Autumn 1 - Mrs Chisholm

What’s Inside?

This term the children in Reception will be learning about homes, habitats and our community.

Using our skills to explore our theme around different homes, we will be focusing on the stories ‘Handa’s Surprise’ by Eileen Browne and ‘Malala’s Magic Pencil’ by Malala Yousafzai, as well as many other wonderful books.

As writers we will be beginning to use cursive hand writing and practise writing our own name and new letter sounds.

As Readers we will be exploring new books, developing our listening skills and reading new sounds.

As Mathematicians we will investigate numbers and shapes in our world around us.

As Scientists we will be getting ready for Autumn and exploring the change in the seasons.

As Geographers we will be exploring animals and their habitats.

As Artists and Designers Inspired by Malala’s Magic Pencil we will be creating cityscapes and designing new buildings, as well as other creative projects.

As Philosophers we will develop our speaking and listening skills, aiming to listen and respond respectfully to the ideas of others and justify our own opinions.
