Our Learning Journey – Autumn 2018
Our theme is ‘The Big Multicultural Adventure’ and our challenge is to present to parents where we would like to travel in the world. Our learning for this challenge will have strong links to ‘Understanding of the World’. We will begin by looking at ourselves and comparing our lives with other children in our class. We will find out about our local area and different cultures and countries around the world and compare them with each other. For our hook to introduce our learning about other countries we will be joining Nursery for a music and dance workshop.
PE will be once a week. Please make sure your child has a NAMED PE kit in school at all times.
In Maths we will be focusing on accurate counting of sets and number formation.
The children have already started their phonics lessons. They will be taught a new sound each day using the Read Write Inc phonic scheme. Our focus for this term will be for the children to hear simple words when they are sounded out for them.
My classroom release for planning and leadership will usually be on Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon during this time Mrs Leighton will lead the class and we welcome Mrs Allen to our team, who will support teaching in Reception on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
If you have any questions about your child’s learning or how best you can help at home, please do not hesitate to ask myself or Mrs Leighton.
Homework – Little and Often!
Children will have a school reading book coming home with them each week. We can’t stress enough how important it is to support your child at this early stage in reading, when learning continues at home your child will progress much faster. Please also ensure you sign your child’s purple reading diary/book when you read with them.
Extra Spare Clothing.
Accidents will happen!!! Any parents. that have spare pants, trousers and skirts that they can donate to school would be very much appreciated.
Thank you for your support.
