We are taught by Miss Curnow and are very lucky to have 3 wonderful classroom assistants to support our learning and help us through our journey of reception and year. Our classroom assistants are: Miss Bellis, Miss Over and Mrs Forde.
We have PE on a Monday morning joined by the Go Active team so please remember your PE kits on a Monday morning. You are welcome to send your child in wearing PE kit and bring their school uniform into school in a bag to change into after to save changing time.
Reception children will come home with a reading book, Sound book of our daily sound and Tricky words book each day. We encourage you to look at the sounds and words on a daily basis please and remind you to write in their reading record so we can see who has read at home to change the book. Homework is not compulsory but I have included some fun activities for all the family in your topic letter.
We look forward to sharing our learning with you and will keep you updated of our adventures in Kynsa class!
Week beginning 1st October
Our new starters in Kynsa are really starting to settle in now and have been exploring provision both inside and outside of the classroom. Kynsa have been working hard to fill number buckets outside with matching amounts of objects and then, with the help of our busy year 1's, re-order the buckets into a number line from 1-20! In literacy the children have been getting their bossy hats on like Little Miss Bossy to learn about 'bossy verbs'. Kynsa have used their bossy verbs to write a set of instructions on how to build a house. Keep an eye on this page for photos of Kynsa enjoying their new outdoor area!
Week beginning 10th September 2018
What a busy but exciting first week we've had in Kynsa class!
We have got stuck into our first topic House and Homes this week. In English we started reading the story The 3 Little Pigs and acting out the story through role play with masks. Throughout the week we added to our Story Map and have started practising how to retell the story with actions. In maths we've been looking at the numbers 1-10 (and up to 20 if we're feeling whizzy!) and matching the numbers to Numicon and objects. We made a number line on the carpet and asked lots of curious questions. Well done to our Year 1s for being such great role models for our new children and a big congratulations on your first week Reception children!
