Every day we have:
Phonics - This is where we learn our new sounds.
Maths - We have a maths input everyday, followed by exciting free-flow maths activities.
Writing - Each week we take part in a paper write and a creative write. We apply our knowledge of sounds when we write and practise our letter formation.
Story Study/Guided Reading - Every week we focus on a book. We have read and taken part in lots of fun activities based on these stories; Goldilocks & The Three Bears, Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See, The Gruffalo, We're Going On a Bear Hunt and Handa's Surprise.
Topic - Our current topic is Winter.
This year we will be learning about certain topics such as
Autumn 1 - All about ourselves
Autumn 2 - Autumn and festivals (Diwali, Bonfire Night & Christmas) We also look at Winter and the changes in weather.
Spring 1 - The Arctic and Chinese New Year.
Spring 2 - Growing (plants, animals and people)
Summer 1 - Minibeasts
Summer 2 - People Who Help Us
Every Thursday afternoon we visit the wooded area at the back of our reception garden. This gives children the opportunity to explore the natural environment, investigate plants and minibeasts and get muddy!
We have PE on a Wednesday afternoon so please ensure your child has their PE kit at school for that day! Children must have their full P.E kits in school - yellow t-shirt, blue shorts/black jogging bottoms and black plimsolls. Please make sure you label your child's clothing with their name!
Getting changed can be quite busy with some of the children managing to lose trousers or jumpers to the other side of the classroom...please can you label all of your child's clothes before you send them in. This makes it much easier to find missing pieces of clothes.
