Autumn Term

Over the next couple of months, we will witness your children settle into new routines, begin building lovely friendships and start their journey in becoming independent learners.

Children are more likely to engage with their learning if presented with meaningful contexts and a keen interest in the subject matter. Therefore, the path we take to explore new concepts and skills this term will be based solely on your children’s ‘favourite things’ (as discussed on home visit).


Thank you for all the completed forms so far!

This term we will have ample of opportunities to discuss growing and planting as we think about Harvest. This special occasion will be marked with a Harvest Festival. There will be the chance for you to watch your child take part in the key stage one festival where our class will sing a rehearsed song!


Key concepts being taught this term:

Personal, Social and Emotional Development (PSED)- Understanding and cooperating with some boundaries and routines


Communication and Language (CL)- Using simple sentences to communicate meaning
