Literacy, Languages and Communication: 

  • This term, we are starting to work through Phase 3 phonics sounds and letter recognition. We are working hard to write our letters and some CVC words. 


  • During our writing sessions, we will be investigating well-known stories in order to explore new skills, such as comprehension, re-telling the stories through picture, dramatic re-enactment and eventually writing. 


  • We are also learning Welsh and Spanish- we are muy ocupado!


Mathematics and Numeracy

  • During the Autumn Term, we are learning all about number and place value. We practice counting to 20 and beyond, and use small parts to match these numerals. 


  • We are also going to be exploring other elements of mathematics (such as shape, money and patterns) through our inquiry.  


Inquiry-Based Learning: 

  • Reception will be investigating how people express themselves in a variety of different ways. This encompasses all expressive arts. 


  • The class have already presented super ideas of what they would like to learn more about in our pupil voice sessions.
