Our topic for our second Autumn half term is
'People who help us'.
We will be learning all about different occupations in our community and how people in these occupations can help us in the community. We will also be exploring what occupation we would like to do when we grow up.
This is an exciting half term in Reception where the children will be learning about Goldilocks and the three bears story during Literacy and continuing to learn our sounds during phonics. We are beginning to blend the sounds to read and write words both in Literacy and phonics.
In Numeracy we will be exploring numbers, accurate counting and using different ways to represent from one to five. We will be beginning to make number bonds to understand how numbers can go together to make a certain number. We will also be introducing shapes and exploring what shapes we can find in our environment.
Our PE sessions are as follows:
Elm- Monday and Thursday
Oak-Monday and Tuesday.
Our newsletters are sent out at the beginning of each half term. Please look out for them as they contain information about upcoming events as well as topic information. You can read our latest newsletter here.
We are pleased to invite you to come and read with your child each morning. We will be running daily sessions in your child's key worker groups and these sessions will run from 8:45am-8:55am.
Please find below a table which will tell you which key worker group is running a reading session on which day:
We hope to see you all there!
