Welcome to the YR Spring Term  overview webpage


Reception Spring Term

This half term in Reception we are learning all about people with jobs that help others. We’ll be focusing on a different job, or hero, each week.

In Literacy our class animal will be getting into lots of scrapes such as getting stuck in a tree or feeling poorly. Luckily, the children will be learning to write labels and captions to send to different heroes each week to help out the class toy. We’ll be sending these to firefighters, vets and all sorts of helpers! (Who knows, we might even get a visitor or two!)

In Maths we practise our counting, ordering and subtraction skills with numbers to 15, and learn about comparing different weights and lengths also.

It is a creative term indeed! We will be doing a unit on Gymnastics, learning to jump, balance and travel on and around different apparatus.  By learning different joining techniques and exploring designing skills, we will be creating our very own emergency vehicle! And no term would be complete without an exploration of musical instruments, specifically looking at beat and rhythm.  

What a busy term we have! Please continue to support your child at home with our new targets to be found in learning diaries and also keep an eye out for some reading cards coming home in book bags soon!
