Art work inspired by Lucy Arnold!
Welcome to our Reception class page! Each term this page will be updated with our current learning and give you some ideas about how to support your child at home with their reading, writing and maths.
Our research question this term is 'Do we all like the same art and music?' and our concepts are transformation and diversity! We are focusing on Art and Music and will be learning about Bridget Riley and trying out some of her marbling techniques. We will be listening to 'The Nut Cracker' by Tchaicovsky and 'No Place Like' by Kerry Andrew. We will be watching some Butterflies transform in the classroom and learning how to care for them. Our class trip is to the Tropical Butterfly House in June.
In phonics we will be learning the Phase 3 phonemes and practising blending and segmenting with them. We will be reading lots of stories this term and our work will be based on these:
The Slug in Love by Rachel Bright
We're Going on a bear Hunt by Michael Rosen
Peace at Last by Jill Murphy
My Mum and Dad make me Laugh by Nick Sharrat
Jack and the Beanstalk - Traditional Story
A Song of Gladness by Michael Morpugo
Lucy's Picture by Nicola Moon
My Museum By Joanne Liu
In Maths we will be working on automatic recall or number bonds to 5 and learning about odd and even numbers.

Helping at Home
It is vital that you aim to read with your child at least three times per week. Each child has a reading book, words cards to learn and a phonics game to play in their reading packet. Please write a short comment in your child's reading book. We are completing a class reading challenge and points are gained for each child when they have read at home.
Our library day is Friday. Please send your book back to school each week so that your child can choose a new one.
Our PE days are on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please send your child to school in their PE kit on those days. This term we are listening and moving to music from all around the World. We are learning to travel safely on gymnastics equipment and we are learning to play different games with balls in games.
