Welcome to Reception
Last update: (17/09/17)
The class web page is a great place to come to for information about what is going on in class. It also
explains what things you need to be doing, both at home and at school to get the best out of your time in Reception.
The page is updated each week with new newsletters, homework tasks etc. You can also find out about our current topics, see photos of things we've done and reminders - such as important dates.
Keep checking back regularly and any questions please see one of the Reception team. Here's to a great year!

Current Topic: Harvest and Autumn time
Start date: (09/10/17)
This term our areas of provision will be based around the stories 'Oliver's vegetables' and 'The little red hen'. Some of the activities in our provision will involve fruits and vegetables to make crafts, investigate if they float or sink in the water tray, and buy and sell in the role play farm shop. We will be looking at changes during Autumn, such as how the weather changes, hibernating animals and also learning about different traditions and festivals during this season.
In maths this half term we are counting up to 20 and practicing writing numbers 0-9. We are also using positional language in our play by describing where a toy is e.g. under the bridge, going over the bridge, going through, on top, behind, in-front etc.
We are also comparing, ordering and sorting objects according to size and weight,
In Literacy this half term we will be using familiar phrases from stories to re-tell or act out a narrative. We will be learning to write our names and make other meaningful marks,
We will be using word mats to help us write labels on our work.
Read, Write Inc:
We are continuing to learn our sounds each day and we are also learning how to write them in our books.
Some children have moved up to a group working with Mrs Halliday where they are now blending sounds together to read simple words.
