Dragons, your home work this week is to play lots, rest lots and play outside.
It would be super if you could run through your tag sounds, picking out and learning to recognise and write the ones you find tricky.
Don't forget that as well as the ones in your book bag there are lots of books on Bug Club. Sharing books, listening to and talking about stories is just as important.
Play games, card games, dice games, board games. Take turns and have fun!
Work those funky fingers by playing with Lego, playdough, cutting and sticking, cooking and baking.
Be creative, imaginative and practise your yoga moves, Cosmic Kids Yoga on YouTube is always there if you need inspiration and a cool story to move to.

Things to get on with at home:

  • Read Daily - don't forget there is a wonderful supply of books linked to our phonics scheme on Bug Club.
  • Bug Club Games
  • Run through tag sounds and tricky words.
  • Write a letter, shopping list, instructions on how to make a jam sandwich.
  • Maths Passport
  • Puzzles and Jigsaw
  • Board games, card games and dice games.
  • Painting and Drawing
  • Make play dough.
  • Junk Modelling
  • Play in the garden, go on a bug hunt.
  • Cosmic Kids Yoga on YouTube

Welcome to Dragons!

Hello! I am Rachel Morris the class teacher in Dragons - a wonderful class of twenty reception children. I am lucky to be supported every day by Vicki Millichamp and Sonja Hindle.

For the reception children our day flows with a balance between child-initiated and adult-led teaching. We tend to do more structured learning in the morning and use the afternoons to explore our world and take new learning into our play. We have daily literacy, maths, funky finger and phonics sessions.

We have a 'whatever the weather' philosophy and spend a great deal of time making the most of our beautiful outdoor classroom. Our children are encouraged to move between the two environments and independently change from their slippers into waterproof trousers, wellies and coats. The mud kitchen, as you can imagine is very messy and extremely popular. We are currently developing our Forest School area and spend alot of time learning through play in the woods. 

Please look at our celebration book to find out what we have been up to each week.
