Welcome to Reception!

Welcome back Reception! 

I hope you've all had a wonderful half term. Welcome back to our final half term in Reception - where has that year gone? We're going to make sure we have as much fun as possible this half term and continue to make those happy memories whilst learning and reaching our full potential. 

Our topic this half term is - Pirates and Mermaids and The Kindness Elves. 

We will be exploring different stories related to pirates and mermaids and exploring what happens under the sea.

We will even learn some pirate phrases and may even stumble across a treasure map or messages in a bottle! 

This half term we will develop our sentence construction and sentence writing as well as continuing to focus on phase 3 phonics. We will be writing messages of kindness and letters too!  

In our maths sessions we will be using treasure to help us learn how to subtract and share. We will also be learning how to double numbers and halve shapes. 

We may even have some special elf visitors and take on some special kindness missions. 

As always we will take our learning outdoors developing our speaking, imagination PSED, physical development skills. 

Once again if you have any symptoms of COVID 19 please follow the guidance. If you have to self - isolate and are well work will be provided via the webpage.

Stay safe and take care.

 We once again thank you for your support and cooperation during these uncertain times.
