Autumn Term

This term we will be exploring the question ‘Would you rather live in a forest or on a farm?’ Over the term, we will explore farms and forests in more depth, learning about animals that live there, their babies and food products. As we learn about farms and forests, we will create our own farm and forest in our classrooms. We will add to our artwork every week with the knowledge we gain. We then hope to share our art work with Asterbury Place care home, for their residents to admire.


In maths this term, we will be learning to; rote count, count objects by touch counting, subitising (saying the amount on sight), order numbers and name shapes. Please help your child practise counting, writing and reading numbers to 10 as often as possible. In English this term, we will be immersing ourselves in a range of non-fiction and fiction texts about farms and forests. We will begin to learn sounds so that we can start to read and write words and sentences.

*Reception will have PE every Thursday (please make sure kit is named)

*In Reception children are expected to read every day. The best way you can support your child with their learning is to read with them daily. Children will collect gems in their treasure chests every time they read at least four times a week Keep reading!
