Welcome back after such a successful first term in reception. This term, children will be expected to take on more responsibilities and independence as they develop their skills further. This half term, our topic is all about Food and the children are really excited about this as they have told me all about their favourite foods already!
Personal,Social and Emotional Development - This term focuses on how resilient we are in the face of a challenge. We are encouraging the reception children to have a go at more challenging tasks and activities to see if we can persevere and keep trying. We will also be expected to congratulate others and praise them for their efforts.
Reading and Writing - The children are learning a new reading scheme which brings phonics, reading and writing together so that our skills and knowledge can be applied more easily. Children have been using their phonic knowledge to support their writing as we attempt to write short sentences for a variety of purposes.
Maths - This term we are re-capping shape with the exploration of 3-D shapes. We will start to look at the use and quantities of money as well this term. The children will be learning that food is grown but also sold and is paid for using money.
We are looking forward to keeping up the hard work this term and making sure that our new skills learnt are put to good use! Please continue to read at home and complete all homework set each week. Thank you.
Mrs Cowell, Mrs Valli, Miss Hussain, Miss Robinson and Miss Sadia.
