Your teacher is Miss Rietzler and teaching assistants are Miss Bunn and Mrs Cela.

Here is our curriculum map of skills for the Summer Term 2! We have lots of fun events to look forward to this term including sports day, our school trip and transition.

Take a look at some of the lovely work we have been up to so far this year! Most recently we had Sports Day! The children did brilliantly! They all showed such determination and great sportsmanship. Well done to Blue house who were the Reception winners. You can also stay up to date with your child’s learning using the online platform learning books!

In literacy we have started to explore different texts, there key features and sequencing stories. We have also been working really hard to practise our writing. The children have been able to write captions, their names and some high frequency words remembering to use correct letter formation. At Peartree Spring we use the Monster Phonics Systematic Synthetic Phonics programme.  We have now learnt all of our phase 2 initial sounds and are starting to look at the phase 3 digraphs! The children love all the monsters and are confident in recognising each characters sound.

We now have monster phonics guided reading books which the children love. It is important to read with your child every night as this repetition is what helps with their blending and sight recognition of words.


In maths we have focused on numbers to 10, counting and recognising different values using 1:1 correspondence. We have been able to recognise more and less as well as starting to sequence larger numbers.  The children have also looked at broadening their vocabulary when it comes to comparing and contrasting. We have looked at patterns, number formation and 2D shapes.

We have PE on a Monday afternoon but ask that PE kit are in school all week in case we have extra sessions. We are focusing on the movement checklist, developing gross motor skills using different parts of the body, including balance and control. We have also been starting to practise different ball skills including throwing overarm, throwing underarm and catching. Outdoor trainers are also required all week so that the children can use the equipment outside.


Here are some pictures of our lovely environment here at Peartree Spring!

The EYFS curriculum is split into 7 areas; 3 Prime areas and 4 Specific areas:

  • Prime Areas: Personal, social & emotional development (PSED), communication and language (CL) and physical development (PD)
  • Specific Areas: Literacy (L), Maths (M), Understanding the world (UW) and Expressive Arts (EAD)

In Reception, we aim to promote ‘The Characteristics of Effective Learning’ through skills that develop;

  • Engagement
  • Motivation
  • Thinking
  • Independence

to create enthusiastic, resilient and life-long learners. The children will develop these skills through adult led sessions as well as in play and learn. Our curriculum is built around the children’s interests, so do let us know if there is anything in particular that your child enjoys!

Well done to this weeks star of the week Sienna for always offering a helping hand with jobs in the classroom.

Well done to this weeks monster phonics star Michael.
