Reception Overview

Our topic for the Autumn term is “Little Red Riding Hood”. During this unit we will be creating story maps, retelling the story, acting out the story using masks, finger puppets and other props. The children will learn about different materials and changes in nature that happen in the different seasons, as well as number of the week and recognising the phase 2 sounds. After the half term we have a new topic, ‘Let’s celebrate us’ and we will be looking at different celebrations and different cultures and similarities and differences between them.

In the Spring term the topic is ‘Into the woods’ and we will be looking at stories that have settings in the woods, our main story being ‘The Gruffalo’. The children will be learning about the 2D and 3D shapes, different groups of animals, their characteristics and habitats, as well as number of the week. In Phonics we will continue learning phase 2 as well as phase 3 sounds and tricky words. After half term we have a new topic, ‘Oink!Baa!Roar!’ which focuses on farms.

In Summer term the topic will be ‘Morocco’ and then ‘Take one picture’. The children will learn about geography and different areas and countries around the world. We will be learning about measuring time, length, weight and solving problems and continue with the number of the week. In Phonics some of the children will be starting phase 4 and everybody will be revising phase 2 and 3 sounds and tricky words.

Clothing: We would be really grateful if you could make sure that all clothing has your child’s name on it please.
