Reception: Miss G Love


Happy Easter Everyone!


We are starting a lovely new term 'Summer 1' on Tuesday 23rd April. This is a 5 week term so we have lots of lovely learning to fit into that time. Busy bees!


Our new topic is 'AMAZING ANIMALS'. We will explore the following animals over the coming weeks:


Week 1- Farm Animals

Week 2- Under the Sea

Week 3- Zoo animals

Week 4- Jungle animals

Week 5- Extinct and Imaginary Animals


In Literacy- we will be sequencing stories, learning about rhyming words and practicing writing words and sentences each day. 


In Math's- we will use our topic to engage in some problem solving, exploring patterns and measuring. 


In topic lessons in the afternoons- we will explore the different environments that animals live and grow in and how these are similar or different. 


Our curriculum morning on Wednesday 24th April will focus on Phonics and Reading. The 20 minutes will be exploring phonics and reading in school and the rest of the time will be for parents and children to engage in a variety of games and activities to support learning in Literacy. 

This term we are learning all about Space in our topic 'Out Of This World'. 

We will be learning to write in a variety of ways including; labelling, list writing, postcards and letters. 

In Maths we will be learning how to count on and back, find one more and one less and begin some addition. 

Our new topic will enable us to explore Space and the Solar system through fiction and non fiction, videos, pictures, role-play and art and technology. 


Please read the news letter to keep up to date with events taking place in school and celebrations of the children's work and attitude through star of the week. 


Please remember to read with your child at home for 5 minutes each night and practise their tricky and high frequency words. This will give them the best foundation for reading and writing.
