2019 - 2020

Hello and welcome to Reception’s Class page.

Our topic this half term is ‘Is everybody's home he same'? We are going to be writing about the homes of ourselves, our friends and the small creatures we find in and around our homes. The writing will be retells of what w remember; stories that talk about the homes of different people and creatures. It will also allow the children to write a non-fictional peice of writing including writing a set of instructions. During the peices of writing we would like to see the children adding lots of sounds into their writing in the correct places with some children adding capital letters and full stops. 

The children will be continuing their ‘Read Write Inc’ programme as part of their phonics work and we will be using ‘Fred the Frog’ to support us when learning new letters and their sounds. The children are in different groups with different Teachers for us all to get a chance to teach at each stage. The children have just been re-set again according to their abaility and it is great to see the children learning the letters and how to blend at such a speedy pace. Children will continue to take books for pleasure and sound blending books home. 

During our Maths sessions we are going to be consolidating our learning on 2 and 3D shape. Ensuring we can recognise all numbers to 20; add and take away using the correct number sentence and recognise different coins.

In Literacy, the children will be adding letters to their writing, getting used to writing on a line and being able to talk about what they have written. We are going to continue to add sounds in the right places and begin to add their tricky words into their writing. Please keep practising the spellings every night. 

Please feel free to send in any pictures on the email address above that the children have been doing over the half term or weekends. We share these with the class before adding them to your child's learning journey. I am so excited to hear about your half term fun!
