Commotion in the Ocean
This term we are learning about sea life and how to look after our environment. We are also learning about different places around the world, about different types of climates and weather.
Here are some songs you can practise at home:
In Reception we begin by practising our listening skills and developing our language for the first couple of weeks We then move to learning "sounds" that letters make as well as beginning to learn the names of letters. We follow the Read Write Inc scheme, and the children learn the sounds in this order:
These are the Set 1 Speed Sounds written with one letter:

Stories and reading at home
We encourage reading at home as much as possible. We encourage reading for enjoyment as well as to support learning.
In school we read a variety of stories and non-fiction books to support the children's love of reading. We also learn a different story each term, where the children learn actions and the vocabulary of the story. We are currently learning "The Gingerbread Man".
The children can practise this story at home and show you some of the actions they have learnt to support your child here:
