A message from your teachers - Autumn 2

Well done for completing your first half term at Cradley. We are all so proud of how well you have settled in to school life. You have learnt so many new routines and have worked really hard on your sitting and listening skills. We have worked together on our class rules 'Kind hands, kind feet and kind words' and have been so pleased with the way the children are now able to play together inside and outside of the classroom. 


Our daily routine

As the children move through their Reception year, our daily routine and timetable changes to meet their needs. During the second half of the Autumn term we will continue to offer lots of opportunities for indoor and outdoor play and exploration. We will continue to have focussed carpet times throughout the day to concentrate on our phonics, English and Maths skills. In order to further improve our fine motor skills this half term, we will be continuing with our daily dough disco sessions and will be beginning our Kinetic Letters handwriting lessons too - where we will be learning how to form our first family of letters in the air, in the sand tray and on white boards. Further details of the skills we are working on each week will be provided on the weekly class newsletter. 


Autumn 2 - How does the world change at this time of year?


During this topic the children will be investigating the world around them by finding, describing and naming Autumnal objects. We will focus on Autumn leaves and hedgehogs and will be using what we have learnt as inspiration for our art work.  We will be learning how to mix primary colours to create the colours needed for our Autumn leaf printing, learning how to shape clay to make hedgehogs and learning how to collage to make hedgehog pictures. 


There is such a lot to do this half term; we can not wait to get started. If you have any questions, please speak to one of the team and we will do our best to help. Please check the class newsletter (sent via ParentMail each Friday) and the class page on class dojo for further information about our learning in class. Take care everyone. 


Mrs Darby, Mrs Price, Mrs Raxton and Miss Attwood.
