Here you will find lots of useful information about our learning and about the things we are getting up to in Reception. All our learning is very cross-cirricular as it can help to deepen children's learning by putting it into context. We have daily phonics (RWI), literacy and maths sessions, with plenty of opportinity for free choice where the classroom and outside provision will be set up with lots of fun and engaging activities to allow children to practise skills that have been taught as well as many more. 

Spring 1

I am travelling with endangered animal or plant species: what must I do? |  FPS Public Health

This half term our work will be based around Travel and Transport as well as your children's interests. We will be learning about different journeys your child has been on. Where they would like to travel to the most and how they might get there. We will be using our imagination to travel to different places around the world; discovering famous landmarks and having fun learning about other cultures. 

We follow Pathways to Write, where we enjoy lots of new books and base our reading and writing around each text. So far we have enjoyed 'The Gingerbread Man', 'I Am Going To Eat This Ant' and this term we are going to be exlporing the text 'Naughty Bus.'

Here is a link for you to listen and watch the story 'Naughty Bus'

Can you and your child discuss these things:

Where did the Naughty bus go? How did he make the people at the bus stop feel? Why do you think he was being so naughty? What could he do to make things better? How do you think Naughty Bus was feeling? If you were Naughty Bus where would you like to travel to and why?

We will also be continuing with our daily Read Write Inc sessions. We will be revisiting previous sounds and learning to form letters using the correct formation using our RWI letter formation rhymes. 

It is very important that children use the correct letter formation as it is laying the early foundations for them to become an efficient writer.
