In Reception, our teachers are Mrs Adams (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Hodgson (Thursday and Friday and EYFS leader) and our teaching assistants are Mrs King, Mrs Trott and Mrs MacDonald.
Our topic for the summer term is ‘Traditional tales.’
We shall be reading, acting out and discussing a range of Traditional tales, including The 3 little pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Gingerbread Man, to name just a few! We will be investigating different materials, changes and floating and sinking.
We shall be continuing to investigate planting and growing and finding out what plants need to grow and parts of a plant. We will look at how food can be grown and used in our cooking.
Linked to our Jigsaw topic – ‘Relationships’, we will think about how we can all get on and be friends. We will look at the relationships between the characters in different Traditional Tales.
In phonics, we will be continuing to apply phase 2 and 3 phonemes using the diagraphs (two letters to make one phoneme) eg, ch, sh, th and trigraphs (three letters to make one phoneme) eg, air, ear, ure, to read and write words and simple sentences.
In maths, we will be working on subtraction, doubling, halving, sharing and talking about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. We will also be trying to solve problems!
