Our curriculum is designed around the needs of our young children and is organised into seven areas of Learning and Development.
Autumn 2: what we will be learning
A World of Colour
This half term will be learning about the colourful world around us. We learn about the seasonal changes all around us and enjoy a welly walk. We will be learning about different festivals and celebrations that take place at this time of year such as Diwali, Bonfire Night and Christmas.
We will continue to do lots of singing each day, learning new songs weekly and listening to some fabulous stories. We will also learn of by heart our focus story The Enormous Turnip. We will be practisng this all half term and adding our own actions to help us rmember it. We are hoping that by the end of the term we will be good enough so you can come and listen to us tell you the story.
Our key vocabulary this half term : Festival, celebration, Autumn leaves, fireworks, bonfire, hibernate, seasons and Christmas
Communication and language
We will be doing lots of talking and learning all about each other. We will read stories and discuss what the vocabulary means in them. Using new vocabulary day to day will be encouraged and will be a focus.
Personal, Social and Emotional
We will be focusing on developing our fundamental movement skills. These include runnig, jumping, hopping, catching and throwing. We will focus on one each week to help us improve it.
We will continue our fine motor mornings focusing on scissor skills, pencil control and develop the correct formation of letters during phonics.

We have been spending time getting to know the children and what they can do already. We will then support them to learn the things they struggle with ready to start our maths scheme, White Rose Maths in week 4.
Just like me - from week 4
Understanding the World
Expressive Arts and Design
Last week Reception had a special visitor!
The police came in to talk to us all about how they help us. We loved trying on their uniform!
We went pumpkin picking!
All the children had a great time picking their own pumpkins up on the field that we kindly donated by Mrs Dowson farm park. We then chopped them and scooped them and made our very own pumpkin soup! Yummy yummy!
