Reception

Welcome to Diamond Class!

Forest School Presentation

This half-term in Diamond Class we will be starting to look at different celebrations such as Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas. We will be learning about the Christmas story whilst preparing for our Nativity performance. 

 

We will also be starting Forest School this half-term, which will be run weekly by Mrs Townsend who is a trained Level 3 Forest School Leader. The children will have the opportunity to explore in an open and natural environment, learning about the changes through the different seasons and developing their independence as they explore in a safe, closely monitored, child friendly woodland environment. 

 

We will also be starting Dough Disco - a fun, daily, whole class approach to developing fine motor skills by using repetitive actions to mould our playdough along to rhythmic music.

Phonics sounds

A video to show parents how we teach children the pure phonics sounds through our Read Write Inc. programme.

Our topic this half-term is "All About Us" - we will be talking about ourselves, our families and the things that make us special.

We will also be looking at Traditional Tales such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs. 

 

Our class page will be updated during the half-term with resources to help you support your children's learning.
