Reception 2019 - 2020

Mrs Wheatcroft

Welcome to our Reception page!

This term we are looking at a story about a star and some of our activities will be about Space, stars and planets.

We will be focusing on money as part of our maths work and in the science element of the curriculum we will be looking at the properties of materials and at making predictions. 

In our SRE (Sex and Relationship Education) sessions Reception are required to cover Families and Basic Health and Hygiene.  I will be using books and resources recommended for this area of learning in this age group. The book about families shows a range of different ways in which families can be made up using illustrations of different animals. The health and hygiene sessions cover the importanceof keeping clean and the routines we all follow during a typical day e.g. brushing our teeth, going to the toilet, washing our hands etc.

Phonics continues to be taught daily and integrated into continuous provision and also specific reading and writing activities. Maths continues to be taught in focussed sessions and embedded throughout the school day. 

PE is on Tuesday mornings and will take place outside , weather permitting,  to practice skills that will be incorporated into Sports Day. Please send in shoes suitable for this, clearly named please. You may also want to add extra items (joggers, sweatshirts) in case it's chilly sometimes. 

We enjoyed our second visit to the library and Pam was happy to welcome us back. We have few more dates in the diary to go again. Pam is looking forward to telling the children all about the Summer Reading challenge.
