Welcome to Reception!
We hope you can visit the page lots during the year. We will be keeping it updated with photos of our learning, important letters for parents, as well as the 'Maths task of the week'. We look forward to seeing you here again soon.

Maths Task of the Week
This week we have been thinking about 2D (flat) and 3D (solid) shapes. Can you spot any of these shapes when out and about - try looking at road signs, food packages, household objects.
Shapes we have looked at: square, rectangle, circle, triangle, hexagon, octagon, cone, sphere, cube, cuboid, cylinder, pyramid
Every Thursday Reception class bake or cook and learn all about food. Please let us know if your child has any allergies or dietary requirements so we can plan accordingly.
Despite being so very tired (and with plenty of coughs and sniffles) we managed our first full week. All of the Reception staff are very, very proud of each and every child for this achievement and for the support of parents too. We are still awaiting the last few internet photo sharing permission slips, but hope to be posting photos online at the end of week 4. Don't forget we are off to the church on Wednesday for our first ever Harvest at Kingham Church. How exciting!
This week the fun continued and we mastered lots of new skills, activities and adventures. This week we:
- Have stayed for lunch and enjoyed every meal
- Visited the forest for a play
- Met and made friends with our Year 6 buddies
- Joined the rest of the school for playtime and lunchtimes
- Talked about our families
- Counted bears, jumps, claps and objects
- Started our phonics learning
- Explored the musical instruments
- Made some class rules as a team
Next week we will be spending the whole day in school. Miss Jenkinson would love to start sharing some photos of our adventures on this page so if you haven't sent the internet consent form back in please do so soon....you'll love seeing what we've been up to!
My goodness what a busy week we have had. Here are examples of just some of the things we have been up to...
But above all else - we have been stars and have settled so beautifully. I wonder what adventures we will go on over the next few weeks?!
