Montgomerie Primary School

Every Second Counts

Welcome to Reception - The Royals class

Welcome back to the Spring term

We will start by revisiting class routines and expectations and setting new year resolutions.

We will learn about traditional stories such as The Elves and the Shoemaker, Three Billy Goats Gruff and Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will retell them in a variety of ways and then have a go at saying and writing our own sentences. 

As the term progresses we will observe the changing seasons.

In maths we will develop our learning about number sense. We will use ten frames to complete simple calculations and start to use words relating to measures.

In phonics we will learn learn new sounds and sight words. We will blend and split three sounds in words to help us with reading and writiing. Please make sure you read regularly at home – it really does make so much difference to your child’s attainment.

After half-term we will work on the story of The Little Red Hen and link this to our trip to Barleylands farm. We will also learn about people who help us in and around our local community.

As part of our early years curriculum we have free access to the classroom and also our garden. Children will need to have suitable clothing with them at all times. This includes a good quality coat to provide both warmth and a waterproof later, a pair of waterproof trousers and a pair of wellies.

All of our work is shared in an online learning journey. We use a platform called Tapestry. There staff in school and grown ups from home can share achievements of the children. Please do share special things with us from home too.


If you ever have any questions or concerns please do ask as staff in EYFS are always happy to help.
