Autumn term in Reception


This half term our topic will be:


All About Me


 We will be settling into school and making new friends as we learn about:

  • Things I like
  • How I feel
  • Me and my family
  • My body and senses
  • Being healthy
  • Celebrating birthdays

                                                        ...and much more!


 Books we will be reading include:

  • Dogger
  • Lucky Duck
  • How Are You Feeling Today?
  • Me and My Family Tree
  • Funny Bones
  • Oliver's Fruit Salad
  • Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose
  • Non-fiction books about the body and senses
  • Stories about birthdays



In Religion we will start by learning about Creation and the gifts God has given us. We will explore different talents and ways that we can help each other, and then find out about people who care for us. This will include learning about some of the main events, characters and places in the life of Jesus.

Topic Web for Autumn A - All About Me


Each Monday a 'Weekly Topic Focus' will be posted on the website which will give details of what we are learning at school. There will also be suggestions of things you can do at home to link to the things we are learning. Don't forget to check your child's book bag every day for letters, pictures and information.

We will start PE lessons after the first few weeks of settling in and will then be doing PE every Thursday afternoon. Your child will need a full PE kit including pumps. Please make sure every item is clearly labelled.

Please send your child with suitable clothing for outdoor play every day - particularly a rainproof coat (clearly labelled) and  a sun hat when the weather is warmer. Please could you also work with your child to help them to take off and put on their jumpers, cardigans and coats independently, including zips and buttons.


 To follow shortly:

We have several events coming up this term including:

  • Phonics Workshop for parents
  • Welcome Service at St Christopher's Church
  • Parent's Evening

Keep your eyes open for dates.


We are looking forward to a super half term as we embark on some exciting learning journeys together.
