Spring Term 2 2020
Welcome to Reception! This is the start of your journey at Southill and we are all very excited to make new friends and learn together.
As we continue through this spring term we will continue 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 in to our daily activities. We have settled in well to our routines and are excited to continue on our journey through Reception.
As readers we will revisit many familiar stories, songs and rhymes and enjoy reading from our ‘favourite collection’. We will add to this collection as we find out about a wide range of stories, books and rhymes. Our classroom ‘book nooks’ have been enhanced through the addition of new comfy beanbags and story cushions.
Phonics will still be taught at the start of each day. As we become more confident using our knowledge of letters, sounds and words we will enjoy reading and writing for many different reasons. Please make sure you read every day at home to keep using your phonic knowledge.
We continue to enjoy spending time outside and we continue to develop our confidence using our wheeled vehicles. We aim to continue developing resources for our outdoor learning. We enjoy exploring the seasons around our school setting, finding clues for autumn and winter, and soon we will become spring detectives.
P.E kits can be kept in school so that we can use them during the week.
It is great for us to hear about activities outside of school so remember to fill in a WOW slip when you want to tell us something exciting!
Remember to look at our weekly updates on the website, as well as ideas for home learning and information about our topic.
Please come and speak to any of the Reception Team if you have any questions.
