Reception O

Welcome to Reception!

We can’t believe that our final term in Reception is already here. The children have made such amazing progress since Autumn Term and we cannot wait to see what they achieve over the Summer Term.

Please don’t forget to send a water bottle in for your child (water only please).

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.

We change our reading books every Friday so it is important that the children remember to bring their book bag to school each week. It will also really help your child with their reading by sharing a book with them every day.

We will send you information and key dates over Class Dojo so keep an eye out for our weekly posts. If you have any questions please just pop in and see us. We are always happy to help.

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

Summer Term 2022

Communication and Langauge Toggle

In phonics we will be applying our learned letter sounds to begin writing words and sentences. You can help your child develop their writing skills by encouraging them to help you write your shopping list!

Literacy Toggle

We will continue guided reading this term and we can’t wait to continue to see the amazing progress that the children make as independent readers.  We change our reading books every Friday so it is important that the children remember to bring their book bag to school each week. It will also really help your child with their reading by sharing a book with them every day.

Numeracy Toggle

In Maths we will be mastering our mathematical skills, deepening our understanding of numbers to 10, including the composition of each number.

Outdoor provision Toggle

During the first half of Summer Term, our topic is “Planting and Growing.” We will be taking advantage of the lovely weather and will be spending lots of time outdoors. We will be learning all about how tiny seeds can turn into yummy food that we find in the supermarkets. Our Talk 4 Writing text in Summer 1 will be The Enormous Turnip.

The second half of Summer Term will be “From field to plate” and our focus text is Farmer Duck. We will be learning all about animals and their young and learning about the day in the life of a farmer. We will build on these experiences to learn more about farming and we hope to visit a working farm as an enrichment activity.
