maths and used numicon and bar modelling to help us. We’re hoping to be able to recall the number bonds off the top of our head and shout them out when Mrs Payne quizzes us on the carpet next week.

On Wednesday afternoon we were all extremely relaxed after a lovely ‘Frozen’ themed yoga session. We were shown how to move and twist our bodies into some tricky positions and learned how to control our breathing. If it’s something you’d like to try at home, search for ‘Cosmic Kids yoga’ on Youtube and there’s a fantastic range of videos to try.

We particularly loved getting messy on Thursday this week when making bird feeders. We investigated what happened when things were heated up and cooled down. We used a mixture of lard and bird seed to create hanging feeders and we’re looking forward to spotting the birds next week when we take part in the ‘Big Garden Bird Watch’. We weren’t very impressed with the smell of our feeders though so let’s hope that the birds aren’t very fussy!

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be looking at the following areas as part of an ongoing programme of Sex and Relationship Education (SRE) within our school.

These topics cover some elements of Knowledge and Understanding of the World (KUW), Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSE) and Physical Development (PD):

  • Myself and Others
  • Family Networks
  • Body Awareness
  • Hygiene

Your child will be exploring the above topics through examining the following questions:

What emotions do I feel?

How can I tell other people how I feel?

Can my emotions affect my friends?

Who is in my family?

Who can I talk to at home and at school?

What can my body do and what is it good at?

What does my body look like?

How does my body work?

What do I need to do to keep clean and healthy?

When can I help myself and when should I ask for help?


Appropriate questions that arise from the children will be answered honestly and any resources that we will be using are age appropriate.

We recognise that parents play an important part in their child’s SRE, and we would like to encourage you to explore these questions/ topics with your child at home as well.

There will be an opportunity to view resources and ask any questions after school on Thursday 8th February.


Please could we ask that the children refrain from bringing teddies into school and putting large key rings on their book bags, they don’t fit in the school trays and the children often get upset if they are lost or they accidently get broken.

Many thanks.

Have a lovely weekend and well deserved rest after another busy week.

Miss Sherliker, Mrs Taylor and Mrs Payne.
