Curriculum Reception


Whatever next 




What are we learning this half term?


Space (Whatever Next!) and Christmas


The children have shown a great interest in space so we are following their interests. One of the

stories that we are looking at is Whatever Next! We will be flying to the moon in our role play area

and building spaceships outside!

With Christmas coming up we will be beginning to think about our Christmas lists and preparing for

our Christmas Nativity!





We are continuing with Pase 2. You will have noticed the packs coming home with the phonemes we

are learning each week. We have given you books and a pencil if you wish to help the children

practice writing these letters too. The book is a journal and just for your child to practice. They

might want to show you that they can write words now!





Reception have enjoyed beginning their Mastery journey in Maths.We may have only looked at 1, 2

and 3 but we have covered lots of concepts! The children's reasoning skills are growing every day

and they are beginning to speak in full sentences when answering questions. When looking at each

number, we have been watching Number Blocks. These episodes can be viewed on iPlayer and

YouTube and are great at showing stories and songs about each number.


#30 Menu, 100 Reading Challenge and book bags


Thank you for all of your hard work in your learning logs! Please keep on with the #30 menu

and the reading challenge. We have been adding work from the learning logs on our Home

Learning Display. The children enjoy looking at this when they are in class, especially when

they see their work being celebrated.

Some children have begun to ge decodable books as well as library books. Please make

sure you comment in their reading records so that we can change them. An adult will read

with the children once a week and their book will be changed. We use this time to listen to

them read and ask questions to ensure they have understood what they have read. This is

something which you can help at home with and in some of the books there are handy

hints at the beginning and end of the books
