Phonics in reception, 's' and 'a'

This week we started our phonics looking at 's' and 'a'. Today we played with the Alphabet Soup game, sorting out objects beginning with 's' and 'a'. We made an art table covered in sparkly 's' and 'a's. On our own, without help from an adult we decorated an a into an apple. We also played interactive games on the whiteboard sorting big letters from small ones (capitals from lowercase) and other fun games.

Welcome to Reception

A big 'Welcome' to all the children in Reception. It was nice to see the children all happy and smiling ready to start the new academic year. This week we have been concentrating on writing our name and making some displays for our room. We have also been trying to remember our numbers, making numbers from playdough and counting objects to match given numerals. We loved playing with the new Numicon resources which will help us with our understanding of mathematical concepts.

Here are some pictures from our first week.
