Dino Day in Reception!

We had a great day today celebrating all things dinosaur! Thank you for providing fantastic costumes. The children had a wonderful time and it really got them in the spirit!
We did some wonderful Dino Addition, completing the challenges and finding the numbers. We read a story called the Hideasaurus and then brought this to life with our very own Dino hide and seek in forest schools. Look carefully as some children were exceptionally good at camouflage 🌱 🦖.  We then completed some fun activities, such as cutting and creating our dinosaur skeletons. Please have a look at the pictures, but try not to be too scared…


Reception Dino Day

We were all a bit scared this morning when our classroom was taken over by Dinosaurs and Cave People. Thank you so much for providing the fantastic costumes, all the children looked brilliant. We have been having lots of fun solving the dinosaur addition hunt, reading a counting story called ‘ Hide-o-saurus’ , playing dinosaur hide and seek at Forest School and taking part in dinosaur crafts. We had a totally Roar-some day.

Bug Club Online

Hello Reception,

To continue with supporting reading at home as best we can, school has recently invested in a new online reading system called ‘Bug Club’. Your child will be familiar with some of these resources already as we have Bug Club reading books we use in school and also use some of their online resources in our phonics sessions.

We are now able to offer out individual logins to Bug Club online for you to access at home. This will include a whole bank of online reading books that you can access at home! We are able to set books specifically for your child’s reading level, just as we would when we send real books home for you to read in the week! These books will be matched to the phonics that your child will be learning at school and also include fun activities or quizzes that will help develop your child’s understanding of what they have read.

We have stuck your child’s individual log in for their Bug Club membership in their reading diaries today so you can start using straight away! Attached is a letter with details and instructions of how to log on and start using the website. We will continue to send home a hard copy of a reading book each week as we really do value real life books and promote a love of reading! However, as we are limited at the moment in being able to exchange books as regularly as we would normally, these colourful, decodable books will help your child keep reading a minimum of 3x a week with you and ensure they stay on track.

We hope you will find these fun and exciting! Any questions, please do ask. Have fun reading together.

Thank you for your support.

The Reception Team.
