Autumn Term


What are we doing this term?

We are Special!

The first few weeks in Reception are about building the children's confidence in their new setting and settling them into their new routines. 


This half term we will begin with 'We are special' and talking to each other about our treasure boxes. We will be observing the children's well-being and how this shows itself in their involvement in the activities in their indoor and outdoor learning environment.


As we get to know your children and their interests this will feed into our planning. This topic also helps the children get to know each other and find out the things they have in common as well as the things that make them unique.


There is so much to look forward to this term.  Please see weekly and termly newsletters for more information and important dates. 


Some things to look forward to are:

- Forest School Day (with Bushbabies)

- Hot chocolate with parents

- Self-portraits

- Autumn investigations

- Winter walks

- Celebrations (Halloween, Bonfire Night, Diwali, Christmas)

- Autumn Open Evening 'Quests' through the story of 'Bog Babies'

- Grandparents' Day

- Christmas and our very own Christmas Performance!


In the 'Letters and Information' section of the Reception page you will find our termly newsletters giving you information on what the children will be learning and how it links to the curriculum.  


Weekly Newsletters

Each week we send out a newsletter. These are uploaded to the web site each week. You will find them in the 'Letters and Information' section.



We will also add photographs of our activities in the gallery section.
