Reception Newsletter

7th July 2017


Next week we will be continuing the topic ‘Our World’. The children have been discussing the world in which we live and thinking about what makes their world so beautiful. This week they have drawn pictures and said why their world is beautiful.

Communication, Language and Literacy

This week the children have been writing their own sentences using adjectives. We have been thinking about different words we can use to make our writing more exciting. We have been talking about words to describe different creatures from under the sea, such as crabs, lobsters, sharks and turtles.


Practice with your child using different adjectives to describe creatures from under the sea or any other animal the children can think of

Maths Development

We have been so busy this week in Reception estimating and weighing different objects on the scales. The children have been practically weighing and making good estimations about which objects are heavier or lighter.

At home:

Choose 2 objects for your child to predict which one they think will be heavier or lighter. If you have any cooking scales at home, can you use them to measure objects with your child?
