We are very lucky again this year to have the coaches from the Amber Valley School Sports Partnership with us, as well as from Soccerstars.
In addition to the sports after-school clubs, staff members throughout the year will be providing a range of non-sporting activities after school. Mrs Phillips (our after-school clubs co-ordinator) will add to the calendar as new clubs are made available.
Reception's Phonic Club
We loved using the parachute to play letter popcorn. We used the blends on the balls to create new words as we added them to the sounds written on the floor. We had great fun reading some of the silly words we made.
We used magic paint to reveal invisible words which we then read to our group.
We were very good at reading and following the instructions to plant our own beans. We then took them home with a diary to complete with our grown ups.
We collected letter sounds from around the playground and wrote them on our clipboard. We then added the letters to our 'at' wheels to create a new word to read such as cat, bat, sat etc. We repeated this with 'ig' wheels at home.
We ran around and collected coins that were hiding outside before reading the words on them. We each had our own treasure box and bin and had to decide if the coins were treasure and had a real word on them or rubbish words that went in the bin.
