Welcome to Reception from your class teacher Miss Robinson and your teaching assistants Miss Wilson and Miss Fearnside. We are delighted to welcome the children to Clayton Village Primary School, where they have all had a great start to the year! We are extremely impressed with how the children have started Reception, how they have started to learn the routines and how they have all started to make new friends. We can’t wait to watch the children’s progress and journey into Year 1.
Throughout the Autumn term, we learnt the school routines. We have all settled into school and have made lots of new friends! This term, we learnt about different types of homes. This theme supports children to develop a sense of community as a class, as part of our school family and of their local area – Clayton. We have been on a local walk around Clayton, we followed a map and went back in the past! We have been exploring what Clayton was like in the past and have been comparing lots of different things such as vehicles, food and clothes.
In phonics, we have been learning to read and write. We have learnt all Phase 2 sounds and some tricky words. We have started writing CVC words and learning to blend words together. We have read lots of new books such as Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Lost and Found, In Every House on Every Street and many more!
In math's, we have been learning to count forwards and backwards to 10. We now have a deep understanding of numbers 1 to 5. We have been sorting, matching and comparing. We have a deep understanding of compositions up to 5.
In the Spring term, the children learnt about the roles of special people in society and their personal journeys, for example, the police, the fire service and many more. The children learnt about road safety, took their own traffic surveys and took a journey of their own around their local area on foot. The children met people from the emergency services, travel agents and a bus driver and had the opportunity to ask questions and discuss real life experiences.
The children read stories such as Amazing Airplanes, Mr Gumpy's Outing, The Train Ride, Rosie's Walk and We're Going on a Bear Hunt. The children loved story mapping We're Going on a Bear Hunt and performing the story to Year 1!
We particularly enjoyed researching transport from the past and comparing it to the present. We loved discussing how life has changed from the past!
In Phonics, we learnt all the Phase 3 set 2 sounds and have started writing sentences! In Reception, we love writing and do this for enjoyment in discovery. We wrote postcards home and used the Post Office in our classroom to post them.
In math's we explored numbers up to 10 and have loved finding all the number bonds to 10. We loved learning about 3D shapes, building and making patterns.
