Hello and welcome to the Acorns class
Firstly, I would like to welcome you all again to Chacewater School. We are delighted to welcome you and your child to our Reception class and we can’t wait to get stuck in to the amazing learning we have planned for the upcoming year. This year the Acorns class will be taught by Mrs Glanville-Thomas and supported by Mrs White and Mrs Booker in the morning. We have worked in the Acorns class together for 3 years now and we love teaching the youngest of children in school to be enthused, excited and creative with their learning.
We are in our first term at Chacewater, the Autumn Term and we love this term for many reasons. This term allows us to really get to know your children, to transition them into school life, teaching them the rules, the routines and the learning that takes place this term. Our Autumn term consists of learning about ourselves with our topic ‘All About Me’ launching after the initial staggered starts. The second part of the Autumn Term we will be learning about celebrations and festivals that take place around this time of year. We will be looking at Halloween, Diwali, Bonfire Night and our all time favourite - Christmas. We will also be practicing for the Nativity which will be performed at the end of the year.
Alongside this, we will also be getting busy with our learning through the Literacy and Maths provision we set up during the morning provision. In RWI we will be learning the initial set 1 sounds and working on lots of hearing and listening games to support them with this. In Maths we will be focusing on a number of the week, starting with number 1 and each week looking at a new objective from the new revised framework.
We can’t wait to get started, welcoming your children into our class and to begin with the amazing journey ahead. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you should need to.
