Reception - Sprites and Unicorns

Autumn 2019

Welcome to our new children in Unicorns and Sprites class!

Our focus for this term is ‘All about me’. We have lots of exciting activities planned for the children such as drawing portraits of themselves and their families, recognising and writing their names and sharing things that are special to them. We will be helping the children to become as independent as possible in the classroom, changing for P.E and putting their coats on for example.

We will also be learning all about our bodies and read stories such as funny bones to introduce us to the human skeleton. We will look carefully at our features and the similarities and differences between us, using a mirror to look at our reflection.

Maths

In Maths, we are going to be working on mastering every aspect of each number and learning about a special ‘Number of the week’. We will be exploring each number in full- finding the number in the environment, one more and one less, sharing and grouping, finding patterns and solving problems with that number. The children will be asked to explain their thinking and make comparisons. 

Literacy

In Literacy, we will be listening to stories read aloud as part of our daily and the children will be encouraged to answer questions, make comments and recall the stories the class have read. This term we be reading ‘Starting School’ and ‘Funny bones’ by Allen Ahlberg, ‘Owl babies’ by Martin Wadell and lots of non-fiction books about the body. The children will practice reading and writing their names and familiar words such as ‘Mum’ and ‘dog’. They will also learn to sound and blend the letters of the alphabet.

We will be venturing outdoors in the new Reception garden as much as possible this term, exploring the different areas and finding out how they can support the children’s learning. We will also look out for changes in the weather and the season as we move into Autumn.

The children will meet and get to know their specialist P.E. teachers and will have time designated to work on their physical skills twice a week-

Sprites P.E sessions- Monday and Wednesday mornings.

Unicorns P.E sessions- Tuesday and Thursday mornings.

Please ensure you are checking our school weekly newsletter for any upcoming dates and information.

If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to speak to a member of the Reception team.
