Weekly learning update 11th September 2015

Our Learning this Week

                                                Reception 11th September 2015


Language, Literacy and Communication

We started our Jolly Phonics with the letter sound “s”. We played phonics games on the whiteboard and had a go at writing an “s” in the porridge tray.

We explored objects in a water themed bag, we talked about what they were and then had a go at writing labels for the objects.


Mathematical Development

We have been using Numicon to help us count and placing the pieces in the correct order in a number line. We used the interactive whiteboard to play a number sequencing game.

Knowledge and Understanding of the World


We have introduced our topic “Pitter Patter Puddle Play” which is all about water.

The children came up with some fantastic ideas when asked what they knew about water. Their knowledge and ideas will give us the starting point for planning future activities.

Personal and Social Development, Wellbeing and Cultural Diversity.


We have been discussing feelings related to our class mood boards. We have also discussed appropriate ways to play with each other outside on the big yard.



Creative Development


Children have been exploring a variety of resources in the creative area of the classroom.

We have been learning some Autumn songs in the hall with the rest of the school. Our favourite is “Big Red Combine Harvester”


Physical Development


We did games in the hall with Jonathon which helped develop our listening skills.


Don’t forget to bring your child’s named PE kit into school for Monday afternoons.


Welsh Language Development


We have been reminding ourselves of all the Welsh we use in the classroom and the children have been amazing at remembering lots of it!  Over the next few weeks we will be having fun learning more Welsh words using Tedi Twt to help us.

                     Anything else…


This week’s home challenge is for children for find as many things in the home that use water. You can make a list together by drawing pictures or writing, or you could tweet photos to the school Twitter page @BYM_Primary

Don’t forget to bring your signed forest school consent forms back to school.

Have a good weekend!
