Summer 1 2024

Our topic this half term is 'Minibeasts'




Welcome to the Summer Term Reception Parents/Carers!

I hope you've had an enjoyable Easter break.

As we kick off the this  term, I want to extend a warm welcome to all of our Reception learners and hope you're eagerly looking forward to the educational journey we have in store in this final term.

We'll be engaging in our English and Maths lessons, along with a rich and diverse curriculum.


I encourage you to explore our Summer 1 Knowledge Organizer, which highlights some of the key concepts we'll be focusing on and teaching throughout this half term. Please make use of this tool when supporting your child's studies at home, as it will aid in strengthening their knowledge and retention of skills.


Phonics is the foundation for children beginning their reading journey. In Reception we follow the scheme created by Read Write Inc. Through Read Write Inc children can build on letter formation while learning to read.

The links below will expire on the  22nd April 2024. If you need them after this time please message me on classdojo.

Don't forget we have a letter of the day each day on our classdojo class story!
