2018 - 2019 - Spring

Hello and welcome back to Reception’s Class page. Spring!! My favourite time of year! Reception are going to have a brilliant time when they come back to class in our Garden Centre - all ready for them to dig in, plant seeds, grow plants and use the till to buy and sell products! Our topic this half term is ‘Is everybody's home the same?' We will be looking at the homes of lots of different animals and mini-beasts and will be going on our school trip this term with Nursery to Blackpool Zoo! This is a great way for the children to see the homes of different animals up close and personal! We will go onto looking at the different mini-beasts we find in our garden at this time of year and what we can do to look after them and their homes. Reception will be getting butterflies to look after again and hopefully chicks within the unit to have a look at how we look after different animals when they are in our care.
We are going to be getting very creative as always and using our afternoons to focus on our Music, Art and 'Understanding of the World' and investigating different properties of materials, using colours and materials for certain purposes and celebrating different festivals such as Easter, Shrove Tuesday and St George’s Day! The children are well under way with their ‘Letters and Sounds’ work and are now working their way through phase 3 with lots of repetition of the 2 letters making 1 sound; how we blend these sounds in our words and adding these sounds to our writing.
During our Maths sessions we are going to be securing our knowledge of number – making sure we can recognise all numbers to 20. The children will know how to use the +/- and = sign confidently and start to look at coins – making different amounts and recognising different coins.
In Literacy, the children will be adding sounds in the right places, decoding words so they can spell what they can hear and adding their tricky words into their writing. Lots of us now are adding finger spaces and full stops to our writing, we will start to look at capital letters and why they need to come at the beginning of our sentences. Some children I want to start getting them to write more sentences and build up their resilience to writing.
I am so excited to see you all again and hear about the fantastic time you have all had with your families!
