Autumn 1

This term we will be doing lots of exciting learning! We will be making new friends and getting used to our new environment.

During the first couple of weeks we will be reading and learning about a book called Owl Babies, this is a carefully chosen text in order to support the children’s transition into Reception. We will then focus on a book called Handa’s Surprise, we will be retelling and re-enacting the story as well as talking about our favourite fruits and healthy eating. Handa’s Surprise is set in Kenya, and as part of our Black History Month focus in the last two weeks of the half term, we will be learning more about Kenya, as well as taking part in the whole-school focus on the work of African and Caribbean artists. As soon as all of the children are in school we will begin out daily phonics sessions which will enable the children to begin reading and writing.

In maths we will be learning key times of the day, thinking and talking about numbers of personal significance and  working on 1:1 correspondence. We will also be matching, sorting and comparing amounts, comparing size, mass, capacity and exploring pattern. Wherever possible we will be linking our maths learning to other areas of the curriculum and we will be exploring these concepts through the use of concrete resources and games.

In PE we will be experimenting with different ways of moving and we will be learning to jump and land appropriately. 

In RE we will exploring the question-Who Made The Wonderful World? We will be focusing on thinking about who and what is precious to us in order to help the children understand that Christians believe we are precious to God. We will also be learning the story of creation.
