Starting Big School - September 2018
The children have now started their full days at school and are enjoying ‘creating their lifelong love of learning‘ here at Beam County Primary School.
The children are displaying good levels of involvement whilst exploring their new classroom and the outdoor area. They have made new friends, and are adapting well to the new change in their routine.
During the next 6 weeks the children will be observed in their play in order for teachers to plan linked to the children’s interests and in order to develop their next steps in learning.
We will be focussing on helping the children to understand what makes them unique and special. We will be teaching name writing, drawing portraits and discussing about family life. Please feel free to send in family photos or photos of the children when they were a baby (ensure you label all photos with your child’s name please).
Please feel free to speak to a member of the team if you have any questions!
The children are starting to settle into Reception and are slowly getting used to our dinner hall.
With at least two options to choose from every day, the children are learning how to eat sensibly using a knife and fork and sitting amongst their new friends.
Please can we remind you that there is to be no chocolate, fizzy drinks or products that contain nuts.
What we are learning in Reception- September 2018
We are learning to recognise numbers 0 to 10. We are using our knowledge of numbers to sequence numerals in order and to count objects from a larger set to make a given set. We are improving our ability to count one object at a time and recount our answers to check we have got it right!
Why don’t you go on a number hunt around your local area to investigate which numbers you can find!
We are learning to recognise and write the letters in our name. We are beginning to remember that you start at the top of your letters to form them correctly. We have been exploring how to write them through a range of media; sand, glitter, shaving foam, pens, paintbrushes and water.
In Phonics, we are learning to hear letter sounds in words in order to blend them to identify the word and identify rhyme and rhythm. The children need to practise singing a range of nursery rhymes; why not sing a few on your way home from school!
