Welcome to Year R!



Our topic for the Autumn Term is 'All About Me'. 


In our Literacy sessions, we will be using the following books: 

  • Harry and his bucketful of dinosaurs.
  • Funny bones
  • Can’t you sleep little bear?
  • Elmer
  • The rainbow fish
  • Pumpkin soup
  • The Gruffalos child
  • Lost and found
  • Blue Penguin
  • The Jolly Postman


Using these books, we will be working on sequencing stories and discussing events from the beginning, middle and end. We will eventually move on to completing story maps and start to work on writing labels and captions linking to what we have read.


Our Maths sessions will focus on embedding our knowledge and understanding of numbers to 5 so that we have a mastery of each number and its place value. We will solidify our learning through songs, games, counting out and sequencing, and patterns within numbers. 


In Expressive Arts and Design we will be looking at what makes us unique and will be creating our own self-portraits. Design and Technology will have us designing and making our own snowman as we head into the winter months. Music will allow us to practice our ability to move in time with the music and experiment with a range of instruments.


Our Understanding of the World topic focuses around our families and we will be discussing these through the creations of our own family trees. We will be looking closely at the natural world around us and which animals live within it. We will then go on to compare these with those that live in other parts of our world. Our knowledge of these differences will then be put to the test when creating out own frozen pictures using a program on our IPADS! 


In RE we will be looking at what happens in a church and then at how different people celebrate events and occasions depending on their religion and beliefs. This links nicely into our PSHE topic of how we are all different! 


Obviously a majority of this learning will take place through our play, where discussion will be recorded for you to see on Tapestry. Please remember to complete tapestry forms so that you can be involved as much as possible in your child's reception journey! 


PE will take place on a Friday morning so please ensure that your children come in dressed and ready in their PE kits. Can I also stress that everything is labelled with your child's name to prevent anything getting lost or muddled! :D


I can't wait to get started!
