Welcome to Reception!

Autumn Term 2017

Autumn Harvest is our learning theme for the first half of this term and learning and activities will be inspired by this.  Children are welcome to bring in and share items and books related to all of their learning-providing a super opportunity to develop their confidence and speaking and listening skills. This term we are also involved in a whole school literacy project including the book by Oliver Jeffers  'Child of Books' and 'The Promise'. Reception will also be looking at other great stories that Oliver Jeffers has written. Our Reading Area will be inspired by this theme and the children will be planning and developing this space themselves. We plan to use our Forest School space as frequently as possible too. If you would like to help us with Forest School or other learning please let me know. 


We aim to work hard to recognise and write our letters and sound and blend them to make simple words. Our maths numbers focus is counting, recognising and writing numbers 0-10 and beyond and our outside space is being used to develop lots of our measuring, estimating and problem solving skills. Our Building Learning Power focus this term is Listening.


In the second half of term our learning theme will be 'Out of this World' looking at planets and space then leading up to Christmas we will learning about festivals including Divali, Chinese Moon Festival and Bonfire Night. 


Don’t forget to regularly check our class webpage on this school website and twitter for recent photographs of your child’s learning and check the weekly newsletter for updates exciting upcoming events including our Reception Welcome Service.


If you have any queries or questions about your child’s learning or would like to help this term please don’t hesitate to come and speak with us.


Thank you for your support so far.
