*Welcome to Reception*

Welcome Back!

A huge welcome back to all of our families this half term - Happy New Year!

We look forward to continuing to make fabulous progress in Reception class this year. 

Our topic this half term is - 

Did they live happily ever after?


 This half term, we will be exploring a number of traditional and fairytales.

We will learn how to retell stories, develop our story telling language and begin creating simple story maps. 

Spring One Newsletter

 We will learn how to sequence familiar stories and write simple sentences. We will retell simple stories through small world and role play developing our vocabulary and story telling language. 

During our maths sessions we will be exploring numbers to 10. We will learn how to count, subitise and develop our knowledge of the composition of numbers. 

Please continue to practice number bonds to 5 at home. 

During our PE sessions we will be working with a dance coach to learn a sequence of moves and eventually a short routine which we will perform to the whole school. 

As always we will be working together to develop our PSED skills, sharing, turn taking and taking care of one another. We will also embed our class virtue - Kindness.

Again outdoor learning will be at the centre of our curriculum where we will continue to explore and build upon our imagination, gross and fine motor, oracy, number and PSED skills. Alongside developing a love for the outdoors and getting to know and understand the world in which we live.  

Please ensure you read with your child as often as possible. Reading books are sent home weekly and should be returned on your allocated day. Please keep reading books in book bags and ensure they are signed, 

Please download the Tapestry app and make sure you have registered to receive updates on your child's progress.
