Welcome to Reception!
Our topic this half term is ' Do you want to be friends?'
We will be exploring the importance of friendships with one another at school, being kind and helping each other.
We will also be learning new rules and routines in the classroom and begin to be independent learners!
We will be reading a variety of fiction and non fiction books and will start by reading Owl Babies and Lost and Found.
Following a settling in period,your child will take home a reading book and reading diary daily. We ask that you read with them regularly throughout the week and sign their reading diary. More information will follow shortly.
All children will visit the library and take home a book each week.
We will be learning to read write and order numbers up to 10 and will be learning lots of number songs to help us
We will also be investigating 2D shapes and repeating patterns.
As always in Reception we continue to make relationships, share with one another and have fun!!
We are looking forward to an exciting year at St Anthony's!
Please keep up to date with our blog where you will find out about all the fun we have been having, lots of photos and you may even find questions for your children to respond to!
