Class 2 Curriculum

Reception

Read Write Inc

The children will take part in a 20-30 minute phonics session (Read Write Inc) each day, in which they will learn new sounds and begin the process of segmenting, blending and writing. For more information regarding Read Write Inc please click link below:

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYx1CyDMZSc

We will continue to develop phonic knowledge through building fluency and recognition of set 2 (pink group) and set 3 (orange group) sounds through repetition, word reading and games, as well as following the 5 day plan set out in each session to build fluency and expression in your child’s reading.

We are continuing to focus on letter formation, including writing on the line and forming ascenders (tall letters: t, f, h, d, k, l, b) and descenders (g, p, y, j, q) correctly. By applying the rhymes and using the handwriting templates assigned on Google Classroom, children will have parity between school and home.

After a successful half term carrying out Talk for Writing, we can’t

wait to start our next text. This half term our text will be

based on What the Ladybird heard/The very hungry Caterpillar.

Fun with Numbers | Numeracy activities, Math activities, Numbers preschool

 Maths

Maths (Reception) – To 20 and beyond.

During the summer term we will continue to practise and consolidate these key skills - Subitising (opportunities to instantly recognise small quantities by playing games using a dice, dominos, and bingo games) counting, sorting and matching and comparing and ordering. We will explore numbers past 10 and their value. The use of 10’s frames, numicon and the Numberblocks will continue to play a vital role in supporting the children’s understanding.

Physical Development

P.E we see us beginning to learn basic Ball Skills, throwing, catching and passing using accuracy and control.

 

 Religious Education

In R.E we will be exploring the questions ‘Where do we belong?’ (Christianity & Islam). The children will learn to:

  • re-tell religious stories making connections with personal experiences
  • share and record occasions when things have happened in their lives that made them feel special
  • recall, simply, what happens at a traditional Christian infant baptism.

Theme: In The Garden

Our Understanding of the World/Geography/Science unit will explore:

  • outdoors managing our class allotment and hopefully tasting our own produce later this term.
  • exploring plants and flowers in the school grounds and searching for minibeasts.
  • engaged in role play which is currently an animal rescue centre and will later become a garden centre. Children will have opportunity to learn about different plants and animals, how to care for them in a fun and creative way with lots of enriching language social opportunities and cross-curricular links.
  • looking at animals in different environments, for example minibeasts, pets, farm and wild animals.

 

In Computing the children will begin to apply prior learning of coding and debugging by physically inputting an algorithm into a Codapillar.

 

In Class 2, we will partake in a weekly Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) activity during 'Forest Friday'. The children will experince a wealth of activities linked to all of their subjects. Watch out for photos on Twitter and on our webpage.

Our knowledge organisers summarise the learning that will take place.  They include the key knowledge and vocabulary that we want our pupils to learn by the end of Reception. Each half term a newsletter will be sent out with more information on your child's learning for that half term.
