Summer Term: Reception Newsletter

During this Summer Term, the topic for Reception is ‘On the Farm’. We have had some chicken eggs delivered and we’re anxiously waiting the arrival of the new baby chicks. We will be learning all about the lifecycle of baby chickens and how to care for them.  

 In literacy we are reading the book ‘What the Ladybird Heard’ by Julia Donaldson looking closely at the similarities and differences between the different animals living on the farm. We will be talking and writing about the role of a farmer and his busy day, looking after all the animals on his farm.

In maths we will continue to develop our number skills by solving word problems that include addition, subtraction, doubling and halving. The children will be counting in 2’s,5’s and 10’s. They will also be covering positional and directional language. The children will recognise and discuss the properties of both 2D and 3D shapes.

There is a new homework grid in their books. Homework is given out on a Friday and we encourage that children complete the given tasks to support their learning and to develop their independent skills ready for transitioning into Year 1.


We thank you for your continued support.

From all Reception Staff
