This year transition is slightly different. We are inviting groups of children into our setting with 1 adult, throughout the week beginning 7th September, this will be for a play and stay session 9.30-11.00am
Week beginning 14th September - All children in school 8,45-12.30pm.
Week beginning 21st September- All children in school 8,45-3.15pm
In Reception we give the children 3 weeks to settle in, building upon the timetable, meaning that by week beginning 28th September, our timetable will be in full swing, as we introduce and slowly build the timetable up for the children.
The children have settled very well into the Reception classroom and have enjoyed exploring all of the activities in the setting. They are learning to be independent by looking after their belongings and closing their lockers. Each morning we do an activity before the register-book share, wake up shake up or handwriting practise and we are very good with our routines.
Our first topic that we have learning all about is 'Goldilocks and the three bears'. We have taken part in lots of different activities, whether it be role playing in our three bears cottage to making different trails in forest school. We have used our phase 2 phonics knowledge to write some initial sounds and CVC when talking about the story. In maths we have started using numicon where we are finding out which shape represents which number and trying to match them up.
After half term we have lots of exciting things coming up. Our new topic is going to be all about 'Festivals', we can't wait to learn about bonfire night and Diwali.
