Reception WB 24.6.19

This week we are going to be reading “The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch” by Rhonda and David Armitage. We will be using the book to revisit speech bubbles and instructional writing as we will be making our own sandwiches linked to Mrs Grinling's picnic.

This week we are focusing on measure and deepening our understanding of addition and subtraction. We will be using the star words;

Part, whole, plus, altogether, is equal to, First, then, now, plus, is equal to, Subtract, minus, part, whole, is equal to, More, fewer, is equal to, same, different, compare

Sports day is on Wednesday 10th of July from 9:30 – 10:30. Letters went out about sports day please let me know if you have not seen these or you need more information about the day.

This term we are continuing to focus on our reading skills, and we have started some guided reading groups. Please can you make sure you are reading at home regularly and filling in your child’s reading records. If your child is missing their green or red words books, please let a member of the team know so that these can be replaced.

Show and tell continues on Friday afternoons. I have sent out some home learning ideas and the items can be anything including drawing, writing, or a joke (ideally not a toy) linked to our current topic “Oh, I Do like to Be Beside the Seaside” to ensure we maximise full learning. Show and tell allows children to work on their questioning skills and gain confidence in front of their peers.
