Autumn Term 2 2023


Hope you have had a relaxing half term break and are ready for the excitement this half term brings on the run up to Christmas.  We have settled in beautifully to our newly refurbished classroom and are appreciating the extra space and new facilities.

We are using Ready Steady Write for English and are looking forward to acting out and developing our appreciation for "The Secret of Black Rock" by Joe Todd Stanton working on a return narrative, through looking at the story structure of opening, build up, problem and ending.  We are busy with daily sentence snakes, to develop our writing skills.  In phonics reception will be starting phase three and year one continuing with phase five using the DfE validated synthetic phonics programme Ready Steady Phonics and emersing in phonetically decodable readers, as well as reading for pleasure.  

We continue with the Mastery mastering Numbers Programme for reception and year one.  The White Rose programme continues with addition and subtraction within ten, using part-whole models and working on number bonds and seeing patterns.  Reception are working within five and extending to within ten with lots of number comparison, counting, ordering and also looking at number bonds and patterns, in many practical ways.

Our topic on weather links together the Science work on seasonal change and weather, Geographical work with observing weather in the UK, but also looking at hot and cold areas of the world alongwith  developing mapping skills.  Our Design and Technology project is on free standing structures and weather vanes.  R.E. is focussing on giving and receiving of gifts with the period of Advent leading up to Christmas. We will be using Mini Mash to design and make in computing as well as using technology to support our learning across the curriculum.  In PSHE we will continue work on developing team skills and looking at emotions.  P.E. will be working on large ball skills and dance.  Music will enable lots of singing and performing of traditional songs and rhymes in the theme of Everyone.

Reception children will be accessing the EYFS curriculum developing ideas through the above topics and accessing continous provison to develop their characteristics of learning through playing and exploring, active learning, creating and thinking critically. 

If you have any questions or require any further information, don't hesitate to ask or email.

Thank you to all the parents/carers for your continued support and the opportunity to work with you in helping your children grow and develop.

Best wishes.

Mrs. Turner
