Reception (Earth Class)

Welcome to Reception!

Dear Earth Class,


Happy New Year!

I hope you have all had a lovely and relaxing Christmas. I am really looking forward to meeting you and being your teacher this year. I can't wait to hear about your wonderful holidays. 


We are now in Spring term and I have been busy planning fun and exciting activities for you. Our P.E days are Monday (fortnightly) with Mr. Bell and Friday (weekly) with Mr Smith. Mrs Whalley will teach you on a Tuesday afternoon, lucky you! Also, Smokey Row will be on Thursday afternoons which I am so excited about.


Spring Topic: Fairy Tales

Christian Values: Endurance (Spring 1) and Forgiveness (Spring 2)


In English we will be making predictions, looking at traditional tales with a twist, writing labels, notes of advice and adverts. Also, exploring magical stories through through bubbles, oral re-telling and thank you letters.


In Maths we will learn and practise the following:

- Writing numbers to 10

- One more/less

- Recording simple measurements

- Counting irregular arrangements of objects

- Part - whole templates

- 2D and 3D shapes

- Number Bonds to 10 


In Phonics we will continue with Letters and Sounds - Phase 2 and 3.


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


In RE will be talking about the importance of celebrating the New Year by setting goals and giving thanks. In PSHE our core theme is ‘Relationships’. We will be thinking about what makes a healthy relationship and expressing our emotions and feelings in appropriate ways. In computing we will be using search engines and talking about the importance of online safety.


I hope you are excited as I am! See you soon.

Miss Miah
