Learning Overview – Autumn One – 2021

Hello and welcome!

This half term we will be working hard at getting to know the children and settling them back into school routines.  We will be washing our hands lots and learning to follow the school rules.

Please make sure all of your children’s belongings are named.

PE

Your child will need to come to school dressed in an appropriate PE kit for the weather on a Tuesday for both classes.  Children will do indoor PE on a Friday but do not need a PE kit this half term.  We are practising taking off our shoes, socks and sweatshirts.

Phase 1 - Suggested Reading

Forest Fun

Mrs Mayhew’s class will do Forest Fun on a Thursday morning.  Children need to come suitably dressed ready to get dirty.  Wellies can be left in school as shoes will be needed later on in the day.

Mrs Brooks/Mrs Miola’s class will do Forest Fun on Friday afternoon.  They will need to bring their waterproofs with them to get changed at school.  These can be left in school with their wellies.

Reading

We will be changing our books three times a week.  Your child will also be bringing home a keyword decodable book that they will change once a week.  Please practise this book daily.  Please record in the reading diary provided.  When your child has read 100 times they will receive a reward.

This half term our topic will be Getting to know you.

Literacy

We will be using the story ‘The Little Red Hen’ as our main Literacy focus.  We will be acting out the story, using character voices, drawing pictures of the animals and using traditional story language.

Maths

Our Maths jobs will be matching and sorting, making comparison and exploring pattern.

Phonics

In Phonics we will be following the Letters and Sounds document.  Homework will be to practise the letter sounds and words which will come home each Friday once we have covered them in school.

It is vitally important to complete the homework so that your child does not fall behind with reading and writing.

Please private yammer your child’s class teacher if you have any queries.
