Within Reception each child will be allocated a key worker. The role of the key worker is to carry out observations and sessions with your child as well as being responsible for your child’s learning journal. The key worker is there to get to know you and your child. Key workers work closely with the class teacher to support, assess and plan provision.
Our Curriculum – 2020-21
This half term we will be learning all about Colours and celebrations. We will focus on the main festivals of Bonfire night, Diwali, Hanukah and Christmas. We will begin to celebrate the seasons changing from Autumn to Winter as well as understanding how colour affects our moods and feelings. We will use the key books of Leaf man, Colour Monster and Mixed.
RWI – Children will continue to focus on learning the letter sounds and ‘special friends’ appropriate to their group. We will be continuing to develop our ability to blend words in ‘Fred Talk’ as well as beginning to read green word cards.
Maths – This half term our focus will be the numbers 5-10 using the Numberblocks episodes as our starting point. Children will begin to subitize numbers to 10, add and subtract numbers, learn 2d shapes and compare and order numbers using more and less.
Home learning expectations
Levelled reading books, Red word walls and home learning activities will be sent home in book bags on a Friday. These need to be returned to school on a Monday. Children will also receive RWI phonic activities that can be kept at home and used throughout the week.
