Montgomerie Primary School

Every Second Counts

Welcome to Reception

Welcome to the Spring term.   

This term we will be start by learning about fairy tales. We will read books such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Elves and the Shoemaker and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

After half-term we will learn about people who help us in and around our local area. We will change our role play area to show what we have learnt too.

As the term progresses we will look again at how the seasons are changing around us. 

In phonics we will continue to learn new sounds. We will work to blend three and then four sounds to make words and develop confidence to read simple sentences. We will also learn to read some new tricky words and spell some of the words we already know. It is REALLY important that children read at home every day. It doesn't need to take more than 5 minutes or so but must be done. 

Children will need to have suitable clothing in school at all times. They will need wellies and waterproof trousers to make the best use of the outdoor space that we have.

A large part of our classroom is outside. We are continually trying to make improvements to this and will periodically ask for your support with fundraising towards improvements to this area. 

Please share any exciting news from home on Tapestry so that we can link it to learning in school.

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

Watch this space for photo updates and for what is in store for next term.
