Spring 2 -Animals and Growth


This half term in Reception we are thinking about Animals and Growth. We will be tidying up our garden area in the Reception yard and beginning to plant our own fruit and vegetables. We will learn how to care for these different plants and work together to maintain our garden area.



We will also be looking at different animals and pets and learning how to care and look after them. We will watch how both the animals and plants grow and change over time. This half term will also focus on our own personal hygeine and looking at how we can keep ourselves healthy, particularly when touching and looking after animals.



Key Texts


Below are our key texts for this half term. We will be reading them regularly with your children so that they can become involved in the retelling of these stories and build up the number of stories that they know. Hearing familiar stories lots of times builds up children's confidence and supports their love of stories.


Look out for these key texts in school, at home or in the library and share them with your child. They may even be able to tell you parts of the story :)

Meet the Numberblocks

In Reception we follow a Numberblocks scheme of work to teach Maths. The scheme focuses on giving children a solid understanding of numbers up to 10 in a fun and interactive way. This deeper understanding of early number is then built upon throughout the year with the introduction of the Numberblock characters up to 20.
