This week we will be learning to read and write the letter sounds h, r, v, y . We will be using the sounds that we have already learnt to make words using magnetic letters and boards. We will be blending the letter/sounds together to read.

In our daily phonics sessions, we practice reading ‘Red Words’ which help the children recognise the fact that there are words that are tricky to read because you can not sound them out in the normal way. We are learning the ‘Set 1 red words’.’  In your child’s book bag you will find a bag of red words for you to practice regularly at home. We will add words to this bag as the children learn them. Please keep this word bag in your child’s book bag.


We plan to visit St-Cleer Church on Tuesday 15th October to celebrate Harvest at 9.00am. We would really appreciate some help with walking the children to and from the church. If you are willing to help, please speak to a teacher.

Dinosaur Day

Last week as part of our topic 'What would it be like if dinosaurs were still alive? We dressed up as dinosaurs and had great fun looking at the size of dinosaur bones, discovering a dinosaur egg in our classroom and going on a dinosaur hunt.

This week we will be learning to read and write the letter sounds. : f, b, e, l. we will be using the sounds we have already learnt to make words using magnetic letter boards. We will also be blending the letters together to read.

In math's we will be looking at a number of objects and checking the quantities by counting using amounts up to 20. This will involve estimation skills and understanding more and less. 

Every Friday the children will be issued with a library book to share at home. Please ensure that these are returned by Friday . We now have outside storage for wellington boots and waterproofs, so please feel free to bring in labelled items for your child to wear.


Venturing to the dinosaur era

Reception Class venture into history with the dinosaur era

This term Reception Class will be hunting for dinosaurs within the depths of the woods. The children will be putting their knowledge to the test and identifying various species of dinosaurs. Our intrepid explorers will be putting their archaeological skills to good use, digging for dinosaur bones and discovering fossils. Along our journey Harry and his Bucketful of Dinosaurs will entertain us, alongside many other dinosaur themed stories.

Your little explorers have already started their journey by asking questions such as 'where did dinosaurs come from?' and 'what did dinosaurs eat?'. We have begun looking at the history of dinosaurs, looking into how they have come to be extinct. Our final aim is to discover 'what it would be like to be a dinosaur?'.

We are calling to you to help us with our journey into history. Fossils and artifacts are always welcome to ensure that the children get an authentic experience.
