Reception

Latest Updates

Weekly Information

After the excitement of our rocket crash in week 1, this week we are starting to learn more about Space. We will be using information books and the internet to find out about the Sun, the planets and the moon. We will continue thinking about Space in our Space Station role play areas and through our creative activities.

In English we are reading the story Whatever Next where Baby Bear visits the moon for a picnic. We are role playing the story with props, and learning it as a text map. In phonics we are starting to learn digraphs, two letters which make one sound. The sounds we are learning are sh, ch, th, ng.

In Maths we will continue to learn about teen numbers. We are learning that teen numbers are made up of a ten and ones. We will be learning to order these and start to use them to add and subtract.

General Information

Our topic this half term is “Into the Darkness!” We will be finding out about nocturnal animals and different sources of light. We will also be thinking about how light is an important part of many celebrations including Diwali and Christmas.

In maths we are learning to order numerals, find one more and one using objects, our fingers and a number line. We will also be starting to work on adding and taking away. We will also cover 2d shapes and their properties as well as ordering items by weight.

In English we will be reading the story Owl Babies. We will be retelling the story using a text map and using the story structure to write our own stories. We will continue to learn new letter sounds in phonics, as well as tricky words (words that cannot be sounded out). We will continue to work on blending sounds to read and segmenting sounds to read.
