Autumn 1- Reception.

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome back after the summer holidays. I hope that you have all had a lovely rest and everyone is excited to be back to school.

My name is Miss Little and it is a pleasure to be your child’s reception teacher this year and I am very much looking forward to getting to know you all in my first year at Catchgate Primary School. 







This term our topic is; “Who Would You Invite”. We will be sharing the books; “Superworm” and “The Enormous Turnip”. These texts will be the focus of our literacy discussion, carpet dialogue and exploring different characters and authors, thinking about which characters are our favourite and who we would choose to invite to school. We will also be looking closely at making our own choices, being independent and thinking about who is important to us and why. I would also love to see the children celebrating their own achievements and understanding their own talents and skills.

We have lots of exciting things happening this half term- all of which will be displayed on our notice board- don’t forget to check it weekly for key dates and finding out all about what we have been up to during the week. I am sure we will have a fantastic year!
