Reception have been working extremely hard since starting school in September. They have been enjoying daily phonics and number time sessions, along with learning through their interests. In PE lessons they have learnt a variety of skills such as gymnastics, dance and more recently basic throwing and catching skills. In Reception we are so lucky that we can take our learning both indoors and outdoors. The children have loved exploring and sharing adventures indoors and outdoors having large scale football matches, making their very own pitch. Princess adventures and pirate adventures to name a few. All this super playing supporting their imaginative play and giving them the opportunity to form a narrative.
With the children enjoying daily phonics they are beginning to apply these skills in other areas. Writing in a variety of ways such as labels, letters, short words and even having a go at super sentences. It is fantastic to see their enthusiasm to write. Reception are also off to a flying start with their reading. Segmenting and blending new words that they come across, recognising tricky words and beginning to build up fluency.
All these new skills that they have learnt along with making new friends, learning to solve any conflicts between one and another. They have grown in confidence and independence.
