Reception– Autumn Term Overview

In Maths we will be concentrating on numbers 0-10, to gain an understanding of one more, one less and their position on a number line. We will also focus on our counting to ensure that we have one-to-one correspondence. We will match, sort and compare amounts and then move onto comparing size, mass and capacity. Finally, we will look at pattern. 

 At home: You could practise touch counting objects to 10, ensuring that the children have one-to-one correspondence. 

In English and Topic our theme this half term is 'Let my Light Shine.' Throughout the term we will be learning about 'Ourselves' and 'What makes us Special' and talking about different cultures and celebrations and how this makes us unique. Finally, we will be exploring different occupations and discussing what we might like to do when we are older! Our initial core story is 'Elmer' by David Mckee.

In Phonics, we are following a new scheme called: Read, Write Inc. We will be introducing this scheme to parents in the form of a workshop, keep a look out for a letter regarding this!

Please remember to bring water bottles and coats everyday and to come into school wearing your PE kit on a Tuesday.
