Take a look at our topic medium term plan by clicking on the link below. If you have any questions or queries regarding the planning then please feel free to come and see myself or one of the Reception team.
Reading- The children should be reading at home 10 minutes every night. Please record when your child has read in their reading diary. They could read their guided reading book (the book they read in a group at school) or a book from home. The key to reading is little and often.
'Reading Caterpillars' will be given out at the Curriculum Meeting. Please practise segmenting and blending consonant, vowel, consonant (CVC) words with your child daily.
Our topic words to learn at home and at school are:

Forest School- The children will have the chance to go on nature walks, minibeast hunts and explore the Forest School area every Tuesday morning with Mr Bennett. Children should come to school on a Tuesday wearing tracksuit bottoms and their school uniform tops. Please ensure they have waterproofs in their book bags each Tuesday and a pair of wellington boots to be kept at school. It is also a good idea to supply extra dry socks in their book bags just in case! Forest school starts on 11th September.
PE- We will be doing PE on Wednesday afternoons but PE kits should remain in school at all times. The children will be doing Gym and Dance in the community hall. Please ensure that everything that comes into school is CLEARLY LABELLED. PE sessions start on 12th September.
