Reception - Sprites and Unicorns

Spring Term 2020

Our project for this term is ‘Once upon a time’. We will be covering traditional stories such as ‘The Gingerbread Man’, ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’. We will be learning to sequence and retell events and act out them out, as well as developing our writing skills. We have lots of exciting activities planned such as cooking gingerbread, mixing porridge oats and building houses out of different materials.

In Literacy, we will be supporting the children to develop their knowledge of sounds during phonic lessons to enable the children to read words and short sentences independently. The adults will read to the class on a daily basis as well as sharing the children’s reading books with them once a week which they have practiced at home.

We will also be celebrating Chinese New Year, Easter and World book day this term and exploring traditional family customs and routines. We will be looking at the changes that take place as we move into Spring and venture outside as much as possible to take advantage of the learning on offer in the great outdoors.

In Maths, we are going to continue working on mastering numbers to 10 and begin to count amounts accurately beyond ten. We will be finding one more and less than a given number and will begin to add and take away practically. The children will be asked to explain their thinking and make comparisons about the shape and size of objects. 

The children will continue their lessons with our BMAT specialist P.E. teachers and will 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.

We will continue to use Tapestry as a platform to document the children’s learning and we are always excited to see things uploaded from home.

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