This week the Reception children have been preparing for their move to Year 1. They had two circle times with their new classes and had choosing time with their new friends. Some Year 1 children came to speak to us and answered our questions about next year. The children were very happy to find out about the new topics they will be learning about.
The Reception children also wrote about what they are good at and what things they enjoy doing. We then sent them to their new teacher so they can start getting to know their new class.

In Phonics this week we have been practising to read and write words containing the adjacent consonants: sp, st, pr, sm, tw, shr, thr, nch, str and scr. We have also practised reading the tricky words: were, there, one and little.
This week in maths we have been consolidating our knowledge and understanding of adding and taking away using both physical objects and number lines. We were able to solve word problems by looking at what the significant numbers were and identifying whether it was adding or taking away.
During topic this week we spent some time with our new class friends and discussed some emotions we had about going into year 1. We also learned how to do a ‘bridge cut’ and chopped our fruit into bite-size pieces. We undertook a snail investigation in which we discovered that snails preferred eating leaves rather than tomatoes or cakes. We were visited by some African Land Snails that unfortunately escaped from their boxes! We made some wanted posters so that people could keep a look out for them and get them home safely. Our posters were very effective and the snails are now safely back in their home. Great work Reception!

Next week we are getting prepared for our move up to Year 1.
In phonics we will be consolidating all of the knowledge we have learnt throughout the year. This will include: adjacent consonants; sounds; letter names; digraphs; trigraphs; vowels; blending; and segmenting.
Next week in maths we will also be consolidating all of the knowledge we have learnt throughout the year through a range of games and challenges.
In topic we will be writing a letter to our Year 1 teacher and telling them about more about ourselves and the things we love to do. Will will be continuing to get to know our new class and thinking about what we would like to know about Year 1. We will also be talking to some current Year 1 students and asking them questions to understand a bit more about what Year 1 is like. On the last day of school we will be attending a whole school assembly in order to celebrate our achievements and progress we have made over the year followed by a class party.
