Focus on Reception class

This week we have been continuing to work hard on our phonics, using our skills to work on reading and in particular focusing on writing. We have been working on our letter formation and also thinking about the size of our letters. Which letters are tall, which are small and which are dangly. This helps us make our writing recognisable and clearer, we are even doing our best to write on lines too. The Hedgehogs have been working very hard on this and have been making super progress, especially when we think back to what we could do in September!


We have been continuing to practise our Nativity songs and have finally finished our filming. The hedgehogs have especially enjoyed recording the narration this week and we can’t wait to share it with our loved ones.

We have had the chance to also learn about advent this week and we are all very excited for Christmas…another 2 weeks of school first, Hedgehogs! We really enjoyed learning about advent from the Christian point of view, thinking about hope, peace, love and joy and making our own crafty advent crowns.
