Welcome to Reception

Welcome back to school! We hope you all had a wonderful Easter break. We have loved hearing all about your Easter and how many eggs were left by the Easter bunny. All the children had worked so hard last term and we are excited for the term ahead.

Let’s get growing this half term! We are going to be looking at how we have grown since being a baby and looking back at pictures of ourselves and discussing how much we have grown and changed. Throughout the term, we will also be looking at how plants and animals grow and will even be getting a precious delivery to look after in class. How egg-citing!!! This will lead onto us learning all about different life-cycles. We will also be discussing how to keep our bodies healthy through our Well – Being Thursday sessions.

In Maths, we will continue to develop our understanding of numbers within 10 by lots of fun, practical activities to compose numbers as well as combining numbers to make addition number sentences. We will begin our learning of subtraction too. Later in the term, we will be revisiting our learning of both 2D and 3D shapes and develop our spatial reasoning skills. At home, you could practice your spatial reasoning skills further by completing some jigsaws.

In Literacy, we will be continuing to work hard each day in our daily phonics session and applying our phonic knowledge to our reading and writing in class. Please continue to use our Dojo app to consolidate your child’s learning, with updated sounds which the children are working on. We will continue developing our Speaking and Listening skills through our narrative by making predictions, learning new vocabulary daily and working on our inference skills. Reading at home is vital and the best support you can give your child at this vital time of learning. Sharing stories as well as having a story time at bedtime will support your child into becoming a confident reader and to have a love for books.

We will also be continuing to develop our independence of getting changed and dressed into our P.E kits. Don’t forget- if you have a P.E pumps at home, please bring them in and children can leave them in their locker. At home, you could encourage your child to get dressed for school more independently too!

Don’t forget-

  • Read every night- books will be changed each Friday.
  • Please bring in your book bags every Thursday.
  • Remember to check Dojo and Seesaw regularly.
  • P.E is every Thursday.
