13th October 2017


This week we have been talking about, and drawing pictures of, all the things that God created.

We have heard the story of 'Handa's Surprise' and have discussed which foods are healthy and those that are not so healthy...

In our 'Letters and Sounds' sessions, we have been learning the sounds represented by 'm', 'd' and 'o' as well as practising the sounds we have already learned: 's', 'a', 't' 'p', 'i' and 'n' . We have been thinking about words that begin with these sounds and, also, blending these sounds together to make words such as, 'at', 'pat', 'tin' and 'dot'. Your children have been given a set of the first six sounds to use at home and are thoroughly enjoying the challenge of experimenting with these sounds, to make words, at school!


Today, for the first time, we met our 'Prayer Buddies'! Our Prayer Buddies are children from Year 5 who will accompany us during Masses we will be attending throughout both our Reception year and Year 1. We all had a great time showing them around our classroom - it turns out that they like 'playing' just as much as we do!!   


Next week, we will be continuing our learning about Creation, Healthy Eating and Our Senses.


Wishing you all a peaceful and restful weekend and looking forward to seeing you all next week.


Best wishes,


The Reception Team.
