Spring Term 2

 

The weather is warming up and we are exploring growth and new life. Our reading, writing and spelling is progressing so much in class we should all be very proud of the hard work we are doing.

Our Curriculum

In Reception our play based program is designed to help children attain the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) goals appropriate for their age.

There are 7 main focus areas which include personal, social and emotional development, communication and language, mathematics, physical development, understanding the world, and expressive arts and design. 

Please click the link below to find out more information.

It is very important that your child is in school every day and we advise that you contact the school office if your child is absent for any reason, and that holidays are during school holiday time.

Religion 

In reception we are an active part of the school community. We attend an infant liturgy and hymn practice weekly. In the classroom topics that will be covered in our Religion lessons include:

Celebrating: People celebrate in church

Gathering: Parish family gathers to celebrate Eucharist

Growing: Looking forward to Easter

Other Faith: Islam

 

Phonics

 

Term we will be learning the set 2 and 3 sounds. These can be very tricky for the children because there will be 2/3 letters making one sound or the same letters for 2 different sounds. Please keep learning these with your child. Below is a list of the letters with the rhyme that we use to help remind us of our sounds. Retaining these is a vital process for the children to master as it is essential to help with reading, writing and spelling.

 

It is really important that children are learning to sound and write these correctly.

Jolly Phonics Letter Sounds (British English)

Listen to the 42 letter sounds of Jolly Phonics, spoken in British English. Each letter sound is clearly spoken twice, before an example word is given. Perfect for parents, teachers and children who aren't sure how to pronounce the letter sounds.

 

These are the 45 sight words for reception that we have been giving for spellings. Children should be able to read these by sight and spell them correctly.
