Welcome to the Spring Term! Miss Hickman and I are very much looking forward to continuing the great work the children have been dong and sharing this with you and your child over the coming months.  We have an exciting and busy term ahead of us, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to us.


In our Literacy lessons we will be concentrating on our applying our phonic knowledge that has been taught in our Read Write Inc sessions. We will learn how to say a sentence and listen to the sounds in words. The children will learn how to hold a sentence in their heads and apply their knowledge of sounds to write simple words and sentences.  The children will have the opportunity to write in many different forms and genres, for example,lists, labeling, stories, facts etc. 


This term we will continue using White Rose Maths resources to help us recognise numbers 1-10 and their values. We will also learn how to add and subtract groups of objects. 

The children will learn to recognise 2D and 3D shapes and talk about their properties. 

We will investigate pattern and try to continue repeating patterns, as well as discussing positional language and using the correct vocabulary. 

Understanding of the World:

This term we will be learning about our families and the environment in which we all live.

The children will discuss what a family is and who is in their family, as well as discovering facts about the local area in which they live.

We will also look at our lives now and the lives of people in the past - this links with our topic about castles. 

We will look at different celebrations and the traditions linked to these, for example, Chinese New Year, Mothers Day and Easter

We will also be thinking about different materials in the environment and sorting and experimenting with these. The children will learn about the different seasons with the focus being on Spring this half term.

 Expressive Arts and Design:

The children will have the opportunity to use a variety of materials in order to be creative and represent their own ideas using paint, collage and junk modelling.

They will also experiment with instruments and the different sounds they make.

The children will take part in weekly music sessions, singing and experimenting with sounds.

 Ways you can help your child:

  • The children will continue to bring home their ’Phoneme book’ each day with a new sound that will be added. Please share this book with your child in order to support the learning of these sounds.
  • Encourage your child to form letters correctly and ‘have a go’ at writing independently, simple words and captions.
  • The children will continue to bring a reading book and reading record home once a week. Please read with your child at home and record how you feel they have read.
  • We will introduce phonics and maths club sessions, as well as a parent drop-in session to discuss reading and phonics support at home.. A letter will be sent home with more information.
  • Reception have their P.E lessons on a Friday. Please ensure your child has their full P.E kit on this day (white t-shirt, black shorts, black pumps).

Thank you


Miss Wall (Reception Class Teacher)
