Welcome to Reception

Autumn 2

We are spending time learning to blend using our phonics knowledge.  We are practising forming the graphemes s,a,t,p,i,n,m,m and g. We will also be practising writing our last names. We will learn to read the tricky words to, go, the, my, me and no. 


In mathematics, we will be sorting objects and comparing the similarities and differences between objects. We will be adding amounts together. We will be looking at 2D and 3D shapes using Paul Klee's art work and building our own light box to investigate shape cross-curricularly.


Our Big Question is 'What Happens In Winter?' We will be looking at the seasonal changes in nature and also at some of the festivals and historically significant dates that occur in winter.

This work will be collated in a class Floor Book, which the children are able to look at and discuss with their peers. 


Please can you send in a warm waterproof coat with a hood and a pair of wellingtons with your child's name inside if you have not already done so. We spend a lot of time learning in the outside classroom. 


Your child will receive homework every Friday in their Busy Bee book and a new reading book. P. E is on Fridays, so your child will need a labelled P.E kit in a drawstring bag. Computing is on Thursdays and Music is every Tuesday. There is a science or art activity every Friday also. 

If you have any question or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me.


Thank you for all your help and support.
