                                        Summer Term 2017


This term our theme is around homes now and in the past. We are holding a den building day on Friday12th May in aid of Save the Children. All children can wear their own clothes ( appropriate to den building) if they bring in £1 donation. We will be designing and building dens in our outside space using a variety of materials. It should be a fun day. We also continue to look at animal homes in this country and around the world. We will be going to Chester zoo on Wednesday 5th July so we can see some manmade animal homes for ourselves and talk about how important it is to look after and care for animals as pets or for a conservation project. Thank you to everyone who came to our Easter bonnet parade and tea party , we raised a £103 towards the cost of the coach for our zoo trip and we all enjoyed baking, taking orders, serving cakes and making hats.


We are all enjoying sharing books now and are beginning to use our phonic knowledge to write sounds, words and even sentences. It would be really good if we could practise writing at home too ,perhaps a little diary in our link books to tell us what you did at the weekend. Remember to bring in your reading folder every day

In maths work we are working with numbers , counting , more and less work and recognising figures. We are starting to use simple operations like addition and subtraction in practical activies with division and fractions in simple sharing games. We use practical equipment to help us learn and make maths fun. Maths is all around; can you use numbers at home ?


P.E is on a Tuesday and Thursday so please remember to bring in all kit including pumps and trainers so that we can go outside whenever the weather is nice. This term we will be working on team games and ball skills incorporating things like taking turns , sharing and being a good sport. We will need to continue to practise dressing ourselves including zips, buttons and shoes with laces please.

We are starting our final term in Reception and are working on our independence skills; remembering to look after our belongings , hang our coats up , dress ourselves , use our manners, listening skills and share with our friends.

Our transition day is on Wednesday 12th July with a picnic for all parents and children at 1pm and including activities, music and refreshments.. we can't wait!


Thank you for all your support.
