Welcome to Year R: 
Wren and Robin 


Welcome back! 

Welcome to year R! We hope you find the information below useful as your child continues their learning journey with us! This information will help you support your child at home with the organisation of their week and their learning at home. 

Key Times 


Homework will be set every half term. Your child will be asked to work on a number of projects, designed to enrich the learning taking place in school. This approach to homework has been designed to enable you and your child to work together in a creative way and to develop a love of learning. Please see the homework document for Summer 2. Homework is due on- Monday 8th July.   


In year R, PE day is Monday morning. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit on these days. Please ensure you REMOVE all earrings on a Monday. Please ensure ALL PE kit is named.  



Key Times 

The school gates open at 8:30 in the morning, the children are invited into school from 8.45am. In EYFS, children will be dismissed at the end of the day at 3:15pm.   










Read it 

Research it 

Make it 

Please read some of your favourite stories that we have shared in Reception this year. Can you Make a ‘Top Ten’ list and tell us why you like them. Here are a few reminders…  

Oh No George 

Naughty Bus  

Pirates Love Underpants  

Jack and the Beanstalk  

Teeny Weeny Tadpole 

We are learning all about ‘changes’ this term. Can you research changes that happen in animals, people, or materials… You could choose a frog, butterfly or you! Alternatively, you could experiment with food and think about the changes that happen. 

This term we will be talking about different life cycles. Can you make your own? A Tadpole to a Frog. A Caterpillar to a Butterfly... can you think of any others? This could be 3d or you could make a poster. 


Practise it 

Write it 

Design it 

In Year One you will continue to do lots of fabulous writing and counting. Please continue to practise the correct letter formation and write these letters on lines. Can you count to 100 and back from 100? Can you start on any given number? 

As we talk about changes, we will be looking at changes in stories. Have you ever heard of the Three Little Wolves and The Big Bad Pig or Prince Cinders? Can you write your favourite story and change some characters? You could turn this into your very own book to share with your friends and your new teacher in Year One. 

Now that you have written your amazing story. Can you design the front cover? Think about how you can make it exciting to invite readers! 

A note to parents, 

Over the course of this half term please work with your child to complete the above. Each of the activities has been designed to support, enhance and enrich an aspect of the curriculum. We are looking forward to seeing the results of your work together. Thank you!  


What are we learning? 

This term our topic is ‘Changes’, we are very excited to kick start this topic off by having our very own caterpillars in class to watch them change into beautiful butterflies! 


The books we will be reading are:  

The Hungry Caterpillar 

Egg to Chick 

Teeny weeny tadpole 


We will talk about and research the different changes that happen in animals, people and materials. We will have the opportunity to role play in Mr Brown’s classroom in the Bug Laboratory or watch potions being made in Miss Week’s Potions Lab. The children will also have many opportunities to develop skills in the Home Corner outside, exploring human changes. This term we will use narratives to create our own stories and use different props and objects to spark our imaginations! 

In Maths children will learn how to count in 10's, 5's and 2's, we will also look at how to create tally charts. Children will be looking at length and distance by using a variety of resources and make predictions about what they can see. They will look at time and learn the skills to read the clock clockwise and put the numbers in order to 12.  

This term children will continue with handwriting to practice and develop their letter formation. They will continue to take part in daily reading and phonics.  



How can I help at home? 

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 10 minutes with you, it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school.
