In Reception, now that they have settled into their new classes, the children are tackling more formal work this week.

In Literacy they have been listening to and discussing lots of stories, as well as choosing their own books to look at from the book corner. The story of the week has been “Colour me Happy” and the children have been thinking about their favourite colours. They have also taken home their first Reception reading books from the Oxford reading Tree scheme and have been able to choose a book to take home from the school library. They have been introduced to Jolly Phonics and are busy learning the songs and actions for each sound as well as how to write them correctly.

The children are coping well with these new challenges and we are looking forward to seeing the rapid progress the children make at this age.
