Summer 1 term in Reception is all about ‘Traditional Tales’.


Reading and Writing

Our stories will be Gingerbread Man, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Little Red Hen and Three Billy Goats Gruff. We will be practising our writing skills so we can write our own sentences and stories about the characters. 

Please listen to your child read every day for 10 minutes using the Oxford Owl website and your class login.

Each week we will allocate a reading book to your childs focus group. If your child can not remember their coloured group please email. This book should be repeated everyday to build fluency. They start each reading session by practising the speed sounds and tricky words.


Remember to keep practising the red words {tricky words}. These words are really important for your child’s reading and writing.



We now use the Read Write Inc approach to phonics. This is a structured system to develop your child’s phonic knowledge. It would be beneficial if you could continue to help your child to use their diagraphs in their writing and correct letter formation in their home learning books. Encourage your child to use the Read Write Inc rhymes in your home learning pack such as ‘slither down the snake’.

Tune in for daily Read Write Inc lessons these lesson are available for 24 hours. 

See weekly plan for your child's session. 

Flash cards for these rhymes are in the weekly resources.



We will be practising counting forwards and backwards and counting in 2s and 5s. We are learning to share and half objects and numbers.  We are learning about 3D shapes, how to describe them and looking for them in our environment.

 General Reminders

  • Please continue to read with your child every day and that their reading records are signed each time they have read a reading scheme book at home.
  • Please continue to complete the ‘Home Learning’ book activities.

Please choose one activity per week to complete. Once complete put the date on the sheet. Please help your child but do not do it for them.

  • Keep checking the website and class pages for any updates on home learning as lots of things will be added each week.
