Welcome to Term 5 in Reception!


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


We are very excited to share another term of learning with our wonderful Reception children. We are all missing the children and our days in class so much - but very excited to see and comment on lots of your home learning shared on Tapestry each week.

Our topic for this term is called: 'It's a Wonderful World'. We will be taking a learning journey all around the world with a pair of intrepid explorers, Explorer Eva and Explorer Ed! They will be giving the children some 'round the world ' challenges and making suggestions for some exciting home learning! 



This term the children should continue with their phonics learning - continuing with revising the sounds in Phase 3, consolidating the sounds we have already learned, writing short captions and sentences, and working on their reading. We would love the children to continue recognising and writing our Reception sight words (try a 'Sight Word Safari' by putting the words around the house for the children to recognise and read). You will find at the back of the phonics booklet (words on vehicles). Please continue with some maths learning on the 'Numbots' online platform - and any real-life maths problem solving at home would be simply amazing! We have provided some 'Shape, Space and Measure' challenges for you to have a go at at home!


The Term 5 home learning activities grid which was emailed out, based on all seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, gives suggestions for daily activities to go alongside the phonics/literacy learning.

At school the children would be experiencing lots of play-based learning and we look forward to seeing lots of lovely play and fun on Tapestry.


All our thoughts and best wishes are with you and all your families! Stay safe everyone.

Love from The Reception Teamxxx
