Week Two already!
Reception really are back in the swing of things now and we had a fabulous first week, kicking off our new topic of 'Let's Celebrate' with lots of learning about Bonfire Night. The children really impressed us with their knowledge, questions and maturity when we discussed the rather tricky story of Guy Fawkes and the important subject of how to stay safe on Bonfire Night. We hope you managed to see some fireworks, even though we could not celebrate as usual this year.
We also hope you are all coping ok with the new lockdown measures during this most unusual of times. If you need any support or are having a tough time, please reach out. We are always here to help and signpost support. We are all in this together.
Thursday is Children in Need. Children are invited to come to school wearing spots/stripes for a money donation.
This week in class we have noticed that lots of children are still requiring support with the following basic skills. It would be fantastic if you could work on these together at home to help your child develop their independence, self-help skills and general understanding of the world around them:
- Getting their coats on and off and zipping them up
- Doing up buttons
- Putting their jumpers on and off
- Using a knife and fork
- Wiping themselves after using the toilet
- Knowing the names of the days of the week.
This week we will be continuing our learning about Celebrations by focusing on the Hindu and Sikh festival of Diwali. This is a really great opportunity to broaden children's horizons about the world around them and to explore cultures and beliefs different to their own. We will be focusing on two different texts to help us find out more about this celebration, what it means and how people all across the world mark it each year.
Our focus texts will be:
Please find below the week's Class Learning and Home Learning. Keep posting on Tapestry to let us know how you are getting on with these tasks and with any other learning you are doing at home.
Stay in touch, stay positive and stay safe.
