During this Spring half term, Reception are exploring traditional tales (such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs). We will be speaking about the lessons they teach us and learning to listen to each other’s ideas. As part of our personal and social development, we will be using these stories to explore ways we can be safe and look after one another. In Literacy, we will be using inspiration from the stories to write captions and hold a sentence. In Maths we will be focusing on being able to find one more and less than numbers between 1-20 and learning how to write number sentences. We will also be looking at all kinds of measure through activities such as baking and construction. As part of our physical development, we will be improving our coordination and balancing skills by playing team games and negotiating obstacles in our outdoor spaces. Furthermore, we will be working on our fine motor skills by using small tools to help make props for retelling the stories we read. Lastly, to better our understanding of the world, we will be looking at the changes in the weather and our woodland environment as we approach Spring.
