Reception

In the second half term, Reception are continuing our theme of ‘Sustainability’ through the core text ‘Why do we need bees?’ by Katie Daynes.  We will learn about different animals and habits using a range of sources.  We will be using this knowledge to make our very our own fact files for endangered animals. 

In Literacy, we will be applying our phonics knowledge and Writer’s Toolkit to label different parts of a bee. We will also be learning about the different types of bees, the process of making honey as well as, learning how to plant and what plants need to grow.  

In Mathematics, we will be exploring how many we ways we can create number bonds to 10 by addition and subtraction number stories. We will also be learning about the properties of both 2D and 3D shapes using mathematical vocabulary. There is also a focus on time and sequencing events of day such as brushing teeth, breakfast and also a focus on the position and distance of an object. 

Parents can support their child's learning through reading with them every day and discussing the stories that they have read, and by looking at searching the internet to read about our topics.  Practicing counting and number skills when out and about will support children’s development and understanding in Maths.  In line with the termly theme based on ‘Sustainaibility’, reading your child a story focusing on animals will help them to develop their ideas.  If you would like to discuss more about how you can help your child at home please see your child's class teacher.
