Our topic for our first Autumn half term is 

'Wonderful me'.


We will be learning all about ourselves, our families and creating new friendships in our new classes and also settling into our new school and routines.


This is an exciting first half term in Reception where the children will be learning about The Runaway Chapati story during Literacy and learning lots of new sounds during 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 recognise more, less and same as using numbers and objects.


Our PE sessions are as follows:

Elm- Monday and Thursday 

Oak- Tuesday and Wednesday.






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.
