Our classroom

Welcome to Reception Wrens Class


Teacher Mrs Quinton and Teaching Assistant Ms Sandhu.


Term 5 

This term our topic is Big, Bigger, Biggest. As the title suggests, this topic is all about things that grow and develop! Throughout the term, the children will explore and develop their knowledge of plants and vegetables, including how to care from them to ensure they grow. They will also be thinking about other things that grow such as ourselves as well as animals and insects. 


English - The children will continue to take part in their much loved Drawing Club sessions three times a week, to develop their vocabulary and sentences writing. Daily phonics lessons, will continue to focus on phase 3 knowledge and application. In weekly English sessions linked to our topic, the children will be completing activities such as labelling a bee and writing simple planting instructions. 


Communication and language - The children will be developing their language and communication skills through taking part in group/partner discussions and circle times linked to our topic. They will also be listening to a range of stories across the term and key vocabulary from these. Using Poetry Basket, the children will be learning three new poems and rhymes linked to our topic. To develop comprehension of stories and spoken language, the children will be listening to two traditional tales a week and answering blank language questions. This will be alongside using images to make simple predictions and inferences about what they can see. 


Maths - The children will have a busy term learning about 3D shapes, numbers beyond 10 as well as patterns and symmetry. 



Week 2 blog


This week we have been reading a story called 'Oliver's vegetables'. In the story, Oliver thinks he doesn't like vegetables until he actual tries them after finding them on his grandpa's allotment! This got us talking about what vegetables we like. The children then wrote a sentence or two about their favourite vegetable. Carrots and broccoli were very popular!

This week, we had a visit from Ark Farm! The children had a great time learning about all the animals and the best part was getting to stroke them all.smiley

Week 4 blog


This week, in PSHE - we have been thinking about how to be a good friend. This has included, what kind of things we should say and do, if we are being a good friend. The children were very good at sorting statements into kind and unkind things to say. Well done Wrens. smiley
