This half term Reception will be learning about mini-beasts. To support and enhance what we do in school you could:

  • look up different types of Minibeasts on the internet
  • visit the library to look at books about Minibeast     
  • visit the local park to go on a Minibeast hunt


These are some of the stories we will be focusing on this half term:

  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
  • Ahhh Spider by Lydia Monks
  • The Beeman by Laurie Krebs and Valerie Cis
  • If only by Neil Griffiths
  • The Bad Tempered Ladybird by Eric Carle
  • The Snail and The Whale by Julia Donaldson
  • The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle

In Phonics lessons children will be learning to blend the sounds they know in longer words, for example, ladybird, caterpillar and butterfly.

We will also be learning some new tricky words:

Said, were, there, have, like, little, what when, were

We are learning to spell: are, you, all, they, some, one, come, said, do, was.

In Mathematics we will be learning to solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing. We will be developing and consolidating our knowledge of number and shape.
