Week Beginning 17th May 2021


Hello Reception,

We hope you have had a wonderful weekend.

This week are continuing to look at our topic Once Upon a time and are starting a new story 'The Three Billy Goats Gruff.' In Literacy we will be thinking about how the goats felt crossing the bridge and how the troll felt when he heard them. We will be reading some describing words and then decide whether or not they match the troll. We will be retelling the story using the puppets and creating our own wanted posters for the troll.

In Maths we will be thinking about subtraction and how that leads on from addition. We will be using the tens frames to help us see how many are taken away. We will be looking out to see how many goats have been taken away from the field.

We will be exploring all things The Three Billy Goats Gruff throughout our different areas of Reception and will be trying to create a bridge for the goats to walk across and work out how to program the beebots over it.

We will also be exploring Churches as a special place for Christians.

A few house keeping reminders:
PE days are now Monday and Tuesday so please ensure your child is wearing kit on those days and those days only. All children who's hair is longer than their shoulders needs to be tied up and all earrings are removed or taped up.

Please ensure your child is coming to school wearing the correct uniform including the correct PE kit and shoes. If there is any issues please speak to your child's class teacher.

Please make sure that children have the correct outdoor clothing for the weather conditions and that their spare clothes are returned to school including changes of underwear and socks. A light raincoat is always a good idea at this time of year, but we will soon be needing sun hats too. If you would like your child to apply suncream during the day, please make sure you send in a named container. Children will apply the cream themselves, but we will supervise them. Children are not allowed to share cream unless we have specific instructions from both sets of parents!
