    Click on our logo to find out about our Reception Curriculum.

This term we are learning about our third theme Underground, Overground Wandering Free where we will explore different environments including rainforests  rainforest and the seaside. We will  identify the key features of these habitats and compare them to where we live and to colder climates.  We will explore the season Summer and think about holidays,  and compare them to holidays in the past.

Our chosen texts are Grandad's Island by Benji Davies and Anna Hibiscus's Splash by Atinuke.

Children will also have the opportunity to visit Twycross Zoo to experience animals in their environment.  

Children will continue to develop their social and emotional skills, leaning to share, take turns and develop positive friendships as well as preparing for transition times at the end of the year.  We will continue rewarding good behaviour choices through our new behaviour  system. 

Home Reading- All children in Reception have a clear communication folder which holds their reading diary and books. Children receive two books each week: an independent book marked with an 'I', which are books children should be confident to read without support and a supported book marked with an 'S', where there may be a few words that you may need to help your child with. Children will also choose a a class library book each week for you to enjoy sharing together. This one is ideal to further support your child with their comprehension skills.

Please return the communication folder  every Monday morning with the reading diary and two books so that they can be be returned to you on Tuesday afternoon. We ask that children read each  reading book on at least three days a week. Please make sure you clearly indicate in your reading diary that you have done this. There are also additional books shared on Oxford Owl so please see Evidence Me for details. 

PE - Reception have PE  on a Tuesday. Please send your child to school in their kit on these days. Please make sure all earrings are removed or covered with tape before school on these days.
