Spring Term

Welcome to reception

Wow one term completed, the children have all been superstars and we are very proud of how they have been in their first term.

During the spring  term our topic will be 'Animals'' we will be thinking about all animals starting with a visit to Chester Zoo. We will be looking at large and dangerous animals as well as why the animals live in the zoo.

We will also be looking at how we care for animals which will include a visit from Pets at Home, we will be having our own animals to look after which will be very egg citing (more  to follow)

We will even be having our own vets and zoo at school!!!

Below are some photographs of my cat Tilly and Mrs Clarkes dog Lottie


In  literacy we will be focusing on books about animals starting with 'Rumble in the jungle' We will be acting out the story, learning how a story is put together and looking at the characters to help develop our reading and writing.

We will be writing our own descriptions and trying to guess what animals we are.

We will be learning our sounds we will be looking at initial sounds, making words using the sounds and our tricky words. Check the classroom every morning for our sound of the day and hidden words to read and look out for our new reading area both inside and outside of the classroom.

In maths we will be using the White Rose Hub mastery approach. This half term we will be focusing on numbers counting and recognition, 2D shapes, money and addition and subtraction up to 5.

The children will be doing lots of learning in the outdoor area using our new literacy and maths area, mud kitchen,  role play, sand, water and stage! We are also hoping to do lots of planting in our nature area. Look out for lots of hidden sounds and numbers in our Home corner area!!!! Who does our house belong to?

My door is always open if you have any questions, worries or concerns. Please feel free to catch myself, Mrs Clarke or Miss Moore at the beginning or end of the day.




Please can you make sure the children have their P.E Bags in school. They can bring them in on a Monday morning for the week ahead and be left in their pegs. Please make sure all clothing and belongings are clearly named. Thank you




We aim to read and change your child’s reading book twice a week. It is important that your child has their book bags and reading books and diaries in school every day so that this is possible. We ask that you spend 10 minutes each day listening to your child read their book or key words. It is important to talk about the story to make sure you child is understanding what they have read. When you have heard your child read please could you complete the home school reading diary. This will help us to monitor reading development.



Talking homework
Here at Victoria Road Primary School we feel that talk is crucial and is built into our every day practice and school curriculum. To enhance and promote talking we have decided to start giving Talking Homework once a week. Your child will bring home a slip stuck into their reading diary with the chosen topic of discussion for that evening. Talk Homework may include using wow words (big or interesting words). On the day your child gets their Talking Homework they will not need to read but will be expected to spend time discussing their Talking Homework with as many adults as possible at home. Children will still need to read on the other nights of the week, except on the night they get their Talking Homework. However to get the best benefits would be to discuss their Talking Homework as much as possible over the week as this will help them back in class where there will be quality time spent discussing or writing about the chosen topic. The day this will come home on may be different for different classes.

We feel that Talk Homework will contribute to the enrichment of writing and hope that you will support your child at home.
