Autumn Term 2 2020
Welcome back to all of our our Reception Class!
We have enjoyed getting to know each other, spending time together playing and learning. We will continue to explore our interests and experiences, continue with our established routines and develop our friendships. We will explore inside and outside, developing our confidence and independence. Staff will support children through planning for individual needs and learning experiences.
We will continue to focus on the prime areas of learning (Communication and Language, Physical Development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development) through games, indoor and outdoor play, as well as story and singing sessions. Daily phonics sessions will teach new sounds and how to put them together in words when we read and write. We really enjoy sharing familiar and new stories and rhymes, building up vocabulary and familiar storylines. Within other areas of learning we will explore the natural world around us, experiment with colour and creative challenges and find out about celebrations. In our mathematical learning we will explore small numbers, spatial awareness and shapes.
There will be daily opportunities for learning outside, in all weathers. We will experience free-flow independent learning between the classroom and outdoor areas, as well as exploring our wonderful school grounds. We will explore as nature detectives, finding out about the world around us. Remember warm coats/hats/gloves as the weather gets colder.
Our topic for this term is Sparkles and Celebrations. Through this topic we will be exploring many things that sparkle – stars and the moon in the night sky, frost, snow and ice. There will also be many opportunities to experience and find out about ways of celebrating. We will find out about bonfire night, Diwali, Advent and Christmas.
We will welcome children through our blue gate from 8.45-8.55 in the morning. Remember to bring your water bottle, coat and book bag every day, along with sound books and reading books/diary. Please try to read daily at home and keep learning your sounds. P.E kits and outdoor clothing can be left at school to use.
If you have any questions or you would like to send me information about any of your learning at home, please contact me by email.
Let’s continue our amazing learning journey.
