St Thomas' CE Primary Academy

Term 1

Welcome to Term 1

This term we will be giving opportunities for the children to settle into their new learning environments, form new friendships and begin to follow our school rules and routines.

Reception will be introduced to a range of stories this term including The Colour Monster and We’re going on a bear hunt. We will visit some traditional tales such as Goldilocks and the three bears and The Little Red Hen. From these stories, there will be provision set up each week for the children to engage with and develop their communication and language. The provision will support children’s abilities within literacy, maths, understanding the world, physical development, personal social emotional development and expressive arts and design.
