In Reception, one of our topics this term is ‘People Who Help Us’.
We asked our children to tell us who they think helps us. Reception named Police, Nurses, Doctors, Postmen, Firemen, Dentists, Opticians, Lollipop Lady and Librarians as people they thought helped us. Then we asked the children to choose one of the above to write a sentence on what they do to help us.
Reception went to the writing table. Capital letters, full stops, finger spaces were used as well as using their blending and segmenting skills to write their words. We watched beautiful letter join formation and they really thought about what they wanted to write. All we can say is AMAZING! Their eagerness to give writing a try is a joy to witness.
