Reception - Butterflies

Welcome butterflies


We are mad about mini-beasts this half term

The children have been on bug hunts in our garden, they have taken such good care of the bugs. We have found out lots about insects and Mini-beasts and have written some facts about them. We have even made up our own story about a bug of our choice. 

Next, we move onto Jack and the bean stalk, we are going to be just like jack and plant some beans, we cant wait to watch them grow. We will look into measurement from the story of Jim and the bean stalk.

I wonder who's head/feet will be bigger yours or the giants?


We cordially invite you to join us in the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan. We are going to help celebrate their wedding the week before by ensuring we as a class are ready for a party. We are going to need crowns, decorations, invitations and much more to ensure it will be a fantastic royal wedding.


Please see the parent communication letter for next term below.


In phonics  the children are working hard in their groups, some of the children are working on their fluency as they blend the sounds (Fred in our head) to read and write words and sentences, whilst others will learn to blend orally (Fred talk), hear initial sounds and match sound to letter. To support your child please click on the link below and or visit the Read, Write Inc/Ruth Miskin website.

In mathematics we have looked at sharing fairly, this means that everyone has the same amount. We will also look into measurement with regards to Jack and the bean stalk.

t 0-10 and have begun to think about teen numbers.. We have worked out how to break numbers up and add them back together again, for example 2+2=4 but 3+1=4 also! Over the next few weeks the children will continue to look closely at the numbers to 20 and beyond, including 1 more and 1 less and number order as well as being encouraged to record their findings to show what they know, understand and can do with these numbers.


The children are continuing to develop their fine motor skills in  their Mole time and handwriting sessions.

Our P.E. this half term will be a mixture of gymnastics and maypole practise.

P.E kits - could you please ensure that all items of clothing are labelled.   Thank you.


Looking forward to the term ahead - Miss Till, Mrs Jenkinson and Mrs Foord
