Welcome to Reception!
Autumn 1
Autumn 1 is about settling into the classroom routines, learning boundaries and expectations. The children learn how to access the classroom and resources independently.  We are focusing on strengthening their finger muscles ready for writing through fine motor skills activities. The children are introduced to phonics, learning letter names and the sounds they make. In maths, we will focus on counting and recognising numbers to 10. Our topic this half term is 'All about me'.

Autumn 2
During Autumn 2, we will be starting to segment and blend our sounds for reading. We will be learning to form letters correctly. We will continue to develop an understanding of the value of number and explore shape and measure. We will find out about different celebrations and we have a Christmas nativity to prepare for which will include lots of songs and actions.


Spring 1
During Spring 1, we are continuing to develop our segmenting and blending skills for reading. We will be working hard to form our letters using the cursive script and writing words independently. In maths, we will be finding 1 more and 1 less than a given number and will move onto simple addition. Our topic for this half term is People who help us. During this topic we will be visiting the Fire Station.
