Reception - Sprites and Unicorns
Autumn Term 2021
Welcome Unicorns and Sprites!
We hope you had a lovely summer break and are looking forward to starting Reception. We have some exciting topics and learning ready for your first term and cannot wait to share it with you all.
In maths we will be following the Maths Mastery approach. Children will learn that collections of objects can be sorted into sets based on attributes such as colour, size or shape. We will look at how the same collection of objects can be sorted in different ways and look at comparing different objects.
Read Write Inc Phonics
The children will be following Read Write Inc Phonics programme. RWI is a whole-school approach to teaching literacy that creates fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers. It integrates phonics with comprehension, writing, grammar, spelling and handwriting, using engaging partner work and drama. The children will be assigned to groups according to their level and we will be assessing the children continuously, so that they can move through the groups as they progress.

Our theme for this half term is All About Me!
We will be learning all about ourselves and our community. We can't wait to start all the the fun activities with you.
PE day will be Wednesday for both Unicorns and Sprites. The children will come to school dressed in their PE kit.
Reading at Home
Reading everyday to and with your children is more important than ever. Please can you record the reading you do in their Reading Diary as we will be giving out Reader of the Week certificates and praising the children that continue to read at home.
Thank you for your support.
