Autumn 2


This term we are learning all about celebrations...


In Phonics we will be using our 'harder to read and spell words' in a sentence and learning our Phase 3 sounds. Please see weekly Home Learning.  In Literacy we will be exploring texts such as Rama and Sita, Harvest days, The Tiger that came to Tea and The Nativity. 


In Maths, we will be looking at classifying objects, exploring weight and measure, along with copying and continuing patterns. 


In RE, we will be learning about God's Family and preparing for Advent. The children will be performing a Nativity for Parents and Carers at the end of term. 

 Key Information
Reading Books

In Reception school reading books are changed weekly. Your child will be allocated a book change day, which you will be notified of in the Autumn Term. St Catherine will change their books on a Wednesday. If there is no comment in your child's Reading Record we will assume you have not had a chance to read with your child. Please record the text title(s) in your child's reading record. 



P.E. DayOur P.E. day is Friday. P.E. kits should be worn in school on Fridays. Long hair needs to be tied back and earrings are not allowed to be worn in school at any time. 


Forest School


Our Forest School day is every other Friday morning.  Please make sure your child has their forest school kit and wellies in school.
