Reception Autumn Term 2
Welcome back, we hope you had an enjoyable half term break. We are looking forward to an exciting seven weeks full of fantastic learning opportunities.
Our stories for the next few weeks are owl babies and the Oliver Jeffers books- ‘The Way Back Home’ (lots of space adventures) as well as ‘How to Catch a Star’.
We are also exploring the effects of Light and Dark- the children will have fun playing with torches in their ‘dark role play caves’. We will learn about nocturnal animals, keeping safe in the dark as well as about shadows.
There are lots of different celebrations happening around the world during this term albeit very low key this year, including Diwali, Remembrance Day, Bonfire night and of course Christmas. The children will be learning about these events and discussing, if and how their families celebrate different occasions.
We are very proud to be a Mindup school and this means that the children will continue to practice mindful breathing at least three times a day. They know this will calm their brain and will help them to learn. They have really enjoyed learning about the different parts of the brain and what they do. We shall also be exploring using our senses through Mindful listening, smell, taste and touch.
Finally, we would like to thank you for your continuing support with your child’s reading and learning at home. Just a reminder that the book change box is outside the classrooms. Please put books in there once you have read the books twice.
Thank you for your continuing support.
