Dear Parents,

We hope you all had a lovely half term holiday.

Our topic this term is Traditional Tales, which will include stories and art and craft activities.

PE in Reception is still on a Tuesday afternoon and Smokey Row is on a Thursday. Please ensure that the children have the appropriate clothing and footwear in school on these days. It is also essential that all items are named!

In Literacy, we will be comparing traditional tales, learning oral stories, making story maps and having a go at story writing.  In phonics we continue to focus on the application of phase 3 sounds and key words in writing.

In maths we will be applying our knowledge of numbers to 20 to practical problem solving, particularly in relation to weight, capacity, addition and subtraction.

As part of our understanding of the World, we will be thinking about celebrations such as Chines New Year and Easter and looking at the way in which these are celebrated around the world.

In Cookery we will be making gingerbread men, Easter nests and eating with chopsticks.

Kindest Regards,

Mrs Unsworth and the Reception team
