What a fantastic first half term your children have had at St Leonard’s, well done everyone! The children have been working really hard at learning our school routines and rules. They have fully embraced learning new sounds in phonics and having a go at ‘Fred talking’ and blending the sounds to say the word. In English, the children have done a super job of performing and creating text maps for the story ‘Rosie’s Walk’. In maths the children have been learning all about the number from 1-4.
Reception Autumn 2
We are so very proud of all the children in reception this half term.
The children have worked hard with their phonics, our text ‘Owl Babies’ and the place value of the numbers to 10. The children have particularly enjoyed learning about the Nativity story in RE, making their junk models in DT and making a timeline of toys in History. The children’s nativity performances were outstanding. They sang beautifully and performed the actions with confidence.
The children have grown so much in the last 7 weeks and are now showing that they are taking charge of their own learning and learning behaviours. Thank you to all the parents for all your help with our DT and History work this half term. It really has helped our work come alive.
We are so very proud of you all this half term.
You have worked hard over the past 5 weeks and are now showing that you can work with more independence.
The children have particularly enjoyed learning about our talk for writing text ‘The Three Little Pigs’ which they innovated choosing a new animal such as ‘The Three little dogs’. The children also used their speaking and listening skills to follow and give instructions in English.
In Maths the children have been learning how to describe 2d and 3d shapes with confidence. They also began to measure the length, width and the height of everyday objects. They really embraced the opportunity of measuring large objects with non-standard measure such as wooden blocks and their feet.
In Geography the children were able to tell each other about where they lived and showed they know about the places in their local area by creating their own maps. The children showed perseverance in DT as they developed their fine motor skills be creating a running stitch on their book marks.
Keep practising the skills you have been taught during ‘Tots on Tyres’ the team said you worked incredibly hard.
The children also made us very proud when we visited ‘Little Lancashire’ this week. They followed the school rules, worked well with their peers and embraced all the different role play experiences the setting provided.
Thank you to all the parents for all your support with your child’s learning.
Have a lovely half term! We are all looking forward to working with you next half term.
