Welcome to our new Reception class!
Our topic for the Spring Term is 'Twisted Tales' where we will be exploring a range of traditional Fairy Tales as well as ones with a twist. The three main Fairy Tales we will be exploring in our Literacy lessons are; Sleeping Beauty, The Three Little Pigs and The Gingerbread Man.
Every Thursday afternoon we will be joining Years 1 and 2 for topic afternoons relating to Fairy Tales, some of these activities will include; making gingerbread, making our own shields and building our own houses out of straw, brick and wood. This will be a great opportunity for the children to mix with their peers in other year groups.
In Maths we will be continuing to look at numbers as well as looking at 3D shape and capacity.
Our PE lessons are Mondays and Wednesdays. Children need to have full PE kits with trainers with the option of trousers, as the weather gets colder. Earrings must be removed for our sessions and long hair must be tied back for safety.
We ask if you could read with your child at home on a daily basis and record it in their reading diary to support their learning. The children also have an exciting opportunity to collect certificates in our reading challenge which is carried out throughout the school.
We look forward to an exciting year ahead!
Miss Martin, Mrs Wood, Miss Pettifer and Mrs Hatherall.
