Welcome back to your child’s final term in Reception! Where has the time gone?
This term we will spend the first couple of weeks finishing off the dinosaur topic, moving on to learning about plants and growth for the remainder of the half term. After half term our topic will be Amazing Animals.
In phonics, we will be revising phase 3, practising blending and segmenting to read and write words. As we move on to phase 4, there are no new sounds to learn. We will develop the children’s learning by teaching longer words and sentence writing. Our writing will often reflect the topic which we are studying. We will continue to learn to read and write tricky words and high frequency words. Please continue to support your child with reading at home. We encourage you to write a comment in their reading diary to let us know how they have got on at home.
In maths we are now learning about the numbers 0 to 20, focusing on the numbers 10 to 20 in particular. We will look at how numbers are made, for example 11=10+1 or 11=2+9. We will move on to ordering and solving problems involving addition and subtraction including money. We look at sharing and doubling numbers. We will continue to explore shapes, measuring and time.
In RE we will be exploring how Jesus appeared to his special friends and prepared them for His Ascension to heaven and Pentecost. We will be moving on to learn more stories that Jesus told and that we can learn from.
We are looking forward to a sunny summer term and getting the children all ready for year 1!
