Welcome to Reception
Literacy – Power of Reading
This Spring we will be enhancing the way we teach literacy by following the ‘Power of Reading’ scheme. This style of teaching allows us to base our learning around a novel linked to our topic. We hope to instil a love of reading in our children by using drama and writing activities to develop their understanding of what they read.
Some of the books we will be reading are: Goldilocks, Little Red Hen, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella and The Gingerbread Man.
Children will be given a maths ‘passport’ that they will start working on in January. The mental skills the children learn range from counting to 20 to adding and subtracting numbers. These maths targets will be shared with you so you can help your child at home. Every time a child reaches and meets their target they receive a certificate J
