Autumn Term 2
Welcome back, we hope you all had a lovely half term break.
This term we will be continuing with our Phonics, and moving into teaching Phase 3 of Letters & Sounds.
We will be finishing learning our numbers 1-10 in Numeracy, and begin to apply our knowledge of number to addition and subtraction.
We will begin practising for our Nativity play, where your children may receive an actor, singer or dancer part. You will be invited to watch their performance nearer the time. We will learn all about the Christmas story and we will enjoy lots of different Christmas related activities in December.
In PE, we will be participating in Gymnastics lessons, involving balancing, jumping, rolling and using apparatus.
There will be lots of fun activities to participate in and we're very much looking forward to this term.
This week, as we have been learning about Autumn and Harvest, we explored the vegetables that are currently being harvested across the country. We used our senses and talked about how they smelt, felt, tasted and what they looked like. We carefully cut up the vegetables and added them to our soup maker with some stock and water.
Once it was cooked, we tasted the soup and talked about what it tasted like. We also wrote a shopping list and tried to remember the ingredients we had used.
This week we've been learning all about Autumn. We visited the Nursery Garden to look at the leaves that has fallen and we talked about all of the different colours we could see on the leaves before they start to turn brown.
Please remember there will be a parent workshop on Thursday 3rd October in the Infant Hall at 9:10am.
We will discuss reading and writing in Reception, and how you can help your child at home.
We hope to see you there.
What a wonderful start to the new year we have had. The children have settled into their new classes wonderfully, and are eager and enthusiastic to learn.
Our classes this year are:
RB - Miss Bradbury & Mrs Chohan
RL - Miss Lee & Mrs Satnam
RP - Mr Pendry & Miss Mahmood
Support staff - Mrs Dhinsay, Miss Kundalia, Miss Begum & Mr Hoq.
We understand that part-time hours are difficult for some parents who work, study or have other children to drop off and pick up. These part-time days are important to aid a positive transition but also to help us familiarise ourselves with your children and yourselves; especially for safeguarding purposes.
The children will start full time tomorrow, Thursday 12th September, 8:55am - 2:55pm, other than the children who have been told specifically that they will have a longer transition.
This term we have lots of exciting lessons planned, focusing on Autumn, Harvest and World Food Day. Our activities will involve working on our cutting skills, exploring the outdoor area, planting bulbs for Spring, sequencing familiar stories and ordering objects by size.
There will be a parent workshop in October, which you will receive a letter for. This will explain about their reading books, our new handwriting policy and any homework we may send home.
If you have any questions please book an appointment with your child's teacher, or wait behind after all of the children have been dismissed at the end of the day.
