In the autumn term, Reception’s topic is Identity and Diversity. We will be learning about families, roles and responsibilities and how we can help others in need. Identity and Diversity will help us to learn that although as families we all have differences; we also can share a lot of similarities. We will be learning about each other’s favourite family food and recipes which will we collate to form a community cook book. This will support us in learning about the different cultures in our local area. Our aim is to have a family display in our classroom including having pictures of our families.
In English, we will be reading 'All are Welcome' and 'Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street'.
In Maths, we have been matching objects to numerals. We will link our family topic in with this and count how many siblings, pets, people we live with as a class. This will help us to practise our counting.
Our phonics learning this term is coming to the end of phase 1 and we will be starting phase 2 this half terem. We are beginning to start rhyming in our lessons. We are continuing with our listening walks in the classroom and outdoors. This has helped us to recognise different sounds and practise the different noises that we can make.
We are really excited to be starting forest school after October half term. Our forest school day will be a Wednesday.
Our reading books are changed on a Thursday. Parents and siblings can support the children with their reading by trying to read every day and asking the children some questions about the book.
