Topics we are learning about in Spring Term:

In Reception we have been very busy learning new sounds and numbers.  Our topic this term is ‘Into the Forest’ we are looking at animals that live in the forest, where they live and how they live during winter. We are reading the stories On Snowy Night and Owl Babies.


We are busy working hard learning our phonics sounds everyday and we love to use our sounds to read and write. Our target  this term is to be able to write a  simple sentences independently using a capital letter at the beginning and full stop at the end.


Religious Education:  

We have been learning about Moses and stories from the old Testament about him.


In our Maths lessons we have been learning a number a week, we have now counted up to 12. In our maths lessons we have been learning to add, subtract, tell the time and use money with our number of the week.


Muddy Mondays:

On our Muddy Mondays we have been sorting and classifying natural objects, measuring the height of the tree and we are busy planting in our area ready for Spring. Our next project is to make bird feeders and a 'bug hotel' to encourage God's creatures to come to our forest. Please remember your waterproof trousers, wellies, hats and gloves every Monday!
