September 2021 in Reception 1

Reception 1 have had a fantastic month settling into their new class and meeting new friends.

In English we have really enjoyed joining in with the stories “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?”, “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” and “Ten in a Bed”.

We are all learning the Makaton signs so we can sign our stories and we are getting really great at  animal signs.

In Maths we have been looking at dice patterns and learning to recognise them whilst matching them up to the digits 1-6.

We have met our new friends Jigsaw Jennie, Bertie the Owl and Jerrie our meditation cat! We are really good at focussing on our breathing when we hear our chime and Jerrie the cat helps us pause.

In RE we have been learning about families and we have all shared photographs of our own families.

The weather has been lovely and we have enjoyed exploring the outdoor area and had great fun decorating our willow tree and playing in the mud kitchen.

We have also been thinking about how we work as part of a team when we are in school and we have met our Year 4 buddies and played with them on the field. They have been helping us find our way around the school. We are looking forward to having lots more fun with them throughout the year.
