Welcome to Reception
A very warm welcome to Autumn 2!
Our topic for this half term is ‘Celebrations’.
We will be learning about different celebrations around the world and exploring patterns and traditions associated with them. We will be learning about Diwali, bonfire night and Christmas. The children will enjoy learning through play together and have access to a well-planned curriculum based around the seven areas of the EYFS. They will be provided with a rich learning environment which enables them to follow their own interests and be ‘active’ learners.
Reception will also be learning about Autumn. They will enjoy an Autumn walk and observe the seasonal changes.
The children’s PE sessions will be on a Tuesday this half term. The children will need pumps in school in a named bag ready for these sessions. Children will not need a full PE kit whilst in reception.
Reading at home is super important in EYFS and every child will be provided with a ‘read with me’ reading book to share with you at home. As their phonic knowledge develops, they will then receive an additional book which is phonetically decodable and they can read themselves. Books should be read twice at home and books will be changed once a week. Homework will come home on a Wednesday and be collected back in on a Monday.
Children can bring a healthy snack into school for snack time and until they are 5 will be provided with milk.
Please ensure your child has a suitable coat and shoes for outdoor play. As we move towards the autumn months we will continue to learn and play in our outdoor classroom.
If you wish to contact me, do not hesitate to message me on class seesaw or grab me at the school gate! I will be keeping you updated with all the fun learning we are doing together in school on the school website or on class Seesaw.

Thanks for your continued support and we are very much looking forward to another busy and festive term!
