Autumn 1 2019
We have been very busy settling into Reception by exploring the different areas in our classroom, learning the routines of the school day and getting to know our new teachers. We are really looking forward to learning about ourselves and each other this half term!
Autumn 2 2019
We have been working really hard to learn the letter names and sounds of these 6 letters: S A T P I N. We have been very busy trying to form these letters and recognise these letters and sounds in words. We are also developing our computer skills, speaking and listening skills, cutting skills and continuing to explore the different areas in our classroom.
This half term we have a tennis coach and a cricket coach in school to help us learn some new skills in PE including throwing, batting, running, hitting and catching.
We have started our "Huff and Puff" sessions outside where we do lots of exercise and we have been thinking about our throwing and catching skills, balancing and moving about in different ways.
Spring 1 2020
This half term we are very lucky to have a football coach in school to help us with our football skills. This will be lots of fun!
We are continuing to practise our letter formation and we are learning more letters and sounds which is helping us to get much better at reading and writing. We are also learning to read and write tricky words!
In the Maths area we are working out missing numbers and thinking about 1 more and 1 less than a number as well as practicing our number formation by writing our numbers onto squared pieces of paper and boards.
This half term our topic is 'Toys.' Our role play area is a toy workshop and where we have to fix broken toys using a range of different tools. We will be thinking about what materials toys are made from, how they work and what they do.
We have introduced Ipads this half term and we are using them to help us practise our number knowledge and letter formation.
