Autumn Term


Why Do Leaves Go Crispy?


Welcome to Reception Class! In Reception all of our topics are thought provoking and ask the children a question. This term we will be considering ‘Why Do Leaves Go Crispy?’


Our topic this half term is looking at Autumn and how the seasons change throughout the year. We will be exploring different woodland environments and some of the animals that live in the woodland. We will also be looking at the changes that take place in the trees over the seasons and in particular, how they change during Autumn. We enhance our topics by reading good quality narratives -some of the titles include; Farmer Duck, The Little Red Hen, The Gruffalo and The Scarecrows Wedding.


We have some wellies available for children to wear in the outdoor area but children can bring a pair of their own if preferred. Please ensure they are clearly labelled with names. Wellies help to keep school shoes clean whilst the children can still have fun in the mud!


We love to upload photographs of our time in Reception and we hope you will keep checking back to see what we have been up to.
