Welcome to Reception


Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a lovely Easter Break and are ready for this busy half term.

During this half term we will be learning about Growth and Change. We are going to be discussing about how we as humans change and grow as well as animals such as ducks, caterpillars and chicks. Through our topic of Growth and Change we will be working in our continuous provision, developing skills across our curriculum.

In Maths, we are going to be continuing developing our number sense beyond 10, our counting skills both forwards and backwards (to 20) and using our mathematical vocabulary. We will also continue exploring numbers beyond 10 as well as developing our understanding of addition and subtraction.

In Literacy, we are focusing on our reading skills this half term and continuing to learn phonics daily. We will be visiting more characters in our magical story world each day and are starting off with Traditional Tales. We will continue using our imagination to support children in speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Don’t forget;

Read and sign your reading record every night- books will be changed Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Don’t forget to practice your green and red words that are sent home weekly.

Don’t forget to keep accessing the range of websites we provided over lockdown such as Topmarks (Maths) and Phonics play (Literacy) at home too!
