Welcome to Clee class, our teachers are Miss Luke, Mrs Kings and Mrs Owen.
Our whole school topic this term is ‘Take One Picture’. We have chosen the painting ‘Men of the Docks (1912)’ by the artist George Bellows. In Reception we will focus on ‘Me and My Family’ and the journeys that we make locally. Towards the end of the term we will be making and sending cards to people who are not with our families at Christmas time.
In Literacy we will be talking about starting school and the changes that we have made since we were babies. We will also look at what has changed since our own grownups were younger. We hope you will share your family photos and any childhood toys you may have with us.
We will be supporting the children to sequence familiar stories such as Kipper’s Toybox, Jolly Postman and The Enormous Turnip and encouraging them to discuss their content.
We will have a daily letters and sounds session where we will learn the Phase 2 phonemes (s, a, t, p, i, n etc.) and focus on blending sounds to read and write simple words.
In Numeracy we will be learning to recognise numerals to 20, count objects to 10 and beyond and to find 1 more and 1 less. We will also be exploring shape and beginning to use the mathematical names of 2D and 3D shapes.
Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design
We will be learning about the celebrations of Harvest, Diwali, Bonfire Night and Christmas. At Forest School we will be learning about hedgehogs and how to keep them safe as well as seasonal changes. We will also be cooking, creating self-portraits, printing with vegetables and exploring different role play activities.
The children will be bringing home their own reading books to share with you. Please support your child by discussing what you can see in the pictures, what you think will happen next and why. Please do let us know if you would like any support with this.
