Reception - Kinder



Kinder Class have had a fantastic final week of the half term. We have been finishing our Jungle topic off with lots of monkeying around. We have made monkeys by cutting and sticking as well as painting with our hands. We have also been doing monkey maths finding the missing monkeys. All this and lots of monkey and ape books too. On Thursday we had lots of fun making pancakes for which we wrote instructions. We also designed our own pancakes on the computer. As you can see the real things look yummy.


After half term we have a bit of a mix of topics so please look at the planning on the curriculum page. In a slight change for Week One we'll be doing lots of activities related to the books the class brought in on the last day. This will help us celebrate book week. Please could your child bring this book back for the week so we can share them again. Plus don't forget the fancy dress day that week. On the Thursday the whole school will be celebrating books by getting into mixed age groups and doing activities based around one classic book (yet to be revealed).


Our cup winner this week is Oliver. He is such a clever learner and a very kind member of Kinder Class. His kindness helps make our school a happy place to be. Our reader of the week is Tyler. He is doing brilliantly with his reading and practises all the time at home. This is really helping him to become a confident reader. Well done both of you. Finally Kinder Class won the attendance award again this week. Great work.


Have a lovely, restful holiday from Mr Chuck and Mrs Williams.

Kinder Class have loved learning about snakes and frogs this week. We have made paper plate snakes, done lots of colouring, made snake patterns, a congratulations card for Miss Derbyshire and much, much more. On Wednesday we went to the park and told show and tells of special things we found. We have also enjoyed finding ice on our outdoor area which often formed fantastic shapes. On Friday we performed in front of the school singing our song 'The Little Green Frog'. 


Our pupil of the week is Ibadah. She has done brilliantly to settle into our school half way through the year. She has made lots of friends and is always enthusiastic about her learning. Alice is our reader of the week. She's doing so well in reading and constantly impresses the teachers with her effort. Well done!


Next week we are learning about apes and monkeys. Have a lovely weekend from Mr Chuck and Mrs Williams.



Kinder Class have had a fun week learning about crocodiles. We have been doing crocodile adding, card writing, book reviews and wanted posters for Craig our naughty class crocodile. There have been crocodiles swimming around our playground all week so we have been building stepping stones to avoid them and adding more crocs with paint. William K also shared some real croc pictures with the class during a show and tell. On Friday we learnt about keeping our teeth healthy by sorting healthy and treat foods. 


Our award winners this week are Taylor and William K. Taylor won the class cup for his enthusiasm for learning. He really loves school and is a lovely member of Kinder Class. William won our reading award. He is a superstar reader who is flying through his books! Well done both of you. We also welcomed our new friend Ibadah this week. All the class made her feel very welcome.


Next week our topic is jungle snakes and frogs. Have a lovely weekend from Mr Chuck and Mrs Williams.



Kinder Class have really enjoyed learning about Elmer the Elephant this week. We have talked and written about what makes us special, painted Elmer pictures and performed our own Elmer plays. Our cup winner this week is William H for always being a confident, enthusiastic learner. Our reader of the week is Ava who always reads beautifully. We also won the school attendence award for the second week running!


Next week we are learning all about crocodiles. One of our books is the Selfish Crocodile about a croc with toothache. So we'll also learn about keeping our teeth clean. Have a lovey weekend from Mr Chuck and Mrs Williams.

Kinder Class have had a fun week in school. We have been doing lots of activities based on The Tiger Who Came to Tea. We have been tiger painting, reading tiger fiction and non-fiction, making play-doh buns for our friends, having tea parties, decorating biscuits (in quarters) and practising our hockey skills for PE. In phonics we have been writing sounds on the playground and then jumping to blend them together into words.


Next week we'll be learning about Elmer the Elephant. This will give us lots of opportunities to discuss why we are all special and unique. Have a lovely weekend from Mr Chuck and Mrs Williams.


In Kinder Class this week we have been thinking all about the Jungle. We have found a letter from Rosy (a tree who has lived in the Jungle for over 100 years!) and woodcutters are trying to cut her down! We also got some letters off animals who use Rosy for different things. Children have chosen animals to write about and explained why their chosen animal needs Rosy. In Maths we have been thinking about sharing which the children have been working really hard on, even understanding that sometimes we have remainders that we cannot share.


From next week Mr Chuck will be teaching in Reception. The children have already developed very good relationships with him and they are going to have a great year with him! Please feel free to speak to Mr Chuck to say hello or you have any issues that you wish to discuss, he will always be available after school. Next week we'll be learning about the classic book 'The Tiger Who Came to Tea'.


Have a fantastic year and I will see you again in October.
