Welome to Reception
Welcome back everyone! I sincerely hope you have all had a super Summer holiday.
The first few weeks of term will be spent practicing routines. The children will be getting used to the classroom set up and daily ‘Must do’ tasks. Our first topic is the ‘Mr Men and Little Miss’ book collection written by Roger Hargreaves. We will look at issues related to the different characters in the stories e.g. Mr Happy- discussing ‘What makes us happy?’.
In Maths we will be focussing on counting forwards and backwards and recognising numbers 1-10. We will be identifying the names and differences between 2D and 3D shapes.
Our creative work is going to be based around ‘Autumn’- we will be doing lots of printing, colour mixing, cutting and sticking!
We plan to go for a walk up Stoney Hill and identify ‘Signs of Autumn’ later in the term.
Our phonic focus work is based around the RWI scheme. Please look at the website to familiarise yourself with how we teach phonics.

The children in turn will bring ‘Ellie the elephant’ home. There will be a book for you to write about her adventures. In the book you can include photographs or your child might like to draw pictures and write a little bit.
Children will be given a learning log on a Thursday- If possible returned by the following Tuesday. (See information sheet in front of homework log book)
Initially the children will bring home a book of their choice home for you to read to them in their book bag every Wednesday. PLEASE feel free to write in your child’s reading log to record their response to the book.
