Spring Term 1 2022
Welcome back to all of the children in our Reception Class!
During this spring term we will be spending time building on our experiences and friendships from the autumn term. We will continue to use our school environment to help us learn and bring many of our own experiences to our daily activities. We have settled in well to our routines and are excited to continue on our journey through Reception.
We continue to focus on the prime areas of learning (Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development) through games, indoor and outdoor play, as well as story and singing sessions.
We are very much enjoying learning through our new phonics and reading programme and we are very proud of how all children are working so hard and becoming confident readers. We will continue to start each day with our phonics sessions and we will enjoy using our knowledge in our reading and writing. Remember to keep looking at your phonics books at home, as well as weekly reading practice books and sharing books from our library.
As mathematicians we will follow our White Rose Maths scheme, as well as our newer mastering number programme.
There will be daily opportunities for learning outside, in all weathers. We will experience free-flow independent learning between the classroom and outdoor areas, as well as exploring our wonderful school grounds. We will explore as nature detectives, finding out about the world around us.
Our topic for this term is The World Inside a Book. Through this topic we will explore and learn from inside a book to experience adventures, magical moments, laughter, colour and friendship. Re-telling, acting out and using props will help us understand more about characters, settings and things that happen in stories.
We will welcome children through our blue gate from 8.45-8.55 in the morning and children can be collected at 3.15pm. Remember to bring your water bottle, coat (if needed) and book bag every day. P.E kits and welly boots can be left at school to use. Bring gloves/scarf/hat for those colder days.
If you have any questions or you would like to send me information about any of your learning at home, please contact me by email.
Let’s continue on our learning journey.
