Reception

Welcome to Reception!

Welcome to the start of a new school year! We have a really busy schedule ahead of us and we're looking forward to learning lots of new things.  

 

Our work will focus around two topics. Our first topic is 'A Better World' with a special focus on litter in Britannia Village and around our classroom. The children will have the opportunity to speak to a guest speaker from the council to see how we tackle litter in our area. The second topic is 'A day in the life of...' where we will be learning about the different jobs people do in our community. We will also be inviting parents in to speak about their jobs.

 

In English, we will be reading, learning and acting out different stories during Talking Tables sessions. We will also introduce 'Talk for Writing' sessions where children will learn the story of 'The Little Red Hen.' We will welcome parents one afternoon each week to help children with various Talk for Writing activities. A timetable will be sent home shortly to confirm the day and time of these sessions.

 

In Maths, we will begin with number work and will be learning all about numbers up to 10. We will also be learning about 3D shapes and their 2D surfaces. Finally we will learn about length, weight and capacity and how to compare them.
