Welcome back to Autumn 2 term!

 

I hope that everyone had a refreshing and relaxing half term break. Last term we all successfully settled into the school year smoothly, made new friends and learnt lots of new exciting things. I am sure that this term will be busier, more fun and even more exciting, with a long 8 week term and the Christmas play to look forward to.  -Miss French

Our Curriculum

In Reception our play based program is designed to help children attain the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) goals appropriate for their age.

There are 7 main focus areas which include personal, social and emotional development, communication and language, mathematics, physical development, understanding the world, and expressive arts and design. 

Please click the link below to find out more information.

It is very important that your child is in school every day and we advise that you contact the school office if your child is absent for any reason, and that holidays are during school holiday time.

Mathematics

We this term we are focusing on number and shape. We are learning to count, write and order our numbers and recognise a square, triangle, rectangle and circle. 

 

Religion 

In reception we are an active part of the school community. We attend an infant liturgy and hymn practice weekly. In the classroom the topic we are currently looking at is 'Welcome' looking at being welcomed into God's family through baptism. 

 

Phonics

We are  learning the names of letters and their sounds. Ask your child what sounds letters make. Below is a list of the letters in the order we will be learning them – this is a vital process for the children to master as it is essential to help with reading, writing and spelling.

It is really important that children are learning to sound and write these correctly.
