Summer 2

Welcome to the Summer 2 term in reception. Our theme for this term is 'Plant it!'. 


Your child will be learning to:


  • Describe what they see, hear and feel whilst outside.

  • Begin to name common plants and trees. 

  • Begin to develop an understanding of what plants need in order to grow.

  • Develop their understanding of how to care for the natural environment and all living things.





This term, your child will be writing a range of sentences for the narratives 'Jack and the Jellybean Stalk' and 'We're going on a Bear Hunt'. As well as this, your child will also be continuing to use their phonics knowledge to write labels, lists, cards and letters in the areas of provision and linked to the stories shared in class. Please see the knowledge organiser here for a further insight into the other books that will be shared.






In maths this term, your child will be developing their knowledge and understanding of key mathematical concepts including doubling, sharing amounts equally and evens and odds.
