Year: Reception

Week beginning: 

26 .2.2024 

Literacy 

We will be reading:

On Sudden Hill by Linda Sarah

We will be reading the story and discussing friendships. We will be acting out parts of the story and discussing how the characters feel, linking this to zones of regulation. We will be writing sentences about the story using finger spaces and full stops. 

Phonics

We will spend this half term reviewing the graphemes that we have learnt so far so that we can apply them to our reading and writing. This week:

er air 

We are focusing on using our knowledge of graphemes to spell, especially longer words such as rabbit and ladder 

We will continue to learn the tricky words and you can find these on tapestry for your use. 

Please see the Little Wandle website for further help on supporting your child in phonics: https://www.littlewandlelettersandsounds.org.uk/resources/for-parents/

Maths

In Maths we will be exploring addition using the language part, part and whole. For example 8 is the whole and the parts are 5 and 3.  

Understanding the World

As artists, we will continue to learn about land art and transient art. We have been finding out about Andy Goldsworthy. 

In PSHE, we are focusing on ‘Healthy Me’ 

This week we are thinking about nutritious and not so nutritious food so that we can learn to make sure that our bodies have everything they need. 

 In RE over the next few weeks we will be thinking about Spring festivals. 

This includes The Persian new year, the festival Holi and Easter. 

We will be thinking about how they are celebrated and what they mean to us.

In history we are thinking about chronological order, this week we are thinking about the chronology of this year: what we have done, what we have worn and what has changed. We will continue to look at baby photos. 

Home Learning

Home learning: We will be sending home activities related to the graphemes that we have been looking at in phonics this week.

Reminders

Please make sure all school bags, lunch boxes and water bottles are clearly named.

Library Books We  will be sending home a ‘Love of Reading’ book that your child has selected from the library every Friday.

Please enjoy reading this book to your child and talking around the content and the illustrations.

Your child is not expected to read this book to you. We will be sending home reading books that have been carefully matched to their stage in phonics later in the term.  

Please return your child’s yellow reading diary on a Monday each week. Many thanks for your comments and updates.
