We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
Our topic this term is Transport, which will include stories and art and craft activities, as well as a trip to the Oxford Bus Museum.
PE in Reception is still on a Tuesday afternoon and Smokey Row is on a Thursday. Please ensure that the children have the appropriate clothing and footwear in school on these days.
In Literacy, we will be continuing phase 3 phonics focusing on blending and segmenting sounds in words, learning new digraphs and introducing trigraphs. Our major focus will be the application of phonics and key words in writing and learning to structure a sentence.
In maths we will be applying our knowledge of numbers to 20 to practical problem solving, particularly in relation to size, shape and measurement.
As part of our understanding of the World, we will be thinking about some of the properties of materials, looking at maps and talking about transport in relation to journeys.
We are hoping to arrange a visit to the Oxford Bus Museum this half term and will update you on arrangements for this over the next couple of weeks.
Wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year.
Mrs Unsworth and the Reception team
