Reception  

Welcome to your new school.   

We will start the year by getting to know each other and learning the class routines and expectations. We will look briefly at the stories of Kipper’s Toybox and Owl Babies.

As the term progresses we will observe the changing seasons and link this to stories such as the Gruffalo.

In maths we will be learning about number sense. Each Wednesday we shall go on a magical adventure to numberland. Numberland is a special place where we learn lots about each number. You will be invited to bring in objects from home too.

In phonics we will learn letter sounds using actions and songs to help us. We will also start to blend two sounds to make words and work on our first reading books. Please make sure you read regularly at home – it really does make so much difference to your child’s attainment. The songs we use to help us are linked below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx4Jj69J1-I

Children will need to have suitable clothing in school at all times. They will need wellies and waterproof trousers to make the best use of the outdoor space that we have.

At half-term we will have a special Autumn assembly where we will share a few songs and some special handmade treats. A large part of our classroom is outside, and we are continually trying to make improvements to this. Over half-term you will be set a challenge which will form the first part of our fundraising for this year.

We will finish the term with a simple traditional Christmas assembly and share some seasonal books and traditions.

Please share any exciting news from home on Tapestry so that we can link it to learning in school.

As always if you ever have any questions or concerns please do come and ask as staff in EYFS are always happy to help.   

Watch this space for photo updates and for what is in store for next term.
