A very warm welcome to Wren Class
Reception class 2023
We would like to welcome our newest Wrens to Pen Mill School. The children are settling into the routines well and are enjoying exploring all of their new areas. Phonics teaching has already begun with Phase 1 and the children are keen to show off their new skills. The children are looking forward to their first PE session with Mr Shire and wearing their Welly Boots for Forest School. Topic webs have been sent home with the children to keep you updated with their learning journey. Please ensure that you can log into Tapestry so that your can share your child's learning with them.
As always if you need any help with anything please come and see Mrs Cundy/Miss Foster or a member of the team we will
The children have had a fantastic start to the year 2024. They have learnt about how people celebrate new year and thought about their own new year’s resolutions. We have also found out about Chinese New Year. The children took part in some races to show the order that the animals finished the race in just like in the Chinese zodiac story.
The children are developing a good understanding of numbers to 5 and are finding out about the vocabulary ‘more than’, ‘fewer than’ and ‘equal to’.
The children have learnt about keeping themselves safe. They know how to keep themselves safe in the classroom, at home, in the garden and in the park. They have looked for possible dangers within each environment through pictures. They have helped Harold the Giraffe to keep safe too by reminding him to ensure he stays away from medicines and cleaning products.
The children have enjoyed our Superhero topic; especially making superhero masks and potions during forest school. We have based their writing on superhero themed books and they are remembering to use their sounds and the correct letter formations in their work.
The progress the children are making is fantastic.
Thank you for all your support with your child’s reading and letter formation. You make a big difference to the progress they make.
We will be looking closely at the following texts:
The Little Red Hen
Little Red Riding Hood
Jack and the Beanstalk
