Autumn 1 Newsletter
Reception Autumn 1
Welcome to Reception boys and girls! This year your teachers are going to be Miss Kendall and Miss Burns, along with Shelley and Kirsty.
We are very lucky this year as we have two classrooms....the Reception Classroom and Nursery Classroom! We can't wait for you to see the changes we have made- you are going to love them!
This half term we will be learning all about what shapes our world. We will be outdoors a lot, visiting the local area and getting to know what makes our area important to us. We can't wait to explore and find out interesting facts about the area we live in, as well as looking at different buildings and getting to make our very own houses too!
It is going to be a lot of fun and we have a range of areas set up for you to have fun whilst learning such as an Estate Agents, where you will be able to create your own homes to put up for sale!
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; 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 via FreeFlow.
See you soon!
Miss Kendall, Miss Burns, Shelley and Kirsty!
