12th October 2018


A very good evening to you all!


This week, we have been learning all about '4'. We have explored the differences and similarities of squares and rectangles and immersed ourselves in A. A. Milne's poem, 'The Four Friends'. We have also listened to Allan Ahlberg's 'Funnybones' stories and discussed how our bodies work. It turns out, that they're amazing!


On Wednesday afternoon, we met our Year 5 'Prayer Buddies'. These children will accompany us to Mass and school liturgies throughout our years in Reception and Year 1. Additionally, they will be our great friends, outside, in the playground.


Today, we heard the story of 'Anna's Amazing Multi-coloured Glasses' by Wendy Body and, next week, we will be creating our own multi-coloured glasses! 


Many thanks for your positive comments in your child's Reading Diary. Your children appear to be thoroughly enjoying their daily phonics sessions and this week, in addition to learning 'n' and 'm', have learnt the tricky word 'no'. This weekend's Reading Pack contains another book without words and a 'cut, blend and match the word to the picture' activity. We hope you enjoy sharing these reading activities together. Please ensure that your child's Reading Pack is returned to school NO LATER THAN TUESDAY 16th OCTOBER as we have to rotate the books around the group. Thank you for your understanding and support in this respect.


Next week, we will be re-visiting the story of 'Anna's Amazing Multi-coloured Glasses' and investigating our senses of sight and hearing.

We will also be investigating '5'.


Wishing you all a peaceful and restful weekend.


The Reception Team.
