Reception RD 2020 - 2021

Class Teacher - Mrs Daffern 

Teaching Assistant - Mrs Whitehead



Our Curriculum - Summer Term

This term we will be exploring signs of spring through the story ‘The Extraordinary Gardener’.  We will plant our own seeds, care for them and observe them grow and change.  We will learn about different habitats and explore their similarities and differences when we read ‘The Storm Whale’.  We will learn about different types of holidays when we read ‘What The Ladybird Heard On Holiday’.  We will explore different countries through the text ‘Lyla And The Secret Of Rain’.

Through daily Phonics we will continue to apply our Phase 3 sounds in our reading and writing.  We will be reading simple words and sentences.  We will be applying our phonic knowledge to write words and begin to write simple sentences.  We will be practicing correct letter formation using the Read Write Inc letter formation rhymes.  We will be building the strength in our fingers to write through various fine motor activities.

We are using Maths Mastery to teach maths.  Each week we will concentrate on one number in which all mathematical concepts are explored.  This ensures deep understanding of number and promotes the ability to notice patterns and make connections.

Thank you for your continued support and here are some other key ways you can help from home:

  • Encourage correct letter formation using the formation rhymes.
  • Reinforce phonics sounds when your child is reading or writing or play games to spot sounds when out and about! Encourage you child to write simple sentences or lists.  Young children love writing for a purpose.  They could help you write a shopping list, some simple instructions or a brief letter to a relative or friend.
