Welcome to Reception 

 

We have had a busy and exciting term in reception.

In our topic on Space we learnt about the different planets and what life is like in space. We made our own space rockets from junk materials and made alien masks. 

 In our topic on Birthdays we looked at how we  celebrate birthdays and some of us brought in photographs of our past birthday celebrations. We then focused on getting ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus. We also learnt about Advent and had an R.E. day that focused on the  four words associated with the season of Advent- Hope, Peace, Joy and Love. We finished with a Nativity play.

We have now finished Phase 2 in phonics and will be starting Phase 3. We are continuing to learn to read our high frequency words.

In our writing we have made lists of food we would take to the moon with us, made labels for parts of a rocket and wrote about the Nativity story. 

Our numeracy work this half term has included looking at and making lots of different patterns and doubling and halving numbers. We have also concentrated on sequencing and recognising numbers to 15 and beyond. 

In R.E. we have been talking about Families and Christmas. 

 

Our next main topics will be Night and Day and Chinese New Year.
