During term 1, in Reception, we will be exploring The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle and Here We Are by Oliver Jeffers. We will be using these stories to spark our imagination and to learn about the world.

Phonics – We use Read Write Inc. to teach phonics. Please log onto the learning platform (Jotter) for information on this programme. Every Friday your child will bring home our sounds of the week along with a tricky word, please practise reading and writing these sounds and words at home.

Number – Throughout the term we will be explore numbers to 10: how to write them, how to make them, one more, one less, numbers bonds to master the skills of number.


RE –

As part of our Catholic ethos, we embed our values throughout the school day and into our lives. We start our day with our morning prayer, have regular reflection times along with collective worship, we also say our prayer before lunch. This term, in our RE lessons, we are learning about, God’s Wonderful World. We like to finish our day by talking to God in our hometime prayer. In reception we love to sing and learn hymns.

Jotter Learning Platform

At St Michael’s we subscribe to Jotter; the learning platform designed with primary schools in mind. Children are growing up in a fast-changing online world and we strive to ensure that they gain the essential skills both within and beyond school. Teachers will keep you up-to-date with your child’s learning. Your child will be able to download and upload work and complete tasks. There will be pages where much of what you see has been created by the children themselves. This is their chance to shine as they write content and collaborate on research.

Jotter gives children the opportunity to explore concepts such as wikis and blogs in a safe environment. We hope you enjoy using Jotter as much as we do. To log in please type in your child’s username and password. To obtain this information please speak to your class teacher.
