Welcome to the Summer Term in Reception


In Phonics this half term, we are continuing to revise Phase 3 sounds and tricky words as well as practicing the phase 4 tricky words below. At this stage in the year we are focusing on the children segmenting ('chopping up') words to spell and blending sounds together to read. 

Phase 4 tricky words - please practice reading and writing these

said, have, like, so, do, some, come, were, there, little, one, what, when, out

The children will also be reading:

CVCC words e.g.  pink, tent, sink, sand, paint 

CCVC words e.g. flag, glad, drum, trim 



This half-term in mathematics, we are focusing on doubling, halving and sharing using amounts up to 20. We will link this work to practical and real-life situations. The children will also explore odd and even numbers and continue to solve addition and subtraction by counting on and back. We are going to encourage the children to solve simple problems using shapes and measures and to create more complex repeating patterns. They will also have a go at creating and following simple maps and plans using directional and positional language.



The children are currently learning about keeping healthy. The children have been talking about the effects of exercise on their bodies, healthy eating, healthy teeth and road safety.  

As we move through the weeks we will be moving on to learning about their local area, maps and journeys and fun summer activities. 

Please keep an eye out for updates on our school Twitter account as we post pictures of the children's learning, fun and challenges.                        


Religious Education


In RE this half-term, the children will be learning more about the Christian faith. Our main question will be: What do Christians say the Holy Spirit is like? To help them to understand the answer to this question they will learn that:

 The Holy Spirit is like the wind

That Pentecost is the church’s birthday.

That the Holy Spirit gives people feelings.

That the Holy Spirit is received as a gift.

We will also think more about prayer, what it means, how and why people pray.



Please continue to read the book your child brings home at least three times and over the weekend, when you don't have a physical book, you can use Bug Club. Your child has been allocated books on Bug Club that match the level of their school reading books, so this is a great resource to help your child to make further reading progress.
