Reception


This term our topic is ‘Celebrations and Festivals’. We will be talking about what and how people might celebrate during this half term.

In Maths we will be learning to recognise Numicon shapes and numbers from 1 to 10. The children will also be exploring numbers beyond 10 using the Numicon shapes. Parents or carers are expected to attend Numicon and Phonics workshops during this half term.

In Phonics we will be covering more of the Phase 2 sounds and applying these in reading and writing. You can support your child by downloading the Cursive Writing Wizard app on your tablet making sure you set the font to UK Cursive. Encourage your child to trace over the letters with his or her index finger.

We will be learning some tricky words (the, I, and, to, is, no, go) that the children will be expected to recognise and read without sounding out. We are going to give out reading books to the children that they will be expected to read to an adult as often as possible.

The children will be learning how to write their names and will be given lots of mark making and writing opportunities both indoors and outdoors. Please make sure they have a warm coat with them every day.
