Welcome to our learning in Reception - Autumn 2


Welcome back, Reception!  It is so lovely to see the youngest children in the school getting so used to being a part of the school, and forming such lovely friendships.

This term our topic will be Hip Hip Hooray, and we will be looking at all the different celebrations that happen throughout the year – starting Hallowe’en and later in the term looking at the Christmas story.  We will also read and talk about Christmas, the different customs and traditions that are celebrated at that time of year, and we will write our own wishlists, or letters to Santa.


We have been reading Funnybones, by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, and learning the “Skeleton Dance” song in the story; we will then use this song to help us to learn about the human body, and label parts of a skeleton.

A lot of the other weekly topics this term will be child-led – based around what the children seem to enjoy doing during their activity choosing time.  Lots of the children have been enjoying role-playing at being pirates, and so next week we will read a book about pirates and base our learning around that.

In Numeracy, we will be starting to learn to add and subtract – one more and one less – and we will look at 3D shapes.
