June 2019

Well, another month gone and less than a month to go this school year. It hardly seems a year ago that the children were visiting for their Learning Together sessions and now they're nearly Year One! Time flies, as they say.
 
June has been a packed month - as always!
 
The children have written fabulous stories about Goldilocks, but when she was grown up. The end of the normal story finished with a picture (see below) of her fighting a dragon and saying that she had many adventures. So we made up the story of how she got to be fighting the dragon and what happened to the treasure chest full of gold  by her feet. Some lovely ideas, vocabulary and above all writing.
 
In Maths we have been working hard on our number work with lots of addition and subtraction and using numbers in many ways including using money to buy things in our class shop. We have also been doing lots of counting including in 2s, 5s and 10s.
 
PE has been trying more Maypole Dancing. Sadly we never got to complete our routine due to the hall being out of use and practicing for Sports Day next month. But everyone thoroughly enjoyed what we did. Some final videos are below.
 
Road Safety Day tied in, serendipitously, with our class story The Hodgeheg, which is all about a young hedgehog trying to find safe places to cross the road. The children have a really good idea about how to do so safely - as a human!
 
We also had a PSHE session about behaviour in school and making good choices about how to treat all the resources and equipment we have in Reception as well as how to work with our friends in the class. (see picture below)
 
There will be more PSHE next week (see the next blog - the last month of this year!) and we will be reinforcing this plus talking about friendships and working together, being kind to everyone and who to talk to in school when we need support.
