We have started to learn about winter. so far we have been learning facts about winter. We thought about what we wear, what the weather is like and what some animals do during winter. we have started to learn about some animals that live in the Arctic where it is winter all year round. We will be continuing this by using the film Happy Feet as the starter point for some writing. 


In maths we have been looking at time. We thought about times of the day, our daily routine and started to learn about the clock. We know the names of the different parts on the clock and know the o'clock times. 


We have been working hard on our key words this week but could do with a little more practice at home. The key words can be found on the newsletter each week as well as down the bottom the page. maybe you can play some games with them at home for example keyword hunt- write the keywords on post its/ paper and hide them round the house then ask the children to find a keyword. Bingo with keywords is another good game. Keywords are very important for the children to be able to make progress with reading and writing.  











Pinky and Gold have been very busy visiting lots of children. Pinky spent christmas with Mia, Goldy visited Max and Pinky is now off with Sienna. 


The children have been working hard recently so lots of star awards have been given out. Well done to Macy, Jessica and Benjamin. Mia received the Handwriting Hero. Esther and James received an MBE. Luca and Emma received an OBE. Well done everyone! 

Key Words which the Children will learn through the Reception Year.
