Believe And Achieve: To Be The Best That We Can Be



Welcome to the Hummingbirds class!


Our theme in Reception for the Summer term is 'I'm Not Scared' 


The children will continue to explore the natural world around them, making observations of animals and plants. They will be learning that minibeasts are invertebrates and that they are not only fascinating creatures, they are an essential part of the food chain. 


PE is twice a week; please make sure that your child has the correct PE kit (including warm layers as we will be outside as much as possible). Please ensure that your child's PE kit is named! In PE, the children will practise and further develop their fundamental movement skills by playing a variety of games. We will also be learning a new routine for our Country Dancing which we will perform at the Summer Fair. We will continue to develop our fine and gross motor skills, through handling equipment, weaving and writing.


Please take a look at the Key Class Information, Curriculum Letter and Termly Overview to see the other learning opportunities the children will experience throughout this half term.


Homework will be sent home with the children which will consist of learning the new sounds taught and reading daily. 


We are really excited about welcoming all our children back to their reception class for the summer term and look forward to all the fun we will have together during our Summer term in reception.

Miss Kurvink & Miss Hammond
