Learning in Reception is based on enquiry questions for each half term, the children also take an active role in this process and this is displayed in the classroom.
Are you ready for an adventure?
During this term the children will be learning about how the different types of transport, journeys and places around the world. They will be sorting and classifying different types of transport. The children will be sharing their personal experiences of holidays and visits with their family. This will involve learning about the similarities and differences between places.
During the second half of the term, we will be learing about the seaside and take part in an exciting event called Livingstone by the Sea. The children have also requested to learn about space! To support the children with their transition to Year 1, they will take part in activities, such as visits to their new classroom.
There will be activities uploaded on Purple Mash for your child to complete on a weekly basis. You can also encourage your child to use Num Bots to support their Mathematical development. Please remember to share photos or email us about your child's achievements at home firstname.lastname@example.org

Reading at home tips
- Find a time that is good for your family routine each day to read the book.
- Encourage your child to talk about the pictures, characters and setting. There is a list of questions you can ask in the diary.
- Ask your child to make predictions about what will happen in the book.
- If your child comes across a word that is unfamiliar, talk about the meaning.
- Remember to sign the diary everytime you read at home, so they can get a sticker for their reward chart.
- Please watch the videos below to help your child apply their phonic knowledge to read the words.

This website contains a free e-book library, search for level 1+ or 2 books, we also use these in school. There is an option for your children to listen to the story as well as read it. I would recommend using one phonics book a week and read real books everyday. The children benefit from exploring a combination of fiction and non-fiction texts.
