We have had a great first week back in Early Years! We have been very busy getting to know new friends and having fun exploring our classroom. 
Our topic this half term is Look at me! Click on the newsletter links to find out more and have a look at the slide show below to see how busy we have been.
This week in PSED we have been talking about using kind hands. To show how gentle our hands are we passed an egg around the circle. We were all very gentle and talked about how the egg was delicate, well done Reception class!
We have been enjoying taking part in Dough Disco everyday while we are at school. We love dancing along to the songs and copying the actions to make our hands and fingers nice and strong for writing!
Reception class have made a great start with Read Write Inc this term. When we are writing we are really thinking about the handwriting rhymes to help us to form the letters correctly
Follow this link to find out more about Read Write Inc, the phonics scheme we use across school.
Each week during 2021 remote learning we added a video to say hello to the children at home with a game, activity or story to listen to. Just click on a link below the class teachers name to watch these.
