AUTUMN TERM:

Hello! Welcome back to all the children and families of our Reception classes. We have two reception classes, Mr Ward's and also Mrs Ventre's. The children in both classes are working very hard to settle in to their new classes.

Here is an overview of the Autumn term:
New Beginnings Moving to a new class, new school and making new friends and learning to be a good, kind friend. Learning skills of good hygiene.  Listening and paying attention in small group activities.
All about me and my family. To develop an understanding about self and to be able to share this with other people. Naming members of our family and sharing what is special about our family.  Explore the idea that our families are all different but may have similarities too.
Autumn
To experience, understand and learn about the world they live in, focusing on the season of Autumn.
My Body Looking after our bodies.  Keeping ourselves healthy and hygienic.  Naming parts of our bodies. Exploring our senses.
Harvest Where our food comes from.  Healthy eating. Farms and farming.  Harvest festival – saying thank you for our food. Animals storing food for the winter.
Christmas Introducing children to the story of the birth of Jesus Christ, discussing gifts and Christmas celebrations in order for children to know the key elements and also have FUN!
Birthdays and Celebrations Learn about occasions/events special to themselves and others. Begin to develop respect and interest in the beliefs and cultures unique to different people around the world.
Getting on and Falling out Form friendships with other children, respond to feelings and wishes of others.  Work as part of a pair and a small group.  Taking turns and sharing fairly.
Letters and Sounds Practising segmenting and blending words.  EG C-A-T says CAT  Children will be introduced to their letters.  The first six letters will be S A T P I N.  The children will learn the sounds of the letters and will begin to practice how to write the letters using the lower case form.  Further letters will follow on and we will keep you informed of these. 
Mathematics Children will be counting on and back to 10 each day.  They will practice recognising and writing numbers through number rhymes. 


Look out for the children's excellent creative output and learning on our page! Also check out the gallery for pictures of our outdoor learning and other memorable moments in our childrens' learning journeys. Remember:  Reading books in school everyday and please read at home every night. We change the book bags on Mondays and Thursdays. This gives time for the children to really get a deep understanding of their books and to start to learn the words that they are seeing on a daily basis. Children love and learn through doing the same things consistently and this will improve their reading confidence and ability.
