Rec P 2022 - 2023
Welcome to Reception!
Welcome back to another busy and fun filled half term, we hope you hope you had a lovely break, making lots of memories together as a family and are ready for another exciting half term in Reception!
We will begin this half term by exploring all things autumn! Our first story ‘The Leaf Thief’ explains the changes that occur in autumn, we will also begin to recognise the changes in our own outdoor area as well collecting autumnal objects to make wreaths and use in transient art activities. Our learning will then move onto animals, looking at nocturnal animals in ‘Owl Babies’ and our non-fiction text ‘Night Animals’, before moving onto ‘Monkey Puzzle’. The children will be having lots of fun making animals using playdough, creating their own fact files and matching young animals with their habitats.
In Maths we will continue to develop our number recognition and counting skills, learn key vocabulary related to capacity and size and also begin to describe the properties of shapes. We will also revisit addition and subtraction, with some fun practical games in our outdoor area to help us!
This half term our RE topic is Special Times, this will include discussing our own special memories, the feeling associated with the memory, Jesus’ special times and thinking about why it is important to celebrate special times.
The children are making great progress in phonics, they are beginning to recognise a range of letters and can recall the sound they make, some children are now beginning to blend the sounds to read some words! Please continue to encourage your child to read their book at home, we love listening to them read to us in school!
Our PE lessons will be on Mondays and Fridays, please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school and all earrings are removed.
Thank you for your continued support,
