Our priority for the Autumn term is that the children feel safe, happy and secure in their new environment and that they build relationships with the other children in their class and the adults who are working with them. We want the classrooms to be busy and fun places where the children can develop the skills to become independent and enthusiastic learners.

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

Our topics this term are:

· Me and My Little World

· In the Night Sky

· Festivals (ongoing throughout the year)

Through these topics, we will be covering the seven areas of learning and development of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Three Prime Areas  - Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, Social and Emotional Development,

Four Specific Areas - Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

More information on the topics will be sent home in the next few weeks.

We will also begin our phonics teaching this term and more details about the ways you can support with this will also be sent home as this gets underway.

Full details regarding the daily routines in Reception can be found in our Autumn letter to parents which is attached below.

We are looking forward to a great term ahead!
