The Way The Truth & The Life

God’s Family

 

Creation is the first and universal revelation of God’s love … Each human person

 is made in God’s image …

 

This half term, the children in Reception classes will be learning about God’s Family. Throughout the topic, the children will be given opportunities to become aware that God made all the people in the world to be part of his family and that we are part of it too.

They will learn that God made us to know and love him, as well as to show our love for him by helping one another. They will find out that God has given us gifts so that we can show his love to others.

 

As Christmas approaches, they will learn that God’s greatest gift to us was to send his only son Jesus and learn how to respond to that gift.

At home

You could help your children by:

• reminding them that Christmas is about the gift of Jesus to us and not just about receiving presents.

• talk about your family and draw pictures of Jesus being part of your family

• take them to see baby Jesus at church during the Christmas season.

 

 

Phonics

We work hard every day in our phonic families, sounding out sounds and crashing them together. We can sound words out to help us spell them also. 

We always remember to use our pure sounds, not putting an 'uh' at the end of sounds (phonemes) e.g. 'mmm' not 'muh'

Some words are tricky and we just have to take a photo of them with our izzy wizzy camera eyes and remember them e.g. the, no.

We have finished phase 2 and have  just started phase 3. You can find which words and sounds are in these phases from websites such as 'Letters and Sounds' or 'Phonicsplay'. We  revise all the phonemes we have learned every day to help us to remember them. Playing phonics games and reading our guided reading books help us to do this.

There are lots of good websites and Apps that help us to learn our phonics:

Maths

We love numbers! Every day we count around the clock, finding 1 more than and 1 less than the numbers..

I need to make sure I know my numbers from 1 to 10 and can write them, (and even the numbers beyond that!).

We count to 100 every day and are beginning to count in 10's.

I need to check how to write my numbers, always starting at the top! There is a number mat to download that will help.

I can add objects together and can record this in different ways.
