An overview of the academic year
For many of your children Autumn term will be the first transition and experience of being in school. You will have the opportunity to attend a group meeting with other parents and your child's teacher. Children will be set home learning for the first time which consists of both reading and written tasks.
Children will go on a trip to the local postbox to send their letter to Santa. Some of the books that we will be reading, which will form the theme for all of our learning include: 'The Snowman', 'The Jolly Postman', 'The Nativity' and 'Aliens love Panta Claus'.
The children will now be in their second term at school and are a lot more settled into the routines and school life at Earlsmead!
You will meet with your child's teacher 1:1 this term to discuss their progress and ways that they can be supported with their learning. Children will go on a trip to the soft play centre 'Jungle Monkeyz'. Some of the books that we will be reading, which will form the theme for all of our learning include: 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt', 'The Rainbow Fish', 'Night Monkey Day Monkey' and 'What The Ladybird Heard'.
The children will now be in their final term of Reception before starting Year 1. You will be given a written report of your child's attainment at school and the opportunity to discuss this with their teacher if you have any queries. Children will be invited to join after school clubs such as Mini Games, French and Homework Club. Children will be going on an educational excursion to The Science Museum. Some of the books that we will be reading, which will form the theme for all of our learning include: 'Goldilocks', 'The Three Little Pigs' and 'Little Red Riding Hood'.
Children engage in both play-based and literacy-themed learning. The curriculum 'Development Matters' is followed.
