Welcome to Reception Class



Autumn Term 2020


I hope you're all safe and well and managed to have an enjoyable summer break. It was super to see so many of you at the end of the Summer Term to give you your child's New Starter Learning Packs and get to know some of you a little better.   


This term, lots of our learning and activities are inspired by our learning theme 'Autumn Colours.' We will be exploring and investigating with colour,using Autumn Treasures that we find and experiences we have in the forest to create poems, nature writing, help us with our counting skills and art work. We will be learning about harvest time, making our own bread and using lots of Autumn themed stories to enhance our play. This term there will be a particular focus on  hand washing and staying safe, as well lots of other activities to develop our Personal, Social and Emotional Development. We will be using stories such as 'The Colour Monster', 'My Many Coloured Days' and 'Huge Bag of Worries' in our Keyworker time to help recognise, develop and manage feelings and emotions and have lots of opportunities to share how we feel.


We will be working on recognising the sounds that letters make and practising sounding and blending them during our daily phonics . We will be developing our maths, problem solving and reasoning skills during our daily maths challenges and have lots of opportunities to explore, create and learn through continuous  play time. 


We will be spending lots of time outside and our classroom spaces will be well ventilated so please can you ensure children have a school jumper and it might be worth them wearing a vest or extra layers on chilly days.


In the event that you need to access home learning activities for your child, 'Little Smarties' Webpage 

can be accessed and relevant planning, resources and activities will be put on here if required. We have a school Facebook page

which is a super way to keep updated with Knightlow News and  our own class group page is a great way to show WOW moments  of learning that your child has done at home as well as a super way for us to keep you updated too. 


Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns or would like to offer your help or support in any way

Thank you 

Mrs Cathy Amos-Simpson
