To kick start the Autumn term, the topic in Reception will be 'All About Me'. We will be finding out all about our new friends and what makes us all unique and special. Our focus story for the topic will be 'Elmer' by David McKee. A video of Mrs Evans and Miss Penny reading this lovely story can be found under the 'Parent' tab on our website . We will extend our discussions to talk about our homes and who we live with, including our pets! We will then link our learning to the traditional story 'The Three Little Pigs', who have to go and build their own houses. 
The children's 'All About Me Boxes' will be a great way to get to know the children- we are looking forward to sharing them with each other! You can watch Mrs Evans and Miss Penny showing theirs on the 'Parent' Tab under 'Starting School'. 
This is our Reception Library- we love to visit the library each week. We can take a book home each week to share with our families at home to promote the love of reading.

Wow Reception! What an amazing start to the first half of autumn term.
As the season changes, we have loved getting to know the story 'The Squirrels Who Squabbled' by Tim Field. The story is rich with vocabulary, wonderful illustrations and a moral: that it is better to share good things with our friends, than squabble over the last nut! The story has provoked interesting discussions, which have been aided by our autumn talking tables which contain different items found in the story.
We have had a crafty focus this term: the children have been learning about techniques including collage and leaf rubbings to create texture on their creations. We have continued to work on our scissor control, and have cut out our animal creations for a new autumn display.
We have continued to focus on our developing friendships, and are recognising kindness and other friendly behaviours.
We are working hard on following our school rules and routines, and have started awarding a 'Star of the Week': a child who has gone above and beyond to be a Sandy Star!
