4-5 year olds

Welcome to the Early Years Foundation Stage - Reception classes.

In Reception this term, the children are all set to explore and discover! We will be investigating the animal life cycle, and how we care for living things, such as plants, pets and other people.   Our two story focuses over the half term will be ‘Rosie’s Walk’ and then ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’. The children will continue to use Talk for Writing as a framework for learning the stories and the tools they need to write.

Throughout our phonics learning, we are continuing to focus on the sounds we have learnt so far, as well as building our knowledge of sounds that are new to us. Children will be reading words, captions and sentences and talking about what they have read. We will continue to use picture clues to help the children and encourage the use of robot arms to help with blending and segmenting new words. Alongside this, we will be engaging children with lots of exciting opportunities for writing, so much so, they won’t even realise they are writing! This half term is a real opportunity to build on their phonic confidence and see their writing flourish.

In our Mathematics, we will be using the story ‘The Bad Tempered Ladybird’ as a stimulus for learning. The children will be investigating doubles, halves, number bonds to 10, time, positional language, measure, and symmetry. We will continue to embed their knowledge of number and counting, using resources that are familiar to them such as Numicon.
