Are We There Yet?
Welcome to our Reception class page! Out topic for summer one is called 'Are We There Yet'? We will be learning all about our favourite types of transport. These include fast cars, steam trains, diggers and lorries, aeroplanes, hot air balloons, submarines and even rockets! We will also be thinking about travelling and places we like to visit, which are either real of imaginary! We will be making lots of transport themed craft so any junk modelling you have at home we will be grateful for.
Please note our Talk for Writing Text for this half term will be 'My Gumpy's Steam Train'. In phonics this half term we are recapping all of our phase 3 sounds - these include all of the digraphs and trigraphs we gave out in the spring term. Please support your child to learn their phase 3 sounds at home. Please also remember to read with your child daily at home. This includes recapping your child's flashcards and helping your child to sight read the words within their books. We promote a love of reading in Reception so please help your child by talking about their chosen stories throughout. Please remember to drop finished books into the box in Reception so we can issue you a new one.
In maths this half term we will be looking at adding and taking away of two single digit numbers, as well as looking at the language of 'more', 'less' and 'fewer' to compare amounts. Please support your children with practical maths at home.
Reminders: please note PE is on a Monday afternoon.
Show and Tell and library time is every Friday.
