Welcome to Reception Class



Summer Term 1 2021




Welcome to the Summer Term!  Our learning theme this half term is 'Mad About Minibeasts.' Eric Carle and his stories will inspire lots of our learning activities. We will be doing nature walks, bug hunts , using our Forest School and outdoor space to learn about mini beasts and developing our vegetable garden. We will have our own caterpillars in the classroom and also have our own chick eggs which we will be taking care of too.


We continue to work on using and applying our phonics through daily sessions. Reading and writing more fluently and independently and confidently will be a particular focus . We  continue to work hard in maths, working with number , numerical patterns and developing problem solving and reasoning skills during our daily maths challenges, as well as having lots of opportunities to explore, create and learn through continuous  play time.


We continue to spend lots of time outside and our classroom spaces continue to be well ventilated so please can you ensure children at school have a school jumper and it might be worth them wearing a vest or extra layers on chilly days. Also as the weather gets warmer please remind children to bring their sunhats and apply sun cream.


If you need to access home learning, activities, resources and planning will be uploaded to our  'Little Smarties' Webpage 

We will also continue to use our Class Group Webpage of on our school Facebook page  which is a super way to keep updated with Knightlow News and  our own class group page is a great way to show WOW moments  of learning that your child has done at home as well as a super way for us to keep you updated too. 


Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns or would like to offer your help or support in any way

Thank you 

Mrs Cathy Amos-Simpson 

Reception Class Teacher
