Welcome to Puffins - Reception/Year 1 


This half term our learning theme is  All Creatures Great and Small”.

Our main story will be, “Monkey Puzzle” by Julia Donaldson. Reception children will learn, retell and write the story. Year one will write their own versions of the story.

As usual we have a busy half term ahead!

In science year one will be answering the question:

How do animals survive?

To launch our science learning we are excited to welcome the Owl Sanctuary into school. This will be an exciting opportunity for all of the children to meet some animals and to learn more about them. Year one will be learning all about the different classifications of animals, animal diets and animal adaptations that help them to camouflage or ward off prey.

In the second week of June year one will be doing the Phonics Screening Check, so please continue to support your child’s reading at home- in particular looking for special friends.

A highlight this half term will be our Sports’ Day which we all really enjoy. We relish the opportunity to mix with our friends across classes and ages. There’s always so much fun to be had on preparation day when we paint our t shirts and make our flags. If you have attended a Sports’ Day before, I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s a brilliant day!

In maths year one will learn about number and place value within 100 and measurement- all super skills that we can practice on Sports’ Day- though we’re all winners no matter how far or how fast we go! Reception will explore sharing, odds and evens, doubling and counting beyond 20. 

In PSHE the children will learn more about 'our bodies' and will continue to think about core values and our My Personal Best values-  honesty and courage.

We will continue to use Tapestry to share your child's learning with you and to share important class messages. Please make sure you check the app regularly. Click here for Tapestry website 

Please make sure book bags are brought into school daily. 

 Thank you
