Reception Class

Summer Term 1 


This term we are learning all about space! The children will have lots of opportunities to play so who knows what they be doing in space and who is lucky enough to come with them!! We will be travelling in our rockets to the moon and looking at how else we can get around in our transport unit.


In English this term we will be learning about and retelling the story ‘Whatever Next’ and thinking about travelling to space! We will be thinking about we would take with us to space, who we would take and what we might do. We might even receive some special post from our favourite Baby Bear! We will also be looking at the story of the 'Hundred Decker Bus' and where we have been or could go on a bus.


In Maths we are going to be exploring 3D shapes and thinking about how we can describe and sort these shapes into groups. This might even involve shapes going down a slide! Baby Bear keeps hiding in our classroom with his rocket, I wonder if you can tell me where he is everyday?


We are going to be talking about our families this term. We will be sharing pictures of our loved ones and asking questions about the photos. Our friends mean a lot to us in reception so we are exploring what makes a good friend and what happens if we see one of our friends sad or lonely.


Please see the guidance at the bottom of the page for phonics.

Phase 2/3 Phonics


Each week we introduce new sounds to the children one at a time. We recap all the sounds we know each day and use the sounds to help us in our writing. Please see the parent video below on how to articulate each phoneme and support your child at home with their sounds.
