Welcome to Reception

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to Miss Cooke or Mrs Schofield in school or by contacting us on the email link at the bottom of the page.
Our topic this half term is...
"How high is the Beanstalk?"
Our main text is Jasper's Beanstalk! We will retell this story using a story map and begin to innovate it by changing characters in the story.
We will also explore the stories Jack and the Beanstalk and Shh! We will continue to get better at writing using sounds we have learnt in phonics. Our captions will have finger spaces and we will get better at writing tricky words. In maths we will focus on language of addition and subtraction and finding which number is one more or one less. We will also develop vocabulary related to measurement, height, money and shape.
We have a busy half term ahead. Watch this space for progress of our planting projects!

On Monday 5th February Reception children visited the Louisa Centre in Stanley to take part in a multi skills Jack and the Beanstalk session. It was fantastic and we were all tired out afterwards!

Parents and carers were invited to a 'Whatever Next' themed workshop in January (Article 5). This was based on our text for this half term and started with the children performing the story. We then took part in a range of activities including painting rockets, drawing what we might see from a rocket and acting out the story. On the 8th and 9th of February parents and carers were invited to a love themed workshop to take part in Valentine activities.
Take a look at the photos below.
Every Friday morning we take part in a forest school session with Veronica from Real Adventure Through Sport. We take art in lots of activities all relates to a topic. This half term the topic is based around the story 'Ridiculous' which is about a tortoise named Shelly. We are exploring tools and learning how to use them safely (Article 19).
Take a look at the photos below to see what we have been up to.
