13.09.19 What a busy week...!

Well done to ALL of the Reception children who have settled into life at Sandy Hill so well and so quickly. The children have taken all of the new routines and experiences in their stride!
We have been talking about ourselves and what makes us all special. We have started to talk about our homes and who we live with including any pets that we might have. This linked nicely when we talked about having our own class pet. On Friday Pets at Home visited us at school and explained how to look after a pet fish including all of the things that we would need to get. Miss Polmounter set the tank up in the class ready for the fish she is going to bring in on Monday.
Next week we are linking our discussions about our houses and homes to the story of 'The Three Little Pigs'. Watch this space...
This week we have been learning the sounds 's', 'a', 't' and 'p' during our daily phonics sessions. During our sessions we have been singing the songs, thinking of words that contain the sound and learning how to form each letter correctly using a multi- sensory approach.
