Learning & Curriculum in Reception

Termly Overview  - Autumn 1

Our topic for this Term is 'Marvellous Me' whilst the children are part time, leading into 'My Friend Bear'. We have exciting new role play areas within our classrooms and the outside area. We will be focussing on wellbeing and involvement to ensure that the children are settled and in a happy place to learn.


We are starting to learn our Set 1 phonics letters. This term we will deliver Read, Write Inc as a whole class, before splitting into smaller reading groups which will challenge them appropriately. Children will work each day to focus on their reading and writing. You can help them by sharing reading each night and practising their letter sounds, e.g. looking at signs when you are out and about in your environment.

Our Reading corners are a place where children can curl up and lose themselves in a book or transport themselves to exciting new worlds. We love to celebrate our Reading Role Models - our amazing mums, dads, grannies and grandpas, aunties and uncles, brothers and sisters and friends who have supported and inspired our love of books.

This term we will focus on number recognition, ordering and 1 to 1 counting (making sure the children can count objects accurately without double-counting or missing any out). We will also be looking at naming 2D shapes and exploring simple patterns.
