Reception Ash

Hello and welcome to Ash class web page.

In our classroom, you will find

 

     Mrs Mountney

  Miss Smith

    Mrs Mulcahy

     Mrs Ali-Shah

Miss Cox

 

If you have any questions please feel free to speak to a member of staff at the beginning or end of the day.

In Ash class our P.E lessons are on a Thursday morning and a Friday afternoon. Please ensure P.E kits are in school on these days and all items are clearly labelled.

 

We use the outside area as our second classroom so please make sure the children bring suitable clothing as they will be outside whatever the weather. If possible please leave wellies (named) in school as we have a digging area, water wall and mud kitchen that the children have daily access to.

 

We  visit the library on Friday afternoons and the children will be able to choose either a fiction or non-fiction book to borrow and share with you at home. Library books need to be returned on a weekly basis and placed in the children's book bags ready to change that day.

What we are learning: 25.3.19

 

This week we will be thinking about Mother’s Day. The children will be thinking about what makes their mum special and all the things they do for them. We will also be making some very special presents for Mothering Sunday.

 

In Maths we will be learning how to add one more or one less from any number to 10. The houses in Numberland will have a sign on which will tell the children if they need to add one more or have one less. At home, you could ask your child some quick fire questions e.g. what is one more than 7. How many can they get right out of ten? 

 

In Literacy we will continue to practice writing sentences independently and spelling tricky words correctly as well as remembering finger spaces. The children are working really hard with their reading, especially learning to recognise their sight words quickly, which helps their fluency when reading. 

 

At the phonics table the children will be blending, reading and sorting rhyming eggs.

 

As part of our STEM (science, technology, engineering, and maths) work the children will continue to use the resources provided to construct models. We had some really interesting designs last week which can be seen below. These photographs will be added to each week to celebrate the children’s achievements. The children also worked hard to label their design to inspire others to be creative too.

 

 

Story of the week: My Mum

Maths table: 1 more, 1 less

Finger gym table: threading beads onto spirals

STEM area: resources for construction

Phonics challenge: blending, reading and sorting rhyming eggs

 

Reminders:

 

The writing workshop for reception parents and their children will take place on Monday 25th March at 9.05. There will be a brief introduction by staff and parents will then be able to try a wide range of exciting and inspiring writing activities with their children. These will include superhero writing, comic strips, writing letters in the sand, wanted posters and many more. Please speak to a member of staff if you need any further information.

 

 

What we are learning: 18.3.19

 

What an exciting week we had last week, making kites, playing in the rain, painting and making ladybirds, red nose day activities and dressing up as superheroes. The children enjoyed each and every activity.

 

This week our learning will continue to be based on the story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson. We will be making wanted posters to help locate Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len who tried to steal the prize cow. At the story table the children will be acting out the story using puppets and recording it using the sound buttons. They will then be sharing their stories with the whole class.

   

In Numberland the children will be completing a challenge that has been left by Inky the mouse. They will find out that he has put a spell on the Numberland gardens and that the numbers can only be saved by placing double the amount of objects in each garden. They will be encouraged to write the matching number sentence to break the spell.

 

In literacy the children will be writing wanted posters to help catch the robbers. They will be applying their developing phonic knowledge, having a go at spelling tricky words correctly and using their robot arms to segment. We will also be working on letter formation linked to the letter families that are displayed in the classroom and were sent home during parent consultations. If you have any questions please speak to a member of staff.

 

 

At the phonics table the children will be working on their letter formation and matching captions to pictures.

What we are learning: 11.3.19

 

The children thoroughly enjoyed all our learning last week but in particular dressing up as animals on World Book Day.

 

This week our learning will be based on the story ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson. We will be using our creative skills to make our own ladybirds, using tweezers to rescue ladybirds, and discussing Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len and their cunning plan to steal the prize cow.

   

In Numberland the children will discover that some of the gardens have been spilt in half. They will be sharing the correct amount of objects between the 2 halves of their garden and discussing their findings.

 

In literacy the children will be designing a ‘stealing plan’ and writing wanted posters to help catch the robbers. They will be applying their developing phonic knowledge, having a go at spelling tricky words correctly and using their robot arms to segment.

 

 

At the phonics table the children will be reading captions and finding the match picture.

 

As part of our STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) work the children will continue to use the resources provided to construct models. We had some really interesting designs last week and they can be seen on the STEM display board behind the table. We will be celebrating each of the children’s designs and models during the day and discussing what they have constructed and how it could be adapted. The investigation table will be relocated into the outdoor learning space.

What we are learning: 4.3.19

 

The children have enjoyed all our learning based on ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson which we will continue to use throughout the week and as part of world book Day. We made clay models and did some amazing paintings which you can see in the photographs below.

 

As part of our work this week the children will be making moveable Gruffalo puppets, their own story books based on their own interest and of course pancakes!

 

On Monday we will have an author visit from Sue Hampton with an assembly entitled ‘The Power of Stories.’ Please see the recent newsletter for details of her books that will be available to buy and be signed straight after school.

