Welcome to Reception Class



Autumn Term 1 2021


This term  our learning and activities will be inspired by our learning theme 'Autumn Days'. We are hoping to have a local farmer to visit us with his tractor and I know with all our farming families this year we are are going to have some class experts on hand  to help us all  with learning about combine harvesting and other elements of farming. We are planning to make our own bread and pumpkin soup too. We will be learning to recognise and write our letters, as well as learning to blend letters to make words during our daily phonics sessions with Fred the frog.   We will be developing our number recognition, counting and problem solving skills during our daily maths sessions and this year we are lucky enough to be accepted on a 'Maths Mastery' programme which will further enhance our learning. There will be lots of opportunities for the children to explore, investigate and create, everyday there will opportunities to use our outside spaces and there will be a weekly Forest School session too. Developing collaboration powers is going to be a key focus to play and learning as the children get used to the school routine.


Children will need to come to school in PE kits on Tuesdays and Forest School clothes on Thursdays please.


If you need to access home learning, activities, resources and planning will be uploaded to our  'Little Smarties' Webpage 

We will also use our Class Group Webpage on our 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
