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 inside and out. The 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. 

Summer 2

This half term our work will be based around Superhero's as well as your children's interests. We will be learning about different fictional superhero's aswell as hero's of our community such as family members, police and fire services, Doctors and Nurses etc. We will be using our imagination to explore the world around us to make sense of the world through discussing another character or pretending to be a character such as a superhero. We will be creating our own superhero's and thinking of powers and gadgets we would want if we were superhero's. 

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', 'Naughty Bus',  'Hattie Peck, The Journey Home', 'Silly Doggy' and this term we are going to be exlporing the text 'Supertato' by Sue Hendra & Paul Linnet.

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.
