Welcome to Reception Class

Teachers - Mrs Mann & Miss Brundle

Teaching Assistants - Miss Holmes & Miss Oldman

For the first half of this term our topic is Me Myself and I.

Through this topic we will explore our feelings with The Colour Monster, families through Titch, our bodies inspired by Funnybones and keeping ourselves healthy.

We will start by getting to know each other, making new friends and learning new rules, but as the term progresses we will be working within the key areas of learning.

 In literacy we will begin our phonics starting with Letters and Sounds phase 2, learning to read and write the phonemes and blending them to begin to read simple words. We will also practice writing our name.

In Maths we will become secure counting to 10 in order and beyond, and learn which numbers come before and after a given number. We will recognise quantities to 5, how this can be made up in groups, and know the numeral which represents the number. We will also sort into groups.

In RE we will share stories: Guess how much I love you and Creation in the Bible, play games and share thoughts and feelings. We will also learn about people and our communities.

We will grow our knowledge of the world noting seasonal changes, talk about their bodies and how they will change over time. We look forward to being creative and creating self portraits.
