Reception

Welcome to our learning in Reception - Autumn 2

 

Welcome back to Reception for the new term – Christmas is just around the corner and everyone is settling nicely into the routines of school life!

This term in Reception, we have begun by learning all about the body – this tied in nicely to Hallowe’en, as we read Funnybones, by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, and looked at skeletons.  We will be looking at other celebrations this term too – Diwali is next, and we will learn about the story of Rama and Sita, and then Christmas, when we will look at the Christmas story and discuss how different people celebrate the holiday in different ways.

In Numeracy we will be starting to look at adding and taking away, and we will also be looking at 3D shapes.  We will also be continuing with our weekly reading workshop.

We will also soon be beginning our rehearsals for our Christmas performance – which will be Whoops-a-Daisy Angel, which will involve learning lots of exciting songs.

Lovely to see so many people - staff and children alike - dressed in pyjamas and spots for Children in Need. Some awesome stuffed toys, too! School council have done a fantastic job of raising money with today's dress up day, and yesterday's cake sale
