What Are We Learning This Term 


Nursery and Reception

Welcome to the EYFS 

Nursery - Caterpillar Class - with Mrs Johnson, Mrs Wilde and Mrs Scott



Reception - Butterflies Class – with Mrs Allen, Mrs Hullett and Mrs Weatherill

Reception – Ladybirds Class – with Mrs Wilks and Miss Islip




What are we learning about? 

In Reception this term our topic is ‘Why do Squirrels hide their nuts?’ We will be learning about woodland creatures and the changes that happen during the autumn in preparation for winter. 


This will help us to understand hibernation and give us an appreciation for living things and our environment. 


Within this topic we will be learning about different woodland creatures and their similarities and differences. We will also plant bulbs in our garden in preparation for the spring.   


In Literacy we are continuing the Read, write, Inc. programme. We will also be reading a variety of stories to help improve our vocabulary and this will aid our speech and language skills. We will also continue to learn to write our names and learn to write CVC words. 


In Mathematics we are going to be focusing on reciting, counting and recognising numbers to 10.We will use the numicon resources to help understand place value and to aid us with our counting skills. 


Reading Books and Library 

When the children are blending they will be given a reading book to take home, please make sure you read at least three times a week. The children can also choose books from our school Library, which they can share with you at home. 


Useful Websites 


If you have any concerns or would like to speak to a member of staff about anything please see the member of staff on the door and they will pass on to the class teacher.


Thank you and kind regards,
