Welcome to our learning in Reception - Summer 1


Welcome back to Reception for the final third of the year!  It’s so nice to have the brighter weather and more time to play in the outside classroom.

This term in Reception, we will be looking at sea creatures, following on from our lovely trip to the London Aquarium!  This topic ties into a broader one of knowledge and understanding of the world; we will also be visiting Mudchute Farm this term and finding out all about the animals who live there.  We have also been planting some plants and flowers in Reception’s outside area, and will be looking at how they change and grow over the coming weeks.

For Literacy, we will be writing riddles describing sea creatures, and attempting to solve each other’s clues; we will also read The Rainbow Fish, by Marcus Pfister, and Commotion in the Ocean, by Giles Andreae, which will help to inspire us with our own riddles.  We will also look at fairytales.  In Numeracy, we will be starting to think about telling the time!

This term will see the start of our weekly run in the Pleasaunce on Friday mornings, following on from the Reading Workshops, and we will also be continuing with Foodie Friday – an altogether fantastic way to end the week – we look forward to seeing lots of you there, and also to having the opportunity to taste a variety of different foods!
