In year R

Exploring the story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ has been so much fun!

In English we created story maps, to help us learn the story and the different characters. We then created instructions for Goldilocks to make her own porridge. In maths, we explored number recognition up to 10, using counting bears, we made sure to count the bears carefully one by one.

Porridge making was great fun! Following instructions we created yummy porridge, it was super tasty. A picture has been put in our learning journeys for our family to enjoy.

We have now started learning our Phase 2 sounds, each sound has an action and we look forward to teaching all our parents on Friday in the ‘Phonics Workshop’.

Next week, more bears, but this time “We’re going on a bear hunt”


“First full week of full time school complete and we have had an amazing time! This week we have been focusing on rules and routines. We have all adjusted brilliantly and got to learn the school day. We all have enjoyed rotating around different ‘jobs’ in the morning, practising and learning new skills, and the afternoons have been full of fun in busy bee. We’ve learnt the routine of lunchtime and we are growing in confidence on the ‘big’ playground. We have continued to form good relationships with our teachers and our friends. We are beginning to understand our school behaviour chart and we have enjoyed moving our pegs up!

Thank you to our parents for providing us with all our PE kits, welly boots and spare clothes. Next week we look forward to exploring the story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’


We have all settled into Year R this week, getting to know our teachers and teaching assistants. We have explored our classroom, outside area, library and look forward to exploring the rest of the school.


In maths we have been investigating shape, number and showing our teachers what we know. In English we have enjoyed looking at different sounds and practising writing our names. We have all been given a Lilac reading book to practise our reading skills at home and in school. We have also been issued a library book to enjoy. We have all created a beautiful family portrait, which are now on display in our Art area. We enjoyed sharing our ‘All About Me’ box and all our lovely photos have been added to our learning journeys.


Thank you to our parents for attending the parent workshops and we look forward to being in full time next week.”
