Reception Spring Term Overview

In Reception we have been reading the book series ‘Supertato.’ We have enjoyed finding out how Supertato constantly defeats Evil Pea. We have been writing story maps to help us retell the story of ‘Supertato’ this term. During our challenges we have made Evil Pea’s lair, our very own Supertatoes, we have made wanted posters and designed new super vegetables.

Evil Pea has tried to trick us many times as he has muddled up our sentences. We worked hard with Miss Smith to rearrange them and he has also been tying up some vegetables in class. We have even had to free some vegetables outside that were trapped in ice.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed studying superheroes. The topic will continue next term as we look at healthy eating and what a superhero needs to eat to be strong and healthy.

In maths we have been looking at 2D and 3D shapes. We are now able to match shapes together, name our 2D and 3D shapes, talk about their properties and sort them into different categories using a venn diagram.

Here are some examples of the work we have been doing:
