Welcome to Reception
We hope you have had a lovely summer and are ready to start your learning journey with us this year as you enter into your first year of education.
We have two Reception Classes in our Early Years Foundation Stage Unit. Our teachers are Miss Lougheed and Miss Jackson. We have Mrs Heath, Mrs Thompson and Mrs Peacock to help us learn too.
Autumn term 1
This term we will be playing lots of number games in our play to help us with our counting and numeral recognition. We will have a maths focused activity every day and will be using numicons and pegs to help with our learning. We will be recording lengths of objects and looking at their size and shape. We will also be ordering numbers and looking at their quantity.
In our phonics sessions we will playing lots of fun activities to help us learn different sounds. We will be building on this knowledge to help us segment and blend words to read and write. We are using jolly phonics to sing and dance sounds to help us remember. You can listen to these sounds on YouTube at home.
We will be learning how to write our name and simple words this term. To help us with our writing we will be doing dough disco to develop our fine motor skills to enable us to hold a pen correctly. We will then be moving on to weekly handwriting sessions. In our literacy sessions we will be looking at lots of different stories and talking about the different characters, settings and events in the story. We will have the chance to act these stories out in our play and write about the different characters.
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will be changing the children's reading books
We have enjoyed dressing up this week and we have been talking about what we want to be when we grow up.
Talk to your child about people who help us in our local town.
We have learnt these sounds so far:
