We have been so excited over the Summer to welcome our new reception children into their new classroom!
This term our topic is focusing on 'All About Me'. The children will discover what they are good at, like and dislike. We will focus on what makes us unique and learn to embrace our differences. We will learn how to work in teams and support each other in achieving our goals.
Personal,Social and Emotional Development - this area will include how we can work well with others and think about how we show each other respect as we would like the same from then. The children will compare their families with each other and encouraged to talk about themselves in a positive way.
Reading and Writing - our focus is on traditional tales and we will begin to explore our likes and dislikes.
Which tale was our favourite? Why? Which part did you find exciting? Can you remember what happened? Can you retell the story? We are first looking at the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and will build up a vocabulary vine in our classroom. Hopefully the giant won't climb down!
Maths - We will be assessing children on their knowledge and application of number. Ordering numbers, using language such as 'more and less' and matching numeral with quantity. We will be using shape when we look at the environment and ourselves.
The children have settled in well at the start of term. Assessments will be used to inform our learning. The reception staff will inform parents of the use of reading books at home and homework tasks. Please remember to have a look and read our Parent Noticeboard on the reception class window.
