Welcome to Reception!
Our topic this term is 'Superheroes'
This term our topic is 'Superheroes'. Within this topic we will be reading Supertato to learn about heroes and villains and what makes a hero so special. We will be retelling the story, using the Pie Corbett approach of 'Talk for writing', as well as investigating rhyming words and letter sounds. The stories will be linked with our Personal, Social and Emotional Development, as we discuss what makes us special and how some people are real life superheroes. We will be taking on the role of different characters, using hot seating and role play. Children will also be developing their skills of thinking and asking their own questions.
Im maths, we will be matching and comparing amounts, size, mass and capacity, whilst also exploring patterns. We will then move on to our KIRF: Recognising the numbers 1-5.
Useful websites- click on the links below to access games and resources linked to our topic:
Forest School will take place on a Wednesday afternoon.
Please ensure your child has wellies and a waterproof coat in school at all time.
PE takes place on a Friday. Your child should attend school in their PE kit on this day.
Throughout the year we will be holding inspire workshops. These are opportunities for parents to come in and experience Maths, Phonics and English sessions. Handy tips for continued learning at home will be shared too.
Dates will be given nearer the time.
ACTIVITIES TO CONTINUE THE LEARNING AT HOME
We value the support you can give your child at home in helping to develop the basic skills of English and Maths.
In Reception, we hope that children will be engaged in continuing their learning for approximately 10 minutes per night. Most of this time will be used to read with your child and discuss what they have read. Reading stories on a regular basis helps children develop a sense of the story structure and fires their imagination.
Other learning opportunities may be practical activities such as counting, adding or solving problems e.g. how many knives and forks do I need to get for three people?
Each day, children take part in a planned phonics session, following Letters and Sounds. Children are introduced to new letter sounds and then learn how to read and write them by 'segmenting' and 'blending'. Children are also taught 'Tricky Words' and 'high frequency words'. Please speak to us, for more information about this or how you can help extend your child's learning further.
