Hope you have all had a lovely break.
This half term our topic is focusing on 'Ourselves in Spring and Food'. This half term we are continuing to encourage the children to be more independent learners and start to work together in order to solve problems or complete a task. The reception children will each be given a very special 'job title', where they will be responsible to carry out that role on a daily basis. Such as, 'Chief Water Bottle Monitors'.
Personal,Social and Emotional Development - This term focuses on making a positive contribution through helping hands. The use of our job responsibilities will help us to work as a team and boost our confidence. We will be creating an 'I can...' display board in class to show what we are good at. This gives our children the opportunity to discuss their achievements in a positive way. As our topic this term is also about different types of foods, we will explore healthy eating and what it is to have a balanced diet.
Reading and Writing - We are developing our abilities to read CVC and less familiar words from the texts that we explore. Pre-teach vocabulary sessions for new stories or themes have worked well for the children to discuss their ideas. This term we will be looking at writing labels, captions and simple sentences. The reception children will have writing specifically modeled and we would like to see more writing in their homework as we progress through the Spring term.
Maths - The children worked hard last term on counting, recognising and recording numbers. During the Spring term we will be demonstrating what is meant by the term adding and subtracting, allowing children to use language related to this. Some examples may include take away, less and smaller.
Thank you to our amazing parents that work hard at home to support their child's learning. Please continue to practise reading and writing numbers, name writing, letter/sound recognition on your Phase cards and any spellings that are given as part of homework.
Miss Roberts, Mrs Valli and Miss Begum.
