Sunflower Class - Reception

Autumn Term 1st half 2018

In Sunflower Class FS2 this half term we will be welcoming the children into our new class, helping them to settle in by getting to know their new friends as well as the school and class routines.  We will be introducing them to the different schemes and resources that we use with TPA such as Read, Write Inc, Ten Town and Numicon to give them the firm foundations which they need to build upon their literacy and numeracy skills.

This half term our topic is ‘One in a Minion’ focusing on what makes us special and unique.  We will be looking at:

  • ourselves- what do we look like and what do you like doing?
  • What we looked like as a baby
  • How people change as they grow up?
  • Different family members
  • What makes a good friend.
  • What we want to get better at by the end of the year.

We will be looking at a range of text within this topic including:-

When I was a baby

You'll soon grow into them, Titch

Mr Big

Giraffe's can't dance
