Autumn Term Learning

During the first half of the Autumn term we will be learning about ourselves and people who help us.  Our newsletter and curriculum map will outline the activities your child will take part in, linked to the 7 areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage.



In Reception, children learn to orally retell different types of texts using actions. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Reception. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and practise retelling them at home with your child. Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!
