If you are self isolating please use the resource below for your child to still access online learning at home. Click on the subheading Reception :) 

Or alternatively, try some of the activities below that we will be learning about in class. 

For Autumn 2 we will be:
We will be learning about the seasons autumn and winter
We will be learning about celebrations 
We will be continuing our learning in phonics- to blend sounds to read and shall continue to recognise numerals and count amounts.
Children will begin to see themselves as writers- they will be ascribing to the marks they make and beginning to use sounds in their writing. Remember children have to write the sounds they hear, this doesn't have to be spelt correctly!

Children independently use all resources available in the learning environment.
Children begin to act out stories.





To learn about winter why not go on a winter walk with your grown up.

What can you see?

Frost? ice? Are there any leaves on the trees? What is everyone wearing? Can you see many animals? 

What's the weather like?

Cold? Icy?


Try drawing a winter picture using pencils, wool, paint etc..


The Jolly Christmas Postman

Watch the jolly postman and here are some ideas you can do at home: 

1. Make your own Christmas card to a family member and use your phonics to write a message e.g. 

To mum

meri crismas 

luv Emma 


2. Design a Christmas jumper ( you can draw your own or use our template below).

Think about the colours, patterns, festive things you may see at Christmas and lastly make it look pretty so you would want to wear it! 

3. Draw and design your own Christmas tree and cut it out. You can use our template or watch the step by step instructions. 

4. Write a letter to Santa ( you can use our template or any piece of paper) and post it to the North Pole! 

To Santa

Plees can I hav a tedi 

I hav bin good. 

Luv Emma 


How to Draw a Christmas Tree

Read this powerpoint at home with your child to learn about the season Autumn

Go on a autumn nature hunt and see if you can find the things below ( open file)

Try collecting some brown, yellow, red and orange leaves. Why not have an autumn leaf fight? throw the leaves at eachother!

Try making autumn pictures. You can use your leaves you found on your autumn nature hunt and do some leaf printing. Or try autumn finger painting. Remember to only use the colours red, orange, yellow and brown. If you don't have paints you can use colouring pencils

Phonics: Get your child to sound out things they may see in autumn. Let them write the sounds they hear in the words e.g. red leef, oranj, yello, winde. It doesn't matter if it is spelt incorrectly :)

Learn about Diwali by looking through this powerpoint below

Make a diya lamp to celebrate Diwali. Make some playdough or salt dough and decorate it. Or using an empty jam jar, decorate it and put a tea candle in it.

Watch London's Firework Display and talk about the noises they make and what they look like.

In class these are some of the words we came up with: bang, pop, explode, boom, crash, sparkly, glittery, amazing, beautiful, colourful, pretty. Can you think of anymore?

Make a colourful firework picture. Children can try and writing words to describe their fireworks e.g. lad, priti, bang, culafol, pop. Again remember these don't have to be spelt correctly.

Some home learning pictures- keep sending them in :)

We are having lots of fun playing with eachother and exploring the learning environment

For the first half term we will be focussing on the children:

  1. Settling in and happy in their new class/learning environment.
  2. Making friends with each other
  3. Exploring all areas of the learning environment and showing interests
  4. Learning the class routines and the expected behaviour
  5. Getting undressed and dressed independently and controlling their personal hygiene.
