Reception - Tawny Owls





Welcome to Tawny Owls Class.


Welcome back everyone! We are starting a new Summer term and looking forward to learning about Traditional tales.



 Our topic will have the title, 'Once Upon A Time.' We will be focusing on 3 well known stories; The Three Little Pigs, Jack and the Beanstalk and The Three Billy Goats Gruff. As we continue to develop key skills in our Literacy.  The stories will assist us in developing story language and how characters play a vital part in these stories. We will have lots of fun using puppets  and various resources  to assist us in our writing.


Throughout this term we will be continuing to link a 'word of the day' to our vocabulary and this  helps us to develop key language that we have been able to use in our discussions and also our writing. It has proven effective last term and so we will be continuing with this beneficial aspect of our learning.


Last term we reached number 20 through our 'Number of the Week'  This weekly focus helped us to understand that each number has a meaning as well as a symbol. This term we will be counting back from 20, and securing our skills to count back from a given number. It will also build on our understanding of number and relating it to quantity.
Number-block characters and Numicon pieces will continue to help us to develop our number skills even further and develop key mathematical language to enable us to talk through our thinking and develop reasoning skills.




We will also continue to work towards building confidence, independence and routines that will enhance your child's learning.
We enhance a language rich environment and we will be talking lots and sharing our ideas. It is important that all of our children feel safe, happy and secure in their learning environment.

We are working through the 'Golden Rules' and each week there will be a particular focus.




Don’t forget….

Child initiated learning takes place Outdoors throughout the year, regardless of weather, so please ensure that your child is suitably dressed for the ever changing British weather. Please could you bring in a pair of wellies for your child in a named bag so that they can be left on their peg should they need them for outdoors.

Water is provided at snack time and is freely available throughout the day. Children can bring a labelled water bottle but we remind you that we are only allowed plain water because we are a ‘Healthy School’.

We politely remind you that children are not to bring personal toys into school, unless asked by a teacher.

We are friendly team so if you have any worries or would like a bit of advice please pop in and speak to one of us: 

Mrs Murray, Mrs Turvey and Mrs Brookes.
