Autumn 1 Newsletter
Reception Autumn 1
Welcome to Reception boys and girls! This year your teachers are going to be Miss Burns and Miss Rodham.
This half term we will be learning all about Our Fragile Earth, where will be learning a lot about how to take care of the environment as well as promoting recycling. We will be outdoors, visiting the local area and getting to know what we can do to look after our local environment. Our class text is 'Handa's Surprise', where we will be linking this to our whole school theme, looking at the impact of farming and what we can do to support the environment.
Remember, it is very important that you bring in your own water bottle, PE kit which consists of a red top, black shorts and plimsoles or trainers; wellies and weather appropriate clothing!
We will be outside a lot of the time so make sure you have suitable items. All personal belongings should have names in, which we will be encouraging children to be recognise.
During Autumn, we will be encouraging children to recognise their own names, and begin to form letters to start to write their own name. Letters and numbers will be focused on and we will be wanting children to be able to recognise and identify letters and numbers around them. We have a lot of fun activities planned for you and can't wait to learn new things.
We know it is going to be different and you might feel a bit nervous coming into Reception, but that is normal and we will be doing everything we can to make sure your transition into your new class goes as smoothly as possible. We can't wait to get you in the setting and settled!
Any questions or queries, then we will be happy to help. You can arrange a time to speak to us by contacting the office or ourselves.
See you soon!
Miss Burns and Miss Rodham
