Reception Curriculum Information

Happy New Year!


Welcome to 2023 and to the Spring term.  We hope that you all had good holidays and you are ready for some more fun learning at school.


Our new topic for Spring 1 is 'Terrific Tales' and we will be focussing on traditional stories including ‘The Three Little Pigs’, ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, ‘The Gigantic Turnip’, ‘No Dinner! The Story of the Old Woman and the Pumpkin’, ‘The Three Billy Goats Gruff and ‘The Gingerbread Man'.  The children will have the opportunity to act out the different stories and take part in a range of activities across the seven areas of learning that are linked to the texts. Our curriculum for this half term is attached above and a copy will also be emailed to you.


Important Information

  • PE Kits - The children will need to bring a PE kit into school from now on as they will be getting changed for their PE lessons.  Please can you ensure that your child has a PE kit in school as soon as possible.  This will be kept on their peg for the duration of each half term and sent home to be washed each holiday. 
  • Uniform labelling Please make sure that ALL of their uniform and belongings are clearly labelled so that we can reunite lost items with their owners.
