Reception routine and curriculum

In Reception class we have lots of opportunities to learn through play. We love to make things, build, play games and pretend! We have Literacy and Numeracy lessons where we learn to read, write, and find out about numbers, shapes and measurement. Through our Topic work we investigate, explore and create. We also learn how to be good friends and helpful members of the class.

PE

This takes place any day of the week. I need a named t-shirt and shorts in a bag. This can be left on my peg for half a term so I don’t forget it.

Topics for this Term:

Ourselves

Superheroes

Harvest Festival

Toys

Christmas

 

Homework

We will be given reading books and words to learn at home. I need to practice these for a few minutes every night.

Thank you for your support

Do you have a pet you could bring in to show? This week we will be visited by cats, dogs and gerbils. The children have been finding out about different pets and first hand experience is so valuable!! Please speak to a member of staff if you feel you could contribute. Thanks also to parents and children who have brought in photos of pets. The children have loved talking about their pets. Photos will be displayed in the 'vets' . Please feel free to keep sending your photos in. 
Next week we will be changing our role play area into a petshop/vets. We would be grateful for any pet equipment eg toys, feeding equipment, lead, cage etc to enhance our play. If children would like to bring in photos of their own pets, we will have the opportunity to look at them together. Please ensure anything you need returning is named. Thankyou
