Class One Weekly Update; Summer 2: week 10 – 1ST July
Tomorrow is ‘moving up’ day. The current reception children will arrive at school tomorrow and go straight to class two where Miss Jones will be meeting them. They will spend all day in class two and get to experience life as a year one pupil. Parents will then need to collect them from the same place as the rest of the school at the end of the day. Current nursery children who are going to be reception children in September will arrive and be collected from class one as usual. They will be taking part in more reception based activities including maths, reading, writing and phonics……and they will even be cooking their own afternoon snack!
With the sunny weather forecast, please can we remind all parents to provide your child with sun cream and a sun hat. Please can you make sure that both are named. Please also ensure that your child has a water bottle in school.
Sports day is planned for next Tuesday and at the moment the weather looks good so hopefully it will go ahead this time.
During phonics and handwriting this week we will be introducing the letter /m/. This is the last sound that we will be introducing this year and for the remaining few weeks nursery children will be recapping the phonemes (sounds) taught so far. We will also be continuing to work on their fine motor skills through a variety of different activities in order to help them develop a good writing position ready for September.
Reception children will continue to practise their handwriting pre cursively with a different letter focus each week. We will also be ensuring that all children can confidently write their names pre cursively.
This week in Maths the children will be consolidating their understanding of doubling and halving in the continuous provision. During guided sessions the children will be looking at different times of the day. They will be sequencing different activities in the day and they will be introduced to telling the time to the hour.
