Key Information

Over the course of the Autumn term we will be focusing on teaching the children about a variety of festivals and celebrations. In addition to this we have selected other weekly topics using the wishing well, where children can let us know what they want to learn about. As the term draws to a close we will be exploring changing seasons and the traditions that different people practice at this special time. We are looking forward to exploring lots more of the children’s interests throughout the year! Please help us to do this by letting us know what you and your children have been up to at home through Tapestry.


Weekly guided reading groups will soon be taking place, where the children share books as a group, explore different sounds and learn sight words. Make sure to check your child’s reading folder to see which exciting book they have bought home each week. In their folder there is a Reading Record where we will explain what we have done in Guided Reading each week. We would love you to record their reading progress each week so we can see what you have been doing at home! This can include other books you are reading with them as well as their book from school.


We will be having PE lessons on a weekly basis. We would appreciate it if all children could bring a full, named PE kit at all times. To support the children with their changing, please encourage independence at home. 


The children will be going to Forest School where they will be creating their own Stick Man, making Journey Sticks and exploriing the Pocket Park. As the weather gets even colder and the pocket park gets muddier, please ensure that your child always has wellington boots available and a warm, scarf and hat.


Every week the children will be cooking up a storm in the kitchen. The children will see how ingredients change as they are heated, mixed together or cooled. So that we can continue our learning around food, please remember to use ParentPay to make a contribution towards the cost of the ingredients.



Home Learning

Reading Books: The children will be bringing home their group reading book to share with you, please enjoy this and encourage them to pick our sounds in the story and read it together with you. It is important that this remains in their book bag when not being read.


Sounds: Please continue to work on sounding out the letters of the alphabet and spotting these using your alphabet mat.


Sight Words: The children will be given a list of the 100 most frequent words, please introduce these to them and work on them noticing and reading these.
