Reception Blog ~ Friday 28th June 2024

Last week, we enjoyed learning about dinosaurs so much that we decided to continue our exploration of dinosaurs this week too! We have had so much fun learning about the different types of dinosaurs and enjoyed trying to learn their complicated names!   

Read, Write, Inc.

This week in phonics we have been in phonics sets and have been working hard on learning sounds, letter formation, writing words and captions independently,  

Here is a link to demonstrate how we say the sounds:

Lots of us are now blending sounds into words. You can find out more information about this here:   

‘Jolly Phonics’ has some great songs that children can learn at home to support their phonics development:         


This week in Maths we have been exploring positional language and using that language to explain and describe where items, objects, cubes and images are situated. We have also been looking carefully at our own positions in class and are more confident to explain our positions in the classroom and outside of the classroom too!

Literacy / Creative Curriculum

For literacy this week we have continued to write sentences about our focus book ‘Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs’. We talked about what we would have if we had our very own magic bucket! We came up with some wonderful ideas and used these to write imaginative sentences.



Homework will be in your homework files and online this week – please ensure that they are completed and returned by Wednesday 😊


The children are thoroughly enjoying taking part in our PE lessons on Mondays. We are learning lots of new skills and different ways in which to move our bodies. Please remember we are only removing shoes and socks for the time being and ALL EARRINGS must be removed.

Sports day

The children all had a wonderful time participating in Sports Day! We are very proud of our children and have made efforts to celebrate everyone’s hard work in class too! Well done Reception!   


  • If your child will be bringing sun cream into school, please can you ensure that they can apply is successfully on their own and that their bottle of sun cream is clearly labelled.
  • Please remember to bring a water bottle into school every day
  • Please remember that class swap day is next week

Have a lovely weekend.
