Stars & Moon – Reception

Welcome to Stars and Moon Class

Our names are Miss Hanifin and Mr Wrigley and we are your child’s class teachers. In our class, the children have, Ms Galvin, Miss McCormack and Mrs Marinaro supporting us with our work too.

This half term we will be learning lots of new things. Our first topic is ‘Ourselves’ which will be followed by ‘Transport’. We will learning about our facial features and how we are unique. We will also explore different modes of transport, how we get to school and special landmarks we see in our local area.

In English we have started a great new text called ‘The Sleepy Bumblebee’. We will be learning and retelling this story using story maps and actions. We will then be writing our own version of a cumulative story based on the story of the ‘Sleepy Bumblebee’.

In Maths we will be focusing on numbers; recognising numerals to 10, ordering numerals counting groups of objects up to 10 and matching to numerals. We will be comparing groups of objects saying which has more or fewer. We will also be learning about 2D and 3D shapes; the language used to describe shapes.

Snacks and water will be provided throughout the day in reception. The children do not need to bring in a water bottle.

A few helpful reminders:

We have PE once a week. PE will be on a Thursday. Our PE hall session is shared between Moon and Sun Classes. Reception have their own outdoor space so physical activities happen on a daily basis. Children do not need a PE kit. They only need plimsolls for PE sessions.

Children must read and have their reading record signed every night.

Homework is due in on Wednesday. I will mark it and return it on Thursday.
