Welcome to Clee class, our teachers are Miss Luke, Miss Lansley and Mrs Welsby.
This term the whole school theme is ‘Legacies and Achievements’.
In Reception our focus will on be ‘Superheroes’ and what it means to be a Superhero. We will be exploring fictional Superheroes using stories such as Super Daisy, Super Duck and Little Red Riding Hood and will then look at local Superheroes such as Police, Doctors, Fire Fighters that live and work within our community. We will also be learning about seasonal changes and the different cultural celebrations that take place such as Chinese New Year and Easter.
In Literacy this term we will be sharing a range of fiction and non-fiction books linked to our topic. We will be supporting the children to plan and write their own simple sentences and segment words to write. We will be focusing on using spaces between words and full stops at the end of a sentence.
We will continue to have a daily Letters and Sounds session where we will learn the Phase 3 digraphs (e.g. ch, sh, th, ee, ai, oo, oi, etc) and focus on blending sounds for reading.
We will also be having Big Talk sessions in Literacy which will focus on Communication and Language skills and talking in detailed sentences. The children will bring home a theme to talk to you about for some ideas before we have our Big Talk together in school.
The children will take part in Shared Reading sessions, which will focus on developing both phonic and comprehension skills. They will also have lots of opportunities to listen to stories and read individually.
In Numeracy we will be learning about addition and subtraction, beginning with 1 more and 1 less. Alongside our number work we will also be learning about shapes and how to use language to describe length, height, weight, time and position.
Things to Remember
