            Year R

The Year R staff would like to congratulate the Year R children on settling into school so well and send a big 'Thank You!' to parents for helping their child to complete the 'All about Me' boxes over the Summer Holidays.

The Year R children have had a busy first few weeks at school; we have explored the Year R Base and Garden and been singing lots of Nursery Rhymes. We have been learning about our senses and have used our sense of touch to explore mixing different materials with water, and our hearing to listen for different sounds.

In maths we have been counting to 10 and 20 and learning to recognise, write and order these numbers. In English, we have started to learn letters and the sounds they make and have been reading our ‘Humpty Dumpty’ words. We have listened to lots of traditional tales and learned how to create story maps to help us learn the story and the different characters. Thank you for your continued support, the children look forward to teaching you phonics on Fridays.
