Reception (2023-24)

Hello and welcome to our Reception class page!


Welcome back everyone! We hope that you all had a wonderful half-term break, and a well-deserved rest. We are looking forward to our new half-term and our exciting new topic!

This half-term, our new topic will be ‘Going Green.’ Throughout this topic, we will be learning all about ways that we can take care of our planet. We will look at the 5 'R' words (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair and Refuse) and how we can demonstrate these in our everyday lives. We will also be looking at where our food comes from around the world, the oceans we have on our planet, and how we can make changes to protect the animals living here!

In Literacy, we will be reading a range of fiction and non-fiction texts based around our topic. We will continue to develop our writing skills by writing short sentences using our phonetic knowledge. We will also teach lots of new vocabulary this half-term, based on our topic, to help with our writing and communication skills. In Phonics, we will be recapping all the sounds that we have learnt so far, and using these to read and spell longer words and sentences.

In Maths, we will be exploring and representing patterns within numbers to 10, including evens and odds, double facts and how quantities can be distributed equally. We will continue to practise our number bonds to 5/10 and we will also continue to learn how to write addition/subtraction number sentences using various different strategies and resources.

Mrs Grindey, Miss Sutton and Miss Purslow
