Welcome To Reception Class

Summer Term.

Welcome to Reception

We are taught by Mrs Lamb and our teaching assistants are Mrs Edge, Mrs Allen and Mrs Sperring. We are a very happy and enthusiastic class. We really enjoy designing and making and expressing ourselves through lots of different activities, we love to construct and enjoy role play activities.

We learn through the Foundation Stage curriculum. All our teachers listen to us and enjoy finding out what we are interested in. Then they plan lots of exciting experiences and activities for us based on the things that we like, helping us to learn whilst we are playing.

Through out our time in reception we are learning to be self-confident and independent. We are keen to ask for things that we need help with but aren't afraid to give new and exciting challenges a try. We have made lots of new friends and are are able to follow our school rules. We always try our best to listen really carefully.

Our parents are really involved in our learning. They read with us every night. They can even add to our learning journey themselves so that our teachers can see all of the great learning that goes on at home! We invite them in each term to share our new learning.

We are creative and inquisitive learners and are enjoying the start to our journey through school, always with a smile.

We are staring our half term with a topic all about Journeys and New Life. We will be focusing all our work around the book ‘The Journey Home’. The children will start the topic with a suitcase filled with clues related to the text. They will make predictions about who the suitcase belongs to. The children will find out about creatures that hatch from eggs and label them. The children will be making their own hatchling egg and will be writing instructions on how they made it. They will be thinking about the main character Hattie Peck and will be thinking of words to describe her personality and her appearance. The children will spend time reflecting on happy moments and big days out and will be writing about them. They will be thinking about birthday parties and what they would need. The children will also be packing a suitcase to go on their own adventure, thinking about where they are going and what they would need.

In maths we will be focusing on numbers, looking at ordering numbers and practising counting accurately. We will also be looking at addition, subtraction, using a number line to support them. We will look at doubling, halving and sharing, as well as 3D shape and time.

As usual the children will lead the planning and we will follow their interests, ensuring that specific learning objectives are covered. If your child has a specific interest then please let me know, as I will then ensure that this is fed into our planning. It is really important that children are engaged and motivated so their interests really do matter.

Please come back soon!
