Welcome to Year R!

Summer 1

Early Years - Mrs Watson, Mrs Berry, Miss Neville.



The classroom has been changed to make more room to explore and learn. There are now working zones and quiet areas too. Outside is changing too. The new beach area is very popular and the children are currently planning how the stage area will be set out.

The children are learning to listen well and respect each other. As a reward they earn conkers in a jar which leads to a treat. We have already earned two treats which is fantastic.


Literacy - We are learning to write 3* sentences which have a capital letter, finger spaces and a full stop. We are also learning to write all our letters in school writing so that they are formed correctly.


Mathematics - We are working to add and take away and recognise all our numbers to 20. We are learning the names of flat and solid shapes and how to describe them.


Music - We are making simple rhythms and singing songs.


PE - everyone is working to get ready for PE independently. We are practicing for sports day as well as using balancing equipment.
