Dear Parents and Carers  

R.E

This week, the children have written some beautiful prayers to thank God for our wonderful world. 

Next week we will be learning about the Jewish faith.  The children will be listening to the story of Hanukah and learning about the significance of the Menorah lamp. 

Phonics

 Next week we will be using all the sounds we have learnt from Phase 2 and 3 to read some words. The children will be saying whether the words are real or nonsense words. 

At home: You can play some of these games online

Literacy

Next week we will continue to talk about all the fun we have had in Reception throughout this year and talk about what we have all learnt.  The children will be thinking about what they want to learn in Year 1 and will be given the chance to visit their new classes, so they know where they need to go in September. 

At Home: Have a conversation with your child about what they have enjoyed learning this year in Reception and ask them what they would like to be when they grow up.

Maths.

Next week we will be looking at and drawing maps.  We will be learning about how we get to different areas of the school by giving people directions.  We will introduce the children to the 'Beetbots'.  These are little machines that the children program to move from one spot to another
