Autumn Term 2019
Welcome to Reception!
Class teachers: Mrs E Jones (Class 3) Mrs Tyrer (Class 4)
Teaching Assistants: Mrs C Jones and Miss Carney.
In Reception we will be learning through lots of fun, play based activities which fall into the 7 areas of learning for the Early Years Foundation Stage. These are;
Personal, Emotional and Social Development
Communication and Language
Our first topic for this half term is ‘All About me’. We can not wait to start our new school year and get to know each other through our creative learning curriculum.
We have a number of exciting activities planned for the children and we will be using a variety of texts as part of our Narrative Immersion Planning. This allows children to explore and learn through new experiences and their imagination. We will use these in a 'Story Box' to capture the children's interest and engage them with different stories and topics.
In Communication, Language and Literacy we will be developing confidence in speaking and listening through stories, discussion and role-play activities. We will be developing skills in letter and word recognition, as well as developing pencil control and the correct formation of letters using the cursive style of writing.
In Mathematics we will be exploring our understanding of numbers to 10 and beginning to look at numbers to 20. Measurement, shape and space will be explored through lots of exciting role play and practical activities linked to our topics and personal experiences.
In Reception, we play outside daily and in all weather, so we ask that you provide your child with the appropriate outdoor clothing and suitable footwear.
Please feel free to come and speak with any of us in Reception about anything you need. We look forward to working with you and your child this term.
