Welcome to Reception
This term our topic is The Seaside
In Literacy we will be reading the story Grandma's beach . We will be looking at different types of postcards, and we will be writing out our own to send home to our families.
As a class we will be using talk partners, sequencing cards and buckets full of objects to create our own stories based on the book Billy's bucket.
In Mathematics, we are learning about repeating patterns, adding and subtracting single numbers, using number lines and objects to help us.
We are continuing to practice counting forwards and backwards to 20 and beyond. We are also continuing to count in 2's and 10's.
In our areas
In our shared area, we have created our own beach using sand, deck chairs and inflatables for the children to able to get an experience of the seaside. In our outdoor area we will be creating rocks pools, building our own sandcastles and designing our own flags and kites. The children will also have the opportunity to role play in our own ice cream parlour, fish and chip shop and souvenir shop.
Our trip to Sundown Adventure land
This term we have got an exciting trip to look forward to. The children will have the opportunity to go and experience the Smugglers cove, play on a pirate ship, build sand castles and meet pirates! They will also be able to explore the rest of the park and enjoy the story book village and the small rides it has to offer.