 

In Numberland the children will have another chance to visit the shop and buy items to place in their gardens. The shop was very popular last week and the children worked hard to count the correct amount of coins to buy their items.

 

In literacy the children will be making their own little books based on their own interests. They will be using their developing phonic knowledge including digraphs to segment the words they need to write.

At the phonics table the children will be playing eye spy and looking for items on the page that start with the digraphs ai, ee, igh, oa and having a go at writing them.

 

As part of our  STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) work the children will continue to use the resources provided to construct models. We had some really interesting designs last week and they can be seen on the STEM display board behind the table. We will be celebrating each of the children’s designs and models during the day and discussing what they have constructed and how it could be adapted.

What we are learning: 25.2.19

 

The children had lots of fun during Feeling Good Week and had the opportunity to try some new activities which they thoroughly enjoyed, particularly the zumba! We were also very lucky to have some special visitors in school, 2 reception parents who are opera singers came into school to talk to the children about singing and music and the different emotions it can make us feel. In addition to some amazing singing they also did some warm up exercises with the children which they absolutely loved and when we sang in class later in the day the children were eager to use the new warm up techniques. We also had a visit from some members of Hitchin Symphony Orchestra who played a range of different instruments and talked to the children about which family of the orchestra their instruments belonged to and how they are played. They played some familiar tunes which the children were very excited to hear and there were opportunities for us to join in with some singing. Thank you very much to all our visitors we really appreciate them giving up their time to come and sing and play for the children.

 

We also walked a singing mile with the rest of the school on Friday afternoon. We sang lots of traditional songs and even did some dancing as we walked. The children really enjoyed it, particularly the singing and we were all ‘feeling good’ by the time we had finished the mile.

 

Next week we will be reading ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson and lots of our learning will be based on the characters from the book. We will be making a clay Gruffalo using buttons and sticks to make spikes and acting out the story. We will also be painting pictures of characters from the story and labelling them with their different features using lots of descriptive language.

 

When the children visit Numberland they will find that Inky the mouse has made a shop and they will be able to buy the items they would like to place in their garden. Each set of objects will have a price label and the children will need to read it to work out how much they cost and find the matching coins. They will also take turns to be the shopkeeper.

 

In literacy the children will be labelling their pictures of characters from the story. They will be using their developing phonic knowledge including digraphs to segment the words they need to write. We will also be writing tricky words at the phonics table which we will be able to use in our writing. Outside we are going to be word detectives and go on a tricky word hunt.

 

From next week we will have a new STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) challenge area which will be resourced with a range of different materials for the children to explore and construct with. We will be celebrating each of the children’s designs and models during the day and discussing what they have constructed and how it could be adapted. The investigation table will be relocated into the outdoor learning space.

What we are learning: 11.2.19

 

The children had so much fun last week learning all about Chinese New year. Why not ask them some questions about the story or the celebration as I am sure they will be able to remember. You could ask them why rats and cats are not friends or why the dog and pig did not win the race! As usual, they did us proud in the school assembly with their dragon dance on Friday, the children really did deserve a huge well done.

 

Next week is Feeling Good Week and the theme is ‘Musical Me.’ The children will be taking part in a range of singing and musical activities. They will be writing and performing their own songs, making musical instruments, participating in a Zumba class and walking a singing mile on Friday along with many other exciting activities. Have a look at the website during the week to see all our leaning.

 

Ash class assembly is on Thursday 14th February at 9.05 and the children are very excited to show you some of the thing we have been learning so far this term.

 

In assembly on Friday morning the children will also be showing some of their learning from during Feeling Good Week. After the assembly parents are invited to stay and visit Strathmore Cafe to enjoy some musically themed baked items that the children have made. Refreshments will kindly be provided by FOSSA and year 2 children will be on hand to serve the cakes and biscuits. Please come and join us.

What we are learning: 4.2.19

This week we are going to be learning all about Chinese New Year. We will be drawing our own dragons, making shakers and re-telling the story. The reception children will also be taking part in a special dragon dance in the hall on Friday at 9.10 we look forward to seeing you there.

 

In Literacy, the children will be using their special new finger space reminders to write sentences about the Chinese New Year story. We will also be tasting different Chinese food and then writing sentences about what is our favourite food and why.  

The phonics challenge for the week is a digraph challenge. The children will choose a picture, use their robot arms to segment the word and then have a go at writing it, remembering to join their digraphs as they write them.

 

In Maths we will be learning how to use vocabulary related to time. The children will be taking part in races outside and then working our what position they have come. In Numberland this week the children will be continuing with their addition challenges and investigating subtraction.

Don't forget children need to have their library book in their drawer on Monday so that they can choose a new book.

The challenges for the following tables are:

 

-maths table: sequencing and ordinal numbers linked to Chinese New Year

-finger gym: making a fan

-story table: The Chinese New Year Story

-Investigation table- Spaghetti

 

Please join us in assembly on Friday morning to see the reception children perform a dragon dance to celebrate Chinese New Year.
