Welcome to Term 3 in Reception!


The Reception team are Miss Durham, Mrs Newth, Mrs Easton and Mrs Jones.


We are very excited to welcome the children back for another brilliant term of learning at Birdwell. Our topic for this term is called: 'Supertato and the Birdwell Superheroes' and is based on the Supertato series of picture books by 

Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet.


This term the children will continue with their phonics learning - consolidating the sounds we have already learned, writing short captions and sentences, and working on their reading both in class and with their reading scheme books. We will move on to learning diagraphs and also more of our Reception sight words which you will find at the back of the phonics booklet (words on vehicles). The children will continue to work on lots of exciting activities based on all seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum in their small groups, and also experience lots of play-based learning.


Please remember our doors are always open and Miss Durham and Mrs Newth will be around following every pick up session if you would like to talk about anything.
