Spring 2

Hope you all had a nice half term.

Our topic for this half term is Traditional Tales. We shall be focusing on the following texts;

  • Jack and the Beanstalk
  • Jasper’s Beanstalk
  • The Ugly Duckling
  • The Elves and the Shoemaker

Now the weather is improving, we are looking into the possibility of organising a local trip to Burgess Park to look for the ducklings and swans in Week 3 or 4 of this half term. If you would like to support on this trip, please contact a member of the Reception team.

In maths, we shall be focusing on numbers up to 20. Please practise adding and subtracting using practical objects with your child.

In phonics, we are recapping the Phase 3 sounds and beginning to write simple sentences, using and applying our phonics knowledge.

Also, please remember about the importance of reading at home and recording in the home school diaries. Your support can make such a difference.

Finally, here are some key dates for your diaries;

  • Friday 3rd March – World Book Day
  • Wednesday 29th March – Easter Bonnet Parade
