Welcome to our Reception Class Autumn Term page 

Our current topic leading up to Christmas is Light and Dark.


We will be reading the story Star in the Jar and using this as a stimulus for our literacy work. The story is about a little boy who finds a star and goes on a journey to try and find out who the star belongs to. 


In Mathematics, we will be focusing on counting, ordering and recognising numbers and we will also practise writing them too. We will be working practically with counting apparatus to compare quantities and we will be combining groups to find totals.


Our topic work will have a Science focus. We will be learning about sources of light and shadows. We will read the story the Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark and the children will be shown how to make a simple circuit using wires a battery and a bulb.
