Welcome back everybody! We hope you had a lovely Easter break.

 

We are very excited about all of the amazing activities that Summer will bring.

This half term we will be learning all about Bats, including the pipistrelle bat that is just coming out of hibernation and lives right here in Manchester. 

In Maths we will be getting ready for Year 1 and developing our problem solving skills. We will begin looking at number bonds to 10 and 20 before moving onto simple addition and subtraction. You can support your child by encouraging them to do lots of counting when you are out and about. How many leaves can you collect? How many would there be if the wind blew two away?

In phonics we will be using our letter sounds and diagraphs to write sentences and will be focusing on tricky words and high frequency words. You can learn our tricky words with your child by watching the Tricky Words songs together on YouTube  https://youtu.be/ri4u0TjAZ38

We will be continuing with our Guided Reading sessions and encouraging the children to use their magic finger to point to each word. You can help your child by sharing books with them at home on a regular basis.

 

Can you also make sure that your child has a bag of spare clothes on their peg. Please remember to put your child’s name in everything.

Also, please remember to keep an eye on the weather forecast. If hot weather is predicted then please make sure your child has sun protection and a hat. We will be spending lots of time exploring outside this term so our clothing will be important.

 

 

 

If you have any questions please just pop in and see us. We are always happy to help.

Thank you for your support.

Mrs Neil, Miss O’Toole and the Reception team.
