Welcome to our Reception class page!
Our topic for the Summer Term is 'Under the Sea' where we will be looking at different stories and adventures to support our writing. In Literacy we will be looking at Pirates and Mermaids. We will be creating our own pirates and creating our own treasure maps to go on a treasure hunt. We will be looking at Pirate stories and 'The Little Mermaid' to support our writing. During the second half of term we will be looking at 'Under the Sea' and the beach.
In Maths we will be looking at money, time, sequencing events, doubling and halving.
As the weather is hopefully turning warmer, we will be focusing a lot on Understanding of the World where we will be planting our own sunflowers and herbs as well as observing the seasonal changes and animals.
In Expressive Art and Design, we will be painting our own pirates and mermaids as well as creating our own sea creatures.
Our PE lessons are Mondays and Wednesdays. Children need to have full PE kits with trainers. Earrings must be removed before they come in to school on these days 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.
