One of the highlights for Reception was a visit from the brilliant author and illustrator James Mayhew, who told us a story whilst drawing an amazing picture to illustrate it right in front of our eyes!

  • Dear Santa
    One of our favourite moments was going to Letchworth Theatre to watch a fantastic production of Dear Santa - it was amazing to see how the book was brought to life, and for lots of us it was our first ever trip to the theatre.

  • Tapestry
    Our children have loved the fact that we have been able to share their Tapestry journals with you this half term! We have seen children become really excited to share what their parents have been putting online, and this in turn has undoubtedly helped the development of speaking, listening and communication skills. Our children also enjoy talking to their friends about what has been put online via the app and this has helped strengthen friendships and connect children through common interests and experiences

What we've learnt about this term:x

  • Own Learning
    Throughout the term, we have had the chance to try out a huge range of activities, linked to our topics, learning and interests, and as we have developed and become more settled in our classes, we have engaged with these more and more. As a result, many of us have made fantastic progress over the last few months, with our language and listening skills improving particularly well. We always look forward to finding out what new activities have appeared in our rooms each day, and are also keen to find new ways to explore, use and play with the equipment and resources around us. We have picked out a few of our favourite moments from this half-term to share with you below...

Communication & Language:
Throughout the term, we will be learning to be good listeners, developing our ability to use spoken language to share our feelings, ideas and experiences. We will be encouraged to speak in full sentences at all times, making sure that we use the right tense (past, present or future) and sensible vocabulary.

We will also be broadening our vocabulary through stories, asking and answering questions about the texts we have met and trying to use because and and to link ideas.

Literacy:
This term we will be looking at a non-fiction information text, We are going to be reading information on animals and finding out lots of new things about them. We shall use our visit to the farm to help us. We shall also be starting to learn new sounds for our phonics. Look out for the new sounds we talk about at home.

Maths:
In mathematics we will be looking at numbers 1-20 and working with numbers to 20. Some of us will still need to work on counting to 10. We will be really practising recognising numerals and counting that amount of objects. We will also reinforce our recognising different 2D and 3D shapes. You can help us at home by counting with us every day and looking for the numbers and shapes all around us!

Personal, Social & Emotional Learning
We will make sure that we are talking to our friends whilst playing, always using kind words and trying to develop relationships. We will be encouraged to add storylines and narratives in our play, and to share these ideas with others so we can all take part in a story.

Understanding the World
We will be doing lots of planting and growing and will be helping to take care of our Early Years garden! We will be talking lots abut changes and thinking about why things happen and how things work. We will think about technology and how we use it to help us.
