  • World Book Day
    We joined the whole school in taking part in this year’s Spooktacular Reading Week, sharing some of our favourite stories, meeting authors and taking part in the Book Swap. 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...

Our Spring Term Topic:
Who's That Under My Bridge?
x

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:
We will continue with our daily Read Write Inc sessions, learning to recognise new sounds and blend them to make words. We will be working hard to write more words and build these into sentences, with the aim that we will all be able to write a simple sentence on our own by Easter. Our class story for the next half-term will be The Three Billy Goats Gruff, and we will be using its structure and language to support our own storytelling and writing.

Maths:
Over the next half-term we will be securing our knowledge of numbers, learning to count in sequence to 30 and recognise and write numerals to 20. We will also be working on finding the total amount in two groups by counting all of them. We will also continue to develop our knowledge of 2d and 3d shapes, using correct names whenever we talk about shapes.

As always, we will be singing lots of counting songs to support our learning, including 5 Little Men In A Flying Saucer, 5 Currant Buns, 5 Speckled Frogs and 1,2,3,4,5, Once I Caught A Fish Alive.

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
Linked to our topic, we will be building and experimenting with bridges, thinking about the different materials we could construct them from and suggesting reasons why some might be better than others. We will also be looking at lots of different types of animals and the places they live, both in stories and in the real world. Throughout the term, we will be observing the natural world around us, describing what we see and starting to question why things might happen. In addition, we will be using ipads and laptops every week, learning to use and interact with lots of different programs.
