Reception 2022 - 2023

Mr Hill

Welcome back!

We hope you have all had a brillian Christmas break and are ready for another busy half term!


We will be continuing with our phonics programme Sounds~Write, introducing more new sounds in the coming weeks. The children will continue to take Phonics books to share at home. These books have been read daily in school and they match the focus sounds that week.


Our new focus story this half term is Naughty Bus by Jan and Jerry Oke. We will spark the children's interest unwrapping a present just like in the story and discuss our own bus adventures. We will follow the Naughty Bus's journey and explore the sites and sounds of London. The children will be able to take on the roles of driver, passenger and tourist in their London Bus role play area. 

Naughty Bus: Oke, Jan: 9780954792114: Books



In Maths this half term we will be looking at numbers to 10. We will spend lots of time counting, ordering and manipulating to develop a deep understanding. We will also be learning about positional language and moving onto more complex platterns. Listen out for the children singing Banana, Banana, Meatball a few weeks into the new half term!


Below you will find a video explainig the importance of early number sense. Please take a look for an insight into what happens in school as well as ideas of things you could do when using numbers at home.
