Welcome to Reception

Reception have enjoyed making new friends and taking part in lots of exciting new activities; including making biscuits, designing and making healthy fruit kebabs, role-playing with friends, reading stories, going on Autumn walks and lots more!

 

We have been learning how to match numbers to quantity and recognise numbers to 10 and beyond.

We have learnt lots of new sounds and are trying really hard to use these sounds to write words, captions and simple sentences independently.

Welcome back to the Summer Term in Reception!

 

We hope you had a lovely half term break.

We cannot believe we are already in the last half term of the school year!

This half term we are going to be learning more about a variety of topics.

We are celebrating the school’s 50th Birthday and learning a little about the different decades of our school.

Each class will be home to some special visitors ...our class caterpillars!

We will be watching them change and grow and we will be talking and writing about what we observe over the next few weeks.

                   

 

We will be reading and retelling the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

We may also write our own version of the story!

                                               

   

We will be investigating and learning more about other minibeasts and hunting for them in the school grounds!

We will talk about what we can see and look for similarities and difference between the minibeasts we find.

                                                                                      

 

We will also be thinking about The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s diet and talking about healthy foods that we can enjoy.

As we come to the end of our year in Reception we will also be talking about the move up to Year1.

As well as all these exciting topics we will continue with our reading, writing and number activities!

Please feel free to speak to a member of staff if you have any questions.

We will be revising all the letters and sounds we have learnt and will continue to use these in our reading and writing. We will also continue to read and write ‘tricky’ words and two syllable words.

In our maths sessions we will continue to use our number skills to solve mathematical problems involving halving and doubling and sharing. We will be continuing to make links between numbers and number patterns . We will also be learning more about estimating and learning how to solve problems that involve counting in 2s 5s and 10s!

We are looking forward to a short but very busy half term!

Welcome back to the Spring Term in Reception!

We hope you all had a lovely half term break. We enjoyed meeting with you at the end of last half term to share the children’s learning and progress with you.

During the beginning of this half term we will be basing our learning around four popular books:

The Little Red Hen, Handa’s Surprise, The Gingerbread Man and The Enormous Turnip. 

                                                       

The children with have the opportunity to make their own loaf of bread, design their own fruit skewers and decorate their very own gingerbread man!

They will also be writing a retell of one of the stories, a list of ingredients and instructions.

We will be revising all the letters and sounds we have learnt and will continue to use these in our reading and writing. We will also continue to read and write ‘tricky’ words.

 

In our maths sessions we will be using our number skills to solve mathematical problems involving halving and doubling. We will be learning to make links between numbers and number patterns and focusing on ’teen’ numbers and ordering numbers to 20.

 

We will also be preparing for Mother’s Day and Easter by making special cards to bring home!

During the last week of this half term we will be writing our very own version of The Enormous Turnip!

                                                                                      

 

We are looking forward to another busy and enjoyable half term with your children. Please feel free to speak to a member of staff if you have any questions.

 

Welcome to the Spring Term in Reception!

This half term we are going to be learning all about different kinds of bears.

We will be meeting Mrs Walklett’s teddy bear and making our own brand new bear during a visit to the Bear Factory. Our new teddy bear will be taking turns to visit us at home next half term.

 

We will be talking and writing about Goldilocks and her visit to the three bear’s cottage. We are going to make porridge and design and make a new chair for Baby Bear!

 

We will also be learning about different wild bears. We will go on our own bear hunt in the outdoor classroom and write about it too.

The children will be using ICT in their learning. For example, we will use ipads to record our own performances of the Goldilocks story and take photos of our trip to the Bear Factory

We will also continue to learn new sounds in our phonics lessons and continue to use these in our reading and writing activities every day!

In our maths sessions we will continue to develop our skills when adding and subtracting numbers and learn how to halve and share amounts. We will be holding our math workshops this half term too.

We are looking forward to sharing the children’s work and progress with you at the end of this half term!
