Welcome to Reception!

Chestnut Class


Our topic next half term is Festivals and Celebrations!

This week we will be learning about Thanksgiving.

Our teacher is Miss Loades.

Our teaching assistant is Mrs Patel.

Our LSA is Mrs Kenlay.

This week, we have been learning about Remembrance Day. We wrote sentences to describe the poppies that we wear to remember the soldiers. 

We made our own poppies.

Chestnut class have learnt how to draw a person this week. They have learnt to name parts of the body through songs and interactive games.

For homework, the children will bring home a blue phonics book. Inside will be the sounds we have learnt this week. Please encourage your child to practise the sounds and talk about words that begin with these sounds. They can draw or stick pictures of words that begin with these sounds. Please support your child to practise writing the sounds. ( 4 new sounds every week)
