Reception Class J
Welcome to the Reception class page.
In the Spring half term we will be looking at our vehicle 'Icy World'. The children will continue to learn about the different seasons and how these affect our natural world. We will also be learning about freezing and melting. The children will hear the story 'The sneezing snowman' and we will find different ways to stop him from melting.
We will be looking at different animals that live in cold climates in teh Antarctic. The children will learn about penguins, arctic hares and whales.
Please take a look at our curriculum map below to find out more.
We spend lots of time in our lovely outdoor area so children will need to bring coats and water bottles to school every day. If it is wet children can bring wellies. In the Summer children can bring hats and sun cream. Please make sure ALL items of clothing are clearly labelled including water bottles, lunch boxes and PE kits.
We are a Read Write inc school and we work very hard to support your child to become a reader who loves books. To support your child please read every night at home and sign the diary. A book bag must be in school every day to enable us to read with your child and change their book. Children will be sent home with a book after the first week at school.
Please visit the Read Write INc page for more information and don't forget to attend our Read Write INc parents meeting on Wednesday 23rd September.
PE is on a Friday so please ensure your child has a full kit in school so they can take part in their exciting PE session.

In Maths children will be working on number bonds to 10, ways of making numbers up to 10, subitising numbers up to 10, finding the whole using a part-part whole model and using a 10 frame.
We are also starting to think about the way numbers are organised and how to count more and less.
