Learning to live and living to learn

Autumn 2 - Sparkle, Shimmer and Shine!

Term 2 - Sparkle, Shimmer and Shine!

 

This term, Reception will be learning about different celebrations and festivals. In particular, we will be thinking about the important role that “light” has to play in these occasions. We will also be finding out what a light source is and how shadows are created.

If you and your family celebrate one of the festivals that we will be learning about, we would love for you to share with us how you do so. Perhaps you could send in some photos for your child to share with us or we could arrange to video call you and learn more about how you and your family celebrate.

 

Please find an overview of our topic and maths learning each week below:

Week 1: Birthdays and Firework Night / White Rose - “It’s Me 1, 2, 3!”

PE

Oak Class will have their PE session on a Wednesday - please send them to school dressed in their PE kit. 

 

Supporting your child at home:

Daily reading: Continue to support your child’s reading journey using Bug Club. Please record their reading on Seesaw, we really appreciate the comments, photographs and videos you have posted so far.

 

Ten Town: Every child has access to Ten Town online at home. Please use this website to support their early numeracy and numeral formation skills.

 

WOW slips: Please acknowledge your child’s achievements at home by filling in a WOW slip. These slips will be shared with the class and then displayed on the class Wow wall. We have extra blank wow slips at school, please let us know when you need some more.
