Reception Autumn Newsletter
Welcome to Reception! I am pleased to inform you that all of the Reception children are settling in well and getting used to our busy school life.
In Literacy we will be reading the story ‘Come to School Too, Blue Kangaroo’. The book will be used as a theme throughout literacy to promote pupils writing and enjoyment. This will lead to pupil’s letter formation developing and also the writing of simple words.
Throughout Maths, we will be exploring number recognition, number order involving numicon and towards the end of the term, 2D shapes.
Our Topic theme is ‘Ourselves’. This will involve learning about what we are all good at, what we enjoy doing and our families. This is a great opportunity for Reception to get to know each other and for us to get to know them better.
In Science, we will be looking at Autumn and what changes occur in nature. We will be discovering what animals gather foods for the winter; what happens to the leaves on trees; and what we will notice throughout the season.
Phonics will be taught through the Read Write Inc scheme. This will help all pupils with their letter sounds, reading and writing.
Reading books will be going home shortly. We ask that your child reads with an adult every day and for you to sign the reading diary provided.
PE takes place every Tuesday afternoon and it is important in Reception that we have our pumps with us at all times. Please write your child’s name in the pumps, so we can always identify who they belong to.
Please feel free to speak to us about anything at the end of the day. We are regularly available at this time.
The Reception team is really excited for our first term with you all.

Look at how well our Reception children are doing completing their challenges! Once they have completed all of the Rainbow challenges they can have a go at the super tricky Golden Star Challenge. Remember one of the challenges is to read at home so please continue to support your child to be a superstar by reading with them and filling in the Reading Diary.
Keep up the GREAT work Reception!
All of the children really enjoy sharing books and retelling stories.
Please read with your child as often as you can to help them become familiar with storytelling and reading. Reception children also have reading records for you to fill in each time you read together.
