Reception - Butterflies



Mrs Foy, Mrs Lindsay and  

Mrs Wort 





We had a very enjoyable half term looking at people who help us, The Enormous Turnip and The Little Red Hen. It was great fun having parents and grandparents in school to share their experiences and baking bread and eating it!

The children are enjoying their phonics and number time sessions. The sounds we have covered so far are - m,a,s,d,t,i,n,p,g,o,c,k,u,b - please keep practising recognising them on sight and finding things beginning with those sounds.

In mathematics we are looking very carefully at the numbers 0-5, by counting carefully, ordering, writing, representing the number/quantity in different ways, looking for patterns, finding as many different ways as possible to take the number apart and put it back together again.

Over the next few weeks we will look at The Gingerbread man, The Owl babies and Percy the Park Keeper to find out more about Autumn, the weather and discuss the meaning of nocturnal and hibernation. We will also be busy rehearsing for our Nativity play which we will share with you in December.




Welcome Butterflies!


It was fantastic to meet you all on home visits and find out about some of the things you like doing.

You are settling in brilliantly and quickly picking up daily routines.

We know that the start of school can be exciting and sometimes bewildering. If you are feeling uncertain at all, please ask an adult to help as we are here to support you and want to make sure you feel happy and safe in school.
