It is our last term in Reception! We have worked so hard and developed across our whole curriculum. Now we are going to get Year 1 ready this term as we have opportunities to achieve our Early Learning Goals and persevere through challenge. Our topic this half term is all about animals, so our quality texts to be shared have an animal focus - starting with Dear Zoo. We have already prepared ourselves for this term with some amazing pieces of homework done over the Easter break. Well done for putting a lot of effort in to your animal posters and finding out lots of facts. These pieces of work have gone on display in class.
Personal,Social and Emotional Development - This term focuses on how we bounce back from difficulties and to have the confidence to persevere when seeking challenge in the classroom. Moving on in to Summer 2 we will be looking at transition and what our goals are for starting Year 1.
Reading and Writing - The children are progressing well through their Read, Write Inc. reading scheme and have skill when it comes to decoding and blending less familiar words. This term focuses on their comprehension and understanding of what they have read. We have also been exploring how some words use sounds and some words we need to use the letter name for. Our writing skills and capabilities to apply our phonic knowledge has progressed well and we are generating our own ideas and improving sentences to have more detail. We will also look at proof reading sentences for mistakes and re-reading our own sentences to check for sense.
Maths - This term we are looking for previous skills learnt to be applied in problem-solving and in greater depth. We will be learning to transfer our skills in a variety of different situations and working through challenges with a partner.
We are excited to become Year 1 ready, relying on our knowledge to independently solve problems and persevere with challenge! Please continue to read at home and complete all homework set each week. Thank you.
