‘Spring 1

Welcome to Reception!

It is such a privilege to be working in such a wonderful school and I cannot wait to help your child blossom and fulfil their potential.  I believe in providing children with learning experiences that they will remember for years to come.  I am an advocate for learning through play and cannot wait to share all the fun with you. The fun has already begun and the children are eager and enthusiastic to learn.

“Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.” Dr Seuss.

Thankyou for the gifts, cards and Season’s Greetings that we received in December. We look forward to working with you in 2023.

Literacy

Our topic for Spring 1 is ‘The Gruffalo & Friends‘. The Gruffalo will be our “Talk for Writing” text: we will learn to retell a shortened version of the story with actions. We will look at woodland environments and explore colder climates through the story of The Gruffalo’s Child. We will celebrate National Storytelling Week ( 31st Jan) with a story session from local author- Rachel Lyon. We will continue our learning about other cultures through Chinese New Year and the traditional tale of The Magic Brush.

To promote questioning, communication and Language, we will introduce ‘Chatter Time’ so grown-ups, watch out as there will soon be a question a fortnight to explore with your child.

Mathematics

Mathematical learning will focus upon numbers 0-10 and the comparative language of measure, including height, length and mass eg. long, longer, longest, short, shorter, shortest, tall, taller, tallest, heavier, heaviest, lighter, lightest.
