Reception (Earth Class)

Welcome to Reception!



Dear Earth class,

I hope you had a lovely half-term and enjoyed the warm, sunny weather. Can you believe we are in our last term already?! We have so many exciting things to learn about, I cannot wait! Let's make the most of this term and have fun learning about minibeasts and we can start counting down the days till the summer holiday. I just want to say, I know this year has been tough and full of challenges but you have all been so amazing with your positive attitudes, excitement and energy. Let's do this, summer term here we go!


Summer Topic: Minibeasts

Christian Values: Hope


This half term, we will be ...

  •  Retelling storires, writing facts and looking and non-fiction books in English.
  • Exploring numbers 1-20, making patterns using shapes and adding and subtracting two single-digit numbers, doubling and halving in Maths.
  • Phase 3 and Tricky Words in Phonics.
  • Investigating plants and planting seeds and looking at the butterfly life cycle in Understanding the World.
  • Cricket in PE.


In our continuous provision we will have many activities linked to the Prime and Specific areas of Learning and Development indoors and outdoors. 


Another busy term for us! I hope you're excited as I am. See you soon.


Best wishes,

Miss Miah
