Reception

Hello and welcome to Reception!

Our class teacher is Miss Lee, and our teaching assistants are Mr Dumughn and Miss Jarman.

Spring Term 2022

In Reception this term our overall topic in Spring 1: Tell me a story… ‘Traditional tales’

Traditional tales is a great topic for the children to develop their own knowledge of traditional stories and expand on their prior understanding. We will be encouraging the children to develop their own stories using their imagination and phonics knowledge. They will be supported to sequence the story and writing full sentences using phase 3 phonics.

In Spring 2 our topic is: ‘Under the Sea/Our planet’– 

The children will be supported to understand about different creatures that live under the sea. They will develop their knowledge of different environments and habitats. Children will be given the opportunity to explore our environment by looking at nature around us and discussing why our planet is important. We will be labelling and planting a variety of plants ready for spring.

In Maths the children will begin to develop their number bonds to 10. Using subitising of small amounts combined with their understanding of addition of single digit numbers. We will be incorporating this during cooking sessions (and eating!) of baked goods.

In Early Years we share a love of learning and allowing children to develop their interests in their environment. Our embedded curriculum allows us to support children through a child-based learning technique. We support children to develop their independence and guide them in their play and routines.
