Autumn Term 2 2021
This half term our themes will be Dinosaurs and Christmas
we will have an exciting Science lesson testing out whether dinosaurs were cold-blooded or warm-blooded creatures and making our predictions!
We will use small-world equipment to recreate our own role-play dinosaur scenes.
We will be making our own dinosaur fossils out of salt-dough.
We are practising our Christmas performance and will be learning songs and making lots of artwork to show you.
Through Read, Write, Inc. sessions the children have been taught Set 1 Sounds and we are now working towards being able to blend CVC words. These words are sounded out and blended back together. For example: c-a-t cat
Before we begin our Talk4Writing lessons next term, we are focusing on forming all letters of the alphabet correctly.
We are learning about the following themes this half term:
- Numbers 1-5 - representing, counting and composing
- Positional language such as 'behind' or 'next to'
- Repeating patterns
- 2D shapes
We like to link our maths learning to the Numberblocks where ever possible, over the years we have seen a great improvement in the children's understanding through watching the short clips. More activities for at home can be found here. https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbeebies/shows/numberblocks
If you do any learning or exciting activities at home, please upload it to Tapestry. It would be great to see your amazing work!
Please remember that a donation of £1 per week towards our Reception Fund helps us to buy extra resources to enrich our topic work, for example picnic food and cooking ingredients. (£7 this half term to be paid via parentpay) Last half term we bought new outdoor resources and new costumes for the role play area.
