Reception

 

Welcome to the second half of Summer Term! 

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. 

Tigris class is taught by Mrs Avison-Williams, Nile class is taught by Mrs Riani, the Reception classes are supported by Mrs Josipovic, Ms Mariam, Mrs Tadman & Mrs Coulstock.   

 

Key Times 

Homework 

‘Dip and Do’ – At the end of each half term, the children will be given tasks that link to the different areas of the Early Years curriculum. Please have a look at each task and complete as many as you can during the half-term break! Please bring in the homework the first week of the new half term so that the children can celebrate their work with their class. 

Please ensure you are reading with your child every night as this is crucial for the development of their literacy skills. Families are able to loan books from the library trolley located just inside the Reception Area by the gate. 

PE  

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

Trips/Visits 

This half-term we hope to experience a visiting Space-themed theatre workshop. We will also have our own ‘Mini Olympics’ (sports day) and end of year Celebration Assembly. 

 

Key Times 

In EYFS, children will start at 8:40am and will be dismissed at the end of the day at 3:25pm.  

 

 

What are we learning?  

This term’s topic is ‘Journeys’ with a special focus on Space Travel. 

The children will continue to participate in small group and whole class discussions. They will be learning to express ideas and feelings about their experiences as well as offering explanations for why things might happen. 

In literacy, the children will continue to engage with and discuss a range of texts. They will further refine their formation of lower-case and capital letters. The children will be writing sentences which are phonetically plausible containing some red words, using capital letters and full stops.  

In Maths, the children will be doubling numbers to 10. They will explore sharing and grouping before moving onto recognising even and odd numbers. The children will extend their understanding of spatial reasoning through the exploration of maps. They will also revisit and extend their understanding of number patterns and the relationship between numbers. 

The children will be developing and refining their climbing and balancing skills. They will learn to use a range of ball skills with accuracy, control and precision. The children will also learn to use a range of small tools with greater proficiency. 

The children will further develop their abilities to negotiate space and obstacles safely.  They will have opportunities to demonstrate & develop their strength, balance & coordination skills. The children will refine the many different ways of moving energetically such as running, jumping, dancing, hopping, skipping and climbing. 

The children will talk about the lives of people & their roles in society, we will focus on the astronaut Mae Jemison. The children will explore and learn about the similarities and differences between contrasting environments. They will also have the opportunity to explore and learn about the similarities and between things in the past & now. 

The children will use materials, tools and techniques, experimenting with colour, design, texture, form and function. The children will have the opportunity to use props and materials when role-playing characters. They will also have the opportunity to perform songs, rhymes and stories with others.  

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. This is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses across the EYFS curriculum. If your child is not yet able to read, please read to them. 

 

Additional Information  

In Reception, we are keen explorers and spend lots of time outdoors. We will go out in all weathers! As the weather gets hotter & sunnier, please ensure your child comes to school wearing sun cream. Please also provide them with a sun hat so that they can enjoy our outdoor space safely.  Please ensure all of your child’s belongings have their name in/on them.  

If you have any questions, please talk to Mrs Avison-Williams or Mrs Riani.
