Reception

Gruffalos & Billy Goats Classes

Curriculum for SPRING TERM 1

This half term our topic is Traditional Tales. Including, Goldilocks, the Gingerbread Man and Three Little Pigs.

As Readers 

We will continue to learn and practise our sounds in phonics using the programme Letters and Sounds. We will be developing our ability to blend to read independently. We will also be enjoying a range of traditional tales such as Goldilocks, the Gingerbread Man and Three Little Pigs.

As Writers

We will be working hard to develop our letter formation, ensuring we start and finish in the correct place to form recognisable letters. We will explore composing sentences to apply to our writing, remembering to use finger spaces in between words. We will be using sounds learnt in phonics to hear more sounds in words and applying these to our written work.

As Mathematicians

We will be exploring capacity using a variety of resources such as pompoms, water and cubes to discover how much different containers can hold and say when they are empty, half-full, nearly full and full. We will be looking at height using tape measures, rulers and cubes and beginning to use related language eg, tallest / shortest. We will introduce prepositions through practical activities, following instructions to place a bear behind, in front, next to etc a chair

As Explorers

We will be looking at celebrations and customs from different cultures for Chinese New Year. We will be exploring the properties of different materials for constructing, building houses for the three pigs and a comfy bed for goldilocks.

PE

Lessons take place on Friday mornings. Please ensure that your child leaves a P.E kit in school with all items named. Please support your child’s enjoyment of P.E, by encouraging them to practise dressing independently. Lessons will be taught by specialist teachers, who will focus on developing gross motor skills, such as ball and running control.

Home Learning

Please try to read with your child every week and leave a comment in their diary so we know how they responded to the story. Please practise the sounds from your phonics packs with your child, you can also use these to blend for reading by making cvc words eg, cat, hat, pot using the sound cards and asking your child to blend these sounds. We now have a games station set up in class for children to enjoy dice, domino, card games to support their general number knowledge, it would be great if they could play these at home also to support this.
