Beatrix Potter Class


Welcome to Reception! We are very proud of how the children are settling into school. 

This half term our topic will be 'All About Me'. The children will be learning about the five senses, similarities and differences and families. Our text will be 'The Great Big Book of Families' which is brilliant! 

In maths we will practise counting and forming numbers to 10, counting out amounts and recognising one more and one less. We will also be learning about 2D and 3D shapes.  

In phonics we will begin to learn phase 2 sounds and use Jolly Phonics to support our learning. Below is a link to the songs: 

We are also begin to learn our tricky words. These are words that we can't sound out and just have to read by sight. When spelling them we use the letter names. We listen to the 'tricky words song' for phase 2. 

Here are the links below:

Phase 2:

We are encouraging the children to become more independent  at school. This includes; sorting what needs to go where in the mornings e.g. water bottles, reading books, snacks etc. and with getting themselves dressed. Please encourage this at home too.
