Dosbarth Tegid Mawr - Reception

Welcome to Reception



Autumn Term

Our topic this term is Super Me Super You. We will be finding out about ourselves, our family, our locality and much more. 



We will be focusing on the Read, Write, Inc. phonics.  First, we will learn all individual sounds and begin to blend them together to read. Alongside this, we practice forming each letter.  To strengthen our finger muscles ready to write we do ‘Funky Finger Gym’ activities and dough disco.

We also share lots of stories and encourage speaking and listening opportunities every day.


Mathematical Development 

Using a range of resources we will be exploring lots of counting and number recognition games. Form numbers correctly. Match objects to numbers. Understand and use the language of position: over, under, behind, in front of, beside etc. Begin to read simple number sentences that use + and = signs. Recognise the relationship between addition and subtraction in a practical context.
