Welcome to Reception. Our class teachers are Mrs Howgego, Mrs Philips and Miss Hammond.
This term we will be exploring the question 'Would you rather roam the sky or live under the sea?' We will be learning all about animals, transport and space to enable us to answer our question. Our learning will start with an exciting trip to Colchester Zoo, where we will be looking at animal environments and their adaptions. We are so excited! Our learning will end with a fabulous finish of creating an art exhibition for parents and special visitors to view and possibly buy our art work.
In maths this term we will be securing our learning of numbers to 20. We will be securing our understanding of one more and one less and adding and subtracting within 20.
Then learning about halving, doubling and sharing. Please help your child practise counting, writing and reading numbers to 20 as often as possible. In English we will be immersing ourselves in a range of texts about the sky and sea to ensure we continue to develop the phonic skills needed to read and write sentences. Reading continues to play a vital role in our learning and we hope to broaden the children's experience of authors and genres.
*We have PE every Tuesday (please make sure kit is named).

*Children are expected to read every day. Children will collect gems in their treasure chests every time they read at least three times a week :) Keep reading!
*Children are expected to read their tricky word and sounds mats and then tick them off when they read them in a book.
