Reception Class J
Summer Term 2019
This half term we will be focusing on our topic ‘Mini beasts'
The children will be learning all about the habitats and the different types of Minibeasts. We will be taking a trip to Coombs valley to do a bug hunt. We will also go pond dipping to find lots of different creatures.
We have also been enjoying the text 'The Bad Tempered Ladybird' by Eric Carle.
Look at our Minibeast Hotels we made!!
In Maths children are continuing to work on number recognition, counting and organising number. We are also learning about doubling and halving numbers to 10.
We are also starting to think about the way numbers are organised and how to count more and less.
We are now looking at time and our daily routine. We have also been learning about capacity through our water table. We have filled different sized containers to see what we can find out.
Please remember to bring a sun hat and sun cream as the weather gets warmer.
Please could your child wear a suitable waterproof coat to school
and bring wellies that can be left on their pegs
– we do like to play in the water and sand and we want to avoid soggy feet
Also remember that reading every day is very important for your child and will help them develop skills
in listening and attention as well as reading skills.
Homework is sent out on a Wednesday to be completed and returned on Monday.
Children have PE on a Monday so a full labelled PE kit must be in school at all times.
Please help to encourage your child to dress and undress at home independently
as this will help them during PE sessions.
Children will need to bring in a bottle with water (not juice) clearly marked with their names,
so that they can help themselves to a drink when they need one.
Resources to support your child at home
