Puffins - Reception
Autumn (2) 2022
We hope that you have all had a great half term break and enjoyed the autumnal weather over the week! 🍁🍂
We are looking forward to seeing the children back at school tomorrow and have lots of lovely activities planned for the next half term leading up to Christmas.
We will start with activities based around the story of 'The Three Little Pigs' - there will be lots of construction happening both in the classroom and in the outside areas!
We will also be learning about the celebrations this term, in particular over the next few weeks, Diwali and Fireworks!
Date for your diary - Thursday 1st December . Penguins and Puffins are going to start off your Christmas festivities with a short performance at 9.30 a.m. and we would love as many of you there as possible - more information to follow!
The children are enjoying their phonic sessions each morning, so far the children have learnt the following sounds...
s, a t, p, i, m and d. We will update you regularly with the sounds the children are learning via Tapestry.
We are also planning a 'phonics workshop' for you to attend in the near future where we will give you more information and ideas on how to support your child/ren through their journey with phonics and learning to develop a love for reading.

'The key person must seek to engage and support parents and/or carers in guiding their child’s development at home. They should also help families engage with more specialist support if appropriate'.
