Autumn Term

Getting to know you

This half term the children will be participating in activities that will enable us to get to know them a bit better, and also enable them to learn our rules and routines.

Our topics for the half term are: 

  • All About Me
  • Autumn 
  • How we change
  • Our senses
  • Keeping healthy



Each week we will be learning 3 new sounds, which will be sent home in their phonics folder each day. Please practice these sounds with your child.


Tricky Words

We will also be learning a number of tricky words, which will also be sent home in their phonics folder. Please practice these words with your child.



Your child will soon start bringing home one reading book each week. Some of the books that they bring home will be picture books and some will be books with words. If the book has no words, please encourage your child to use the pictures to think of a story that they can tell themselves. To support your child, we ask that you write a comment each week about their reading. Please write about the books that we send home as well as other stories you read with your child including library books and bedtime stories. Please ensure all reading books and reading records are back in on Monday.



During this half term we will be:

  • Learning numbers 1 -5 and what they represent
  • Counting 1- 10



We will be learning to: 

  • Follow simple instructions 
  • Work on our balance – standing on one foot 
  • Understanding how our body moves


The Presentation from Meet the Teacher Evening can be found here.


A Few Gentle Reminders…

  • Please ensure your child brings a named water bottle to school each day.
  • Please make sure that you are prompt at pick up and drop off times.
  • Can you ensure that, if your child has long hair, it is tied back in a pony tail.
  • Please ensure that your child brings in their phonics folder every day.
