Welcome to Reception


Overview- Spring Term


We will continue with our phonics teaching. Your children have been grouped based on their ability, and will be taught phonics skills which are relevant to their needs.

We will be reading texts based on the different festivals which occur during the Spring Term, including

  • Valentine’s Day
  • Chinese New Year
  • St David’s Day
  • St Patrick’s Day
  • Easter

We will also begin teaching your children how to write sentences, using the correct conventions – capital letters, finger spaces and full stops.



We will continue teaching your children how to count accurately and consistently in a variety of different contexts – actions, objects which cannot be moved, counting out – alongside recognising and forming the correct matching numerals.

We will be exploring 2D and 3D shapes, learning their names and mathematical properties. We will also be looking at different ways of measuring objects by weight, length, height or capacity.


Understanding the World

Our main focus for the Spring Term will be exploring the changes which happen to our environment during this season. We will also be looking at different festivals which may be celebrated in different cultures, such as Saint Days, Chinese New Year and Easter.



Our Theme lessons are very much based on our observations of your children’s interests and needs. This changes on a weekly basis. If your child has a particular interest, please let us know and we can incorporate that into our planning.
