Reception - Miss Freeman

Library


Today we went to the library for our first session. Some of us went on the computers whilst some of us read some books! We found it tricky to use the mouse on the computer but we all had a good go and eventually got the hang of it!

Feelings

Today during circle time we were using Jigsaw Jenie to talk about our feelings. We focussed on happy and what made us happy, here are some examples of what the children said!

"I feel happy when my mummy cuddles me!"

"I feel happy when I give my baby sister kisses!"

"I feel happy when daddy kisses me!"

"I feel happy when I go to parties with my family!"

"I feel happy when I have apples!"

First Week!

We have had an excellent first week of school! All of the children have settled well and are enjoying exploring their new classroom! This week the children have been showing off their number skills and talking about some shapes they know. The children have also been looking at spelling their name and learning the correct formation of the letters in their name! We have learnt two sounds this week s, and a!

Welcome!

Welcome to all of our new children and parents starting at Kingsley Primary this September! This is our class page which is updated frequently and includes pictures about what we've been up to in class so you can stay informed! School starts at 8:50 and we look forward to seeing you all on your start dates this week!

Butterflies

We have been very lucky to have raised some butterflies in our classroom but sadly we needed to release them back into their habitat today! It was fantastic to see them spread their wings and fly high into the sky!
