Welcome to our learning in Reception - Autumn1


A very warm welcome to this year’s Reception children.  It is lovely to see everyone settling in nicely, and getting used to the new routines of being in school.

This term our topic will be Ourselves, and we will be drawing self-portraits and talking about ourselves and our family members.  This will help us with getting to know each other and the class.

We will be reading about the Large Family – 5 Minutes’ Peace, by Jill Murphy – and discussing who is in the family, and who is in our own families, and how every family is different.


Most of the term we will be working on settling into the school routine, and we will be working hard at practicing tidying up, lining up, and moving around the school.  We will also look at some counting songs in Numeracy, and practice our numbers 1-10.
