Hope you have all had a lovely break.
This half term our topic is all about 'Journeys'. As it is our Summer term, we are also getting the reception children to work more independently and persevere with any challenges - saying that 'We have a go!'
Personal,Social and Emotional Development - This term focuses on healthy life choices such as exercise and it's importance. We have looked at how to keep our teeth healthy and the foods that should be in our diet. It is important this term for the children to independently seek challenge and apply their skills to new situations.
Reading and Writing - The children continue to develop reading skills in guided reading sessions and we are starting to read our own writing to help build up sentences and think about the 'reader'. We are attempting simple sentences and also making improvements. The children are going to be generating their own sentences this term and independently recording through Think - Say - Write techniques.
Maths - We continue to develop skills around addition, subtraction, doubling and halving. We are also naming and describing 3D shapes. The children will be asked to go on a journey to hunt down a variety of shapes!
As part of homework this term, we will start to have spellings going home to practise and learn so the children not only know how to spell them but can use them in a sentence. Keep up the good work with reading at home, using reading eggs and going to the library to get the children excited about reading.
