Summer 1

This half term we will carry on with our home learning. In Literacy we will focus on a different book every week, exploring it, drawing, talking about it, imagining and writing.

In RE we will explore the question- Who cares for this special world and why? We will be focusing on appreciating how special our world is, the different people who look after it and the ways we can help look after it too.

In Maths we will cover a range of topics such as ordering numbers, measure, adding, subtracting, halving and doubling. We will try to do this in a practical way where possible and we will use resources such as games on Purple Mash, videos and workbooks to support and consolidate.

Ms Periton will continue setting weekly art tasks and the outcomes can be shared on reception’s special art blog for everyone to enjoy.

A different sort of half term with lots of exciting learning happening at home!

Spring 2

This half term we will continue using our phonics to practise blending for reading and segmenting for spelling CVC words.

We will continue learning about The Tempest through drama, art, music and literacy working towards the Shakespeare performance and exhibition at the end of this term.

We will learn about money in a practical way through our new reception snack shop, the shopkeepers and customers will use a checkpoint to ensure the correct amount of money is being paid.

A busy half term with lots to look forward to!
