Welcome to Reception Class RH
Welcome back to the final term in Reception. Our new topic 'Over in the Meadow' will be focusing on Minibeasts and the great outdoors and we have lots of exciting activities planned. We have settled back to our original classroom and the children are enjoying our new Cafe role play area.
All the children made great progress last term and are becoming more confident readers and writers. This term they can really put what they have learned into practice. Please continue to read at home regularly. You should see your child beginning to read whole words by themselves and encourage your child to 'sound out' the letters and blend them together to read the words if they are unsure. You should also be seeing more confidence in their writing as they use the sounds they know to write words and sentences. Please continue to practise this at home as the more they practise, the more confident readers and writers they will become!
As the weather becomes warmer, please ensure that your child is dressed appropriately with a sunhat if necessary. Lots of our learning will be taking place outside this term and we always continue to free flow using the outdoor area in all weathers.
If you have any queries or concerns then please don't hesitate to come and talk to us.
& The Reception Team
Our topic this half term is ‘Over in the Meadow’.
Our work will be based around the following books: Superworm, (Julia Donaldson), The Very Hungry Caterpillar (Eric Carle) and The Very Busy Spider (Eric Carle). We will be learning about the minibeasts featured in the stories and observing our own real caterpillars as they turn into butterflies. We would also love for the children to observe the process of frogspawn/tadpoles/ frogs, so if anyone has a pond with frogspawn in their garden we would very much welcome some! Please see our topic web for more information and let us know if you can contribute to our topic in any way.
Don't forget check this page regularly for photographs and updates!

Please read with your child at home at least 3 times a week (daily if possible) and write a comment in their reading diary. Daily practice with an adult can increase their enthusiasm and help them progress even further.
