Star of the week!

Pre-writing Shapes

For the next few weeks, we are looking at "pre-writing shapes". These are the movements, patterns and shapes that are needed to help us when we begin to write. We have been making large scale marks of vertical lines and anti-clockwise circles this week, using gross motor skills (our shoulder and arm). Next week we will look at making horizontal lines and crosses.  




Topic - Black history month. For the last couple of weeks, the children have been learning all about the life of Rosa Parks and how brave she was for standing up for herself. Linking with this we have discussed fairness, kindness, equality and similarities and differences between ourselves and others including the colour of our hair, eyes and skin. 


Focus book - Rosa Parks by Isabel Sanchez Vegara


Phonics - Reception have now finished all the phase 2 sounds and are now consolidating all previous taught sounds - s, a, t, p, i, n, m, d, g, o, c, k, ck, e, u, r, h, b, f, ff, l, ll, ss. And also the tricky words 'no', 'to', 'I' and 'the'


Maths - we have been counting objects to 10, counting up to 20 and back, couting up to 50, sorting objects according to size, shape and colour and also creating repeating patterns.
