Welcome to the Reception Class Pages for Derwent Road
Welcome to Reception at Derwent Road. Please find below information about your child’s learning topics this half term, including topic leaflets. Please see our specific class pages for photos and individual class learning journeys. You can also find our early years newsletter that will be uploaded weekly in our newsletter section below.
PE days are on a Monday and Wednesday for Swans and Tuesday and Thursday for Puffins. Children will require a sweatshirt/hoodie and jogging trousers/leggings and a pair of trainers (no laces). How we teach PE may depend on current government guidance. The children will also need to bring a named water bottle to school each day which they can access freely throughout the day.
This half term we will be looking at the "Wonderful World of Eric Carle". We will be exploring finding bugs in our outside area and also looking at lots of texts written by this well known author. We have had a big renovation to our outdoor area so this half term the children will be able to continue to develop their gross motor and also explore our new areas. We will continue along our phonics journey through Phase 3 and also continue to work with numbers to 10 in detail and then look at counting to 20.
