Reception – Miss Skilton and Miss Sunderland

Our topic for this half term is ‘Why do squirrels hide their nuts?’. During this topic we will explore all things autumn with a focus on seasons, woodland animals and changes to our environment.  Phonics will be taught daily following the ‘Letters and Sounds’ scheme and we will start with phase 2 sounds and continue from there. For maths we are focusing on numbers 1-10 to begin with, this includes exploring these numbers to develop our mastery and reasoning. We will also look at basic shapes and patterns. ‘Numberblocks’ are a great resource for developing number knowledge. We will use these in class to support maths learning. Everyone should have access to ‘Tapestry’ and this is where you will be able to see observations on your child and you will be able to comment and add your own observations too (see the weekly home learning ideas below). This is a great platform for us to use in partnership to support your child on their learning journey.

Due to the restrictions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we are not able to offer our traditional open morning for propsective parents and pupils of our Reception class for September 2021. Instead, we are working on putting together a virtual tour and introduction to our school and our Early Years Foundation Stage Unit. When it has been completed, we will post it to our Early Years Foundation Stage page on the website, which can be found under the 'Our School' tab.

We are also hosting a virtual Question and Answer session for prospective parents via Google Meet. The meeting will be held at 2:30pm on Thursday, 12th November and can be accessed via this link: meet.google.com/abi-hiqp-vfp
