Spring Term 2019
Let the next 6 week term begin and boy do we have lots of fun and exciting things planned!
This term the big question is ‘Am I a good friend…?
We will be reading both ‘fictional’ and ‘non-fiction’ books such as: Mr Wolf’s Pancakes, The Runaway pancake, alongside informative books such as recipe books. We will also we reading and learning about the Easter story at the end of the term.
As you can see lots of our work this half term is around food….which is always a favourite! 🙂
Curriculum overview Spring TERM 2 (2019)
**Reminder Parents evening slots available on the school website- Monday 18th and Thursday 21st. I look forward to seeing you soon.
Finally I would like to thank you for thinking of us with lots of surplus household things, toys and craft materials thus giving us an opportunity to recycle unwanted or old items. It really is appreciated and certainly does make a difference. I have also been asked if there is anything else we require and so I have compiled a list, if you or other family members do have any of these items they would be greatly received.
As always, if you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact me and thank you for your continued support.
Miss Sue Griffiths
Welome to Reception
Welcome back everyone! I sincerely hope you have all had a super Summer holiday.
The first few weeks of term will be spent practicing routines. The children will be getting used to the classroom set up and daily ‘Must do’ tasks. Our first topic is the ‘Mr Men and Little Miss’ book collection written by Roger Hargreaves. We will look at issues related to the different characters in the stories e.g. Mr Happy- discussing ‘What makes us happy?’.
In Maths we will be focussing on counting forwards and backwards and recognising numbers 1-10. We will be identifying the names and differences between 2D and 3D shapes.
Our creative work is going to be based around ‘Autumn’- we will be doing lots of printing, colour mixing, cutting and sticking!
We plan to go for a walk up Stoney Hill and identify ‘Signs of Autumn’ later in the term.
Our phonic focus work is based around the RWI scheme. Please look at the website to familiarise yourself with how we teach phonics.

The children in turn will bring ‘Ellie the elephant’ home. There will be a book for you to write about her adventures. In the book you can include photographs or your child might like to draw pictures and write a little bit.
Children will be given a learning log on a Thursday- If possible returned by the following Tuesday. (See information sheet in front of homework log book)
Initially the children will bring home a book of their choice home for you to read to them in their book bag every Wednesday. PLEASE feel free to write in your child’s reading log to record their response to the book.
