SUMMER TERM 2019
This term we will be starting 'Weekly Spellings' of the reception words.
On Monday your child will receive 5 spellings to learn ready for the spelling test on Fridays.
The children can practice the words using the Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check method.
Your child will receive their special log in so that they will be able to access some extra reading books. The books will be changed weekly.
In the Foundation Stage our topics are on a 2 year cycle plan. This is to ensure progression, so that if your child attends our nursery and reception classes that they do not repeat the same topic coverage.
Our Topics for the next academic year are:
Autumn Term 1 2018: Families and Celebrations
Autumn Term 2 2018: Toys and Christmas
Spring Term 1 2019: People Who Help Us
Spring Term 2 2019: Food and Healthy Eating
Summer Term 1 2019: Mini Beasts and Life Cycles
Summer Term 2 2019: Journeys and Holidays
