Summer Term


Welcome to the Reception class page were you will find lots of information about all the learning that happens in the Reception class at Corrie Primary and Nursery School.

What a fantastic Spring term we had learning about the Seasons and about the different types of weather. Understanding the world around us and how we fit into the world.

This involved the children beginning to understand about similarities and differences between themselves and others, including places, objects, materials and living things in their families, communities and traditions.

We discussed the significance of Easter to Christians and how different families in the class celebrate Easter.

The Topic this half term is Super Heroes.

A lot of the continuous provision areas both indoors and outdoors will be enhanced with Super Heroes themed activities.

The children will be drawing, writing and painting pictures of Super Heroes and using ICT to record and describe Super Heroes and their features.

The children will be reading and sharing lots of books on Super Heroes and designing dens for Super Heroes.  They will be learning rhymes and poems about Super Heroes.

Communication and Language.

Communication and Language will be books linked to the Super Heroes theme. The children will listen to a range of stories and begin to accurately anticipate key events and characters in the stories and respond appropriately and be attentive in the activity.



In Maths the children will be reciting numbers to 20, then 100. Counting back from at least 20 to zero. Reciting numbers to 100, counting to 100 in 1s and 10s. Counting in 2s.

Counting on: Adding 1,2,3, given numbers to 20 by counting on.

2D shape and data handling:  

Pattern – Create and complete repeating patterns with two or three colours/shapes/objects/ actions.


Addition and Subtraction: Find 1 more/ 1 less. Subtract 2 by counting back.

Measures (capacity): Direct comparisons. More or less.


Money: Recognise all coins. Very simple addition and subtraction problems involving money.


In Phonics the children will be learning the Phase 4 and Phase 3 Phonics sounds and the phase three/four key words. These will be sent as homework for the children to practise at home.

We support the Phonics Planning Letters and Sounds by learning the actions to the song for each new letter sound.

Outdoor learning – Super Heroes this half term.

The children will use a variety of large construction materials (crates, hollow blocks, planks etc.) for children to construct superhero dens.

We will encourage children to create their own superhero costumes to use in role play activities. Design their own Super Heroes masks.

We will be playing some energetic music for the children to move to in the outdoors.


Provide junk modelling materials for children to make superhero gadgets and vehicles.

The children have access to the outdoor area where we develop children’s creative ideas through different role play areas enhanced with quality play equipment.

The outdoor learning gives children the platform to learn and explore through all the areas of the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum.


Books for enjoyment.

The books are changed on Monday and should be returned on Friday. These books are for you to read with your child and not for the children to read.


We will be continuing to engage children and their parents with the Shine project. We have some new and exciting Maths stories to share.
