Our Learning Journey – Spring term 2019
Our theme this term is A Magical World’ and our challenge is to make an outdoor area magical. Our learning for this challenge will have strong links to technology, designing and making a fairy village for the fairies that live in our forest school.
Reception really enjoyed their trip to the fairy forest in Lichfield. We got lots of ideas of how we can make our own forest school magical as this is our challenge this term. We also loved our picnic in Beacon Park. Hope you enjoy seeing some of the photos from our great day out!
In Maths we will continue to work with numbers to 20 especially thinking about 1 more and 1 less, counting, adding and subtracting. We will also be working with money and learning the names and properties of shapes.
The children have made fantastic progress in phonics and this term they will be grouped with year one and two for daily phonics lessons. They will continue to learn more sounds and apply their knowledge in their reading and writing.
PE will be once a week. Please make sure your child has a NAMED PE kit in school at all times.
Homework – Little and Often!
Children will have a school reading book coming home with them each week. We can’t stress enough how important it is to support your child at this early stage in reading, when learning continues at home your child will progress much faster. Please also ensure you sign your child’s purple reading diary/book when you read with them.
My classroom release for planning and leadership will usually be on Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon during this time Mrs Leighton will lead the class and we welcome Mrs Allen to our team, who will support teaching in Reception on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
If you have any questions about your child’s learning or how best you can help at home, please do not hesitate to ask myself or Mrs Leighton.
Extra Spare Clothing.
Accidents will happen!!! Any parents. that have spare pants, trousers and skirts that they can donate to school would be very much appreciated. Thank you for your support.
Our Learning Journey – Autumn 2018
Our theme is ‘The Big Multicultural Adventure’ and our challenge is to present to parents where we would like to travel in the world. Our learning for this challenge will have strong links to ‘Understanding of the World’. We will begin by looking at ourselves and comparing our lives with other children in our class. We will find out about our local area and different cultures and countries around the world and compare them with each other. For our hook to introduce our learning about other countries we will be joining Nursery for a music and dance workshop.
