Well its been another busy week in RKM. We had our first trip to the library where we were introduced to Miss Whiteley. She told us how to handle the books and how to conduct ourselves in the library.
On Friday we got changed into our PE kit and headed off to the hall where we all moved round the room like an owl, swooping and flying around.All the children enjoyed themselves and I am sure we will get quicker and quicker at getting changed.
On Wednesday we had an interactive white board fitted which we started to use straight away. Its great for the children to see how letters and numbers are formed and then to have a go on the board themselves!
We have all got our reading books now, so please listen to your child read regularly.
Enjoy whats left of the weekend !
It`s been another busy week in RKM.We have started our Read, Write Inc sessions, where the children learn all the sounds in readiness for reading.
The children have all been given a reading book, which I am sure you will encourage your child to look at with you and explain the pictures to you. Remember to fill in the reading record!
The topic book is The Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and the children have listened to the story, watched a video of the story and then we wrote down a gist of the story.On Friday we made a helicopter story out of the book, which means the children got chance to act the story out.There was no shortage of volunteers and all the children enjoyed the activity.
PE is starting this week so please remember your child’s kit and make sure its labelled.
Hers to another exciting and fun week in RKM.
Welcome to the first blog of the school year! All the children have joined RKM and are settling in to the class routines. Watch this space for weekly up dates on how our class is progressing!
On Monday all the children were really excited to go into the space dome and see all the planets close up and to learn more about space.
We have some welcome visitors to the classroom, FROGSPAWN ! The children have been interested in looking at them and can’t wait for them to become tadpoles.
Congratulations to Everley who won the red nose competition for Reception. She received a goody bag as her prize.
We have had a very busy first week back to school, Our topic is space and some children decided to make some models at home and bring them into show. We have been writing about “Aliens in underpants” and investigating different materials for astronauts space suits.
Tuesday saw all three reception classes having a PE, ICT and a Music lesson, all classes really enjoyed it and are looking forward to next Tuesday.
