Welcome to Reception!
Early Years have had lots of fun this half term and have been working really hard. We have learnt all about Space, naming the different planets and finding out lots of interesting facts about them. We found out that Venus spins backwards and Jupiter is the largest planet. We talked about the moon and how the craters are formed and we also looked at similarities and differences between the Earth and the Moon.
We have also looked at different types of transport. The children had lots of fun creating their own bicycle pictures using paint and glitter.
In Physical Development we have been doing gymnastics, looking at our body movements and creating moments of stillness, the children have created some lovely routines.
In Mathematics we have learnt all about 3D shapes and created some wonderful models using these shapes. We have also been talking about time and the different seasons, looking at the signs of autumn, winter, spring and summer and how the weather is different in each of these seasons.
All children learn to read and write using synthetic phonics and at Abbey Meadows we use Optima Phonics as our programme of study. For more information please read our 'Parents Phonic Booklet' and explore our 'Useful Websites' list below.
