This term in Reception, we will be learning about each other and our new school.
In Reception we learn through play!
Our continual provision covers the full Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, which you can explore here.
Children will have lots of time every day to learn within the provision both inside and outside, both independently and with the support of their friends and adults in the environment.Topic
Though our topic ‘Animals’ we will be exploring:
We are reading a range of books such as The Most Important Animal of All and The Big Book of Beasts to support our learning.
Reading and Phonics
We are beginning to learn our Set 1 Sounds to support the development of reading. As a class, we will be reading high quality stories to engage children and spark their imagination. We will use these books as a stimulus for drama, role-play and artwork to develop understanding and language.
To support a love of reading, every Friday Reception children select their own story from the classroom to read with their families at home.
During freeflow learning time, Early Years practitioners will be working with children to:
Develop our gross and fine motor skills to build the strength that we need when writing. We are also being challenged to find the initial sound of words and beginning to write it down.
Our maths learning will focus on:
Developing our understanding of numbers. At the beginning of Spring, we will been learning to compare the amount of things such as blocks and toys, using language such as more than, fewer than and equal to. We will also be learning how to represent numbers to 5 in different ways with resources such as blocks.
Our theme this half term is ‘Celebrating Differences’ where we will be thinking about what is important to us as well as what is important to others. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to share our own ideas as well as learning about other children. This will also support us in developing skills such as sharing toys and speaking kindly to help us develop positive friendships.
