Miss Kelly

Welcome to Reception!

Welcome back to another fun filled half term, we hope you hope you had a fantastic break, making lots of memories together and are ready for another exciting half term in Reception - INCLUDING OUR FIRST SCHOOL TRIP to Smithills Farm. Keep checking our website gallery for our photos!



This half term our topic is ‘Traditional Tales and farm animals', we will start by learning about farm animals by reading our bug club non-fiction book - On the Farm'. We will then move onto ‘The Gingerbread man’, ‘Egg to Chick’, 'The Little Red Hen' and finally 'Billy Goats Gruff'. We have some very exciting activities planned this half term, including making gingerbread men, using a range of materials to build bridges for the three goats and a very exciting delivery of eggs, we will watch them hatch and grow into chicks!

In Maths we will be learning one more and one less than, recap subtraction and explore number bonds to five and ten. We will also be counting sounds, actions and objects through our own St. Peter’s mini Olympics!


This half term our RE topic is Easter - we will be learning about Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. We will act out each event on our outdoor stage.
