Reception Blog ~ Friday 9th February 2024
This week our focus text is “Handas Hen” by Eileen Browne. This is the sequel to the modern classic, Handa's Surprise, two girls count all of the exotic and exciting animals they discover as they search for their grandma's hen. We have been comparing the setting of the story (where Handa lives) to where we live!
In Maths this week we have been making doubles! We are so clever and have been exploring making doubles in different ways using a variety of resources to help us write our very own number sentences.
Read, Write, Inc.
This week we have had a RWI we have been continuing learning in our sets and have been practising our reading at writing skills.
Here is a link to demonstrate how we say the sounds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkXcabDUg7Q
More of us are ready to begin blending sounds into words. You can find out more information about this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNyFikwNQTg
‘Jolly Phonics’ has some great songs that children can learn at home to support their phonics development: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvAYUvQUrGo
Here is a link for you to use to explore tricky red words:
“I liked searching on the map for Handa’s house!” – Nate
“We did doubling. We add the same number” – Amara
“It’s eco day so we wear green and blue for the Planet” – Teddy
Food at Phoenix
The menus for school dinners are on the school website – please share these meals with your children as there have been some changes to the Spring term menu. The children are still working hard on developing their fine motor skills and controlling their knives and forks. We would love for this to be encouraged and continued at home please. 😊
Thank you for your continued support!
The Reception team.
