Welcome to our learning in Reception - Autumn 2


Welcome back to Reception for the new term – Christmas is just around the corner and everyone is settling nicely into the routines of school life!

This term in Reception, we have begun by learning all about the body – this tied in nicely to Hallowe’en, as we read Funnybones, by Janet and Allan Ahlberg, and looked at skeletons.  We will be looking at other celebrations this term too – Diwali is next, and we will learn about the story of Rama and Sita, and then Christmas, when we will look at the Christmas story and discuss how different people celebrate the holiday in different ways.

In Numeracy we will be starting to look at adding and taking away, and we will also be looking at 3D shapes.  We will also be continuing with our weekly reading workshop.

We will also soon be beginning our rehearsals for our Christmas performance – which will be Whoops-a-Daisy Angel, which will involve learning lots of exciting songs.

Christmas came early to Halstow yesterday, with not only a gift shop run by the Friends of Halstow, Christmas jumper day, and Christmas lunch, but also a visit from Santa Claus who visited every class in the school, bringing a gift for each child. A massive thank you to the Friends of Halstow for making this happen, and to everyone involved who helped the day run so smoothly and festively!
