Welcome to Reception! We are so happy to be able to teach such wonderful and unique children this year who have settled into school life with ease. This half term our topic is called 'what happens when we fall asleep'. It's all about what happens when it's dark. For example, seeing at the stars in the sky and learning about the different planets. Or listening to and looking at fantastic fireworks and creating our own firework art. We also learn about nocturnal animals and how special each one is as well as going on autumn walks outside and investigating all there is to see.
Please note in literacy this half term we will be learning the story 'The Three Little Pigs'.
As well as this, we will be beginning to learn our phase 2 phonics sounds to help us to read and write. Please support your child at home with the phonics pack we provided. In addition, the children are really enjoying learning their grey key words and learning all about Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy. Please read frequently with your child at home to encourage a love of reading and to help support them with their learning.
Lastly, please note PE is on a Monday afternoon.
Show and Tell and library time is every Friday.
See the blow links for information on how we learn in Reception, as well as seeing our class blog, which will be updated weekly.
