Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back. We hope you had a lovely half term with your children. We have had a busy week in Reception!


In Maths this week we have been learning about weight. We have been using the balance scales to weigh different objects and we have been using the language heavier and lighter. Whilst your child is playing with their toys at home, perhaps you could ask them to find 2 toys, one that is heavier and one that is lighter in weight.


The children have thoroughly enjoyed making hedgehog bread rolls. We used scales to weigh the flour, a teaspoon to measure the yeast and a tablespoon to measure the oil. You will find the recipe for the hedgehog bread rolls overleaf as you might want to make some at home.


In Literacy this week we have been reading the traditional story of The Little Red Hen. This story is very repetitive. When the children knew the story well they joined in with the repetitive parts of the story and we made up some actions to go with it.


This week we have also been learning about Bonfire Night. We found out information about Guy Fawkes, why people celebrate Bonfire Night and we watched a video about Bonfire safety. We also talked about the important job the fire service do and we watched a video of firefighters putting out a fire. We hope you have a exciting and safe Bonfire Night.


Now the weather is getting colder please make sure you send your child into school with a warm coat and ideally waterproof/showerproof. The children do have the opportunity to learn outside for long periods of time if they want to. Please also send your child in with a hat and gloves,   ensuring they are clearly named.


Thank you for your ongoing support
