Meet the teacher September 2019


EYFS Class Newsletter Autumn 1


Welcome Reception 2019!

We hope that you have all had a lovely holiday and we are excited to hear about all of the adventures that the children have had.

Here is an outline of what we will be working on this half term:


Numeracy focus We will be focussing upon numbers to 10- counting accurately, selecting the correct numeral and forming numbers
Reading Focus

Author of the Term: Julia Donaldson

We will start our daily Read Write Inc phonics sessions where children will embed and apply the sounds they have learnt so far.  Children will also be introduced to a range of high frequency words to aid their reading of simple sentences.  We will be discussing the stories that we listen to, looking at the words the author uses and what they mean.


Writing Focus We will start to write simple words using the sounds that we know
Topic All About Me


PE On a Friday we will have our PE lessons with Mrs Anderton.   Please make sure that children have their full PE kits in school all week and that all items of clothing have their names in.
Computing Using ipads and programmable toys
What can parents/carers do to help?
  • Completing homework – homework will be sent home on a Wednesday and should be returned on a Monday
  • Reading books with your child
  • Supporting your child in recognising numbers in the environment
  • Contributing to your child’s learning journey on Tapestry
 Learning Journey During your child’s time in reception their learning will be captured through observations, videos and photographs and uploaded onto Tapestry.  We appreciate that a huge amount of learning takes place at home and would really appreciate you uploading any special learning moments onto Tapestry.

Please do not hesitate to pop in at the end of the day if you have any questions or queries
