Literacy, Languages and Communication: 

  • This term, we are continuing to work through Phase 3 phonics sounds and letter recognition. We are using our knowledge of phonics to read and write!


  • During our writing sessions, we will be investigating well-known stories in order to explore new skills, such as comprehension, re-telling the stories through picture, dramatic re-enactment and eventually writing. One of the stories we will be reading is 'The Tiny Seed' by Eric Carle. 


  • We love learning new languages. Rydyn ni'n mwynhau dysgu Cymraeg yn yr Helpwr Heddiw bob dydd! And we are learning lots of new Spanish, we are muy ocupado! 


Mathematics and Numeracy

  • During the Summer Term we will be continuing to develop our number skills in our maths sessions. We are learning number bonds, addition and subtracting and lots more!


  • We will be working on wider numeracy skills such as shape, money and position in our inquiry sessions. For example, we have a flower shop in our role play area where we are using real money! 


  • We are also learning to count yn Cymraeg. We love practicing while singing Un, Dau, Tri banana! 


Inquiry-Based Learning: 

  • Reception's Summer Term inquiry is how living things need different conditions to survive and thrive.


  • There have already been loads of amazing ideas about where we would like to take the inquiry and cannot wait to see where the learning journey takes us.
