Welcome to the Reception Autumn Term webpage

Welcome to our first half term together in Reception! For our first ever topic at school, we will be learning all about Bears. 

In Communication and Language, we will be listening and asking questions with our new friends as well as learning lots of new words about our topic.

In Phonics we will be learning single letter sounds to help us begin reading and writing words. Look out for a sheet each Friday to practise at home with your child!

In Maths we will be learning all things about the numbers up to 5. We will be learning to count and order objects, recognise numerals and how to instantly recognise small amounts of objects too.

In Understanding of the World we will be learning about the changing of the seasons, from Summer to Autumn, as well as taking part in some super Science experiments.

In PE we will begin to learn some Hall Skills to help us to listen carefully and play games with our new friends. We will explore travelling, movement , shape and balance.

In Art we will be learning about colour mixing and using these skills to make self-portraits. We will be mixing our skin, hair and even eye colour so it looks just like us.

In PSED we will be learning all about the School’s Golden Rules that help keep us safe and happy.

In Computing we will be learning how to turn on the computer and how to use a computer mouse, so that we can make pictures.

We can’t wait to start learning with you all!
