Reception – Brunel Class


Welcome to our class page!


Term 2


Wow 1 term down already! The first term went by so fast and we were amazed at how quickly the children all settled in. The first week back after half term can be a shock as the children need to adjust to getting back in a routine. After half term we would like to encourage the children to come into the class on their own as much as possible to further their independence. A member of staff will stay outside the classroom for any messages. 


This term the children are going to carry on  their daily phonic sessions but will be moving onto Phase 2. This is where the children begin to learn initial sounds beginning with s,a,t. A phonics meeting will be held to help parents with their own understanding of phonics. 


Our term focus will be beginning with stories and story telling. We will be using books such as Owl Babies and Bear Hunt for this. Then moving onto Christmas!


We will be getting changed for PE on the second Friday back of term - 10th November The children will need a PE kit for this date. 


We will keep you updated with dates for the phonics meeting and parents evenings as soon as we know. 


See you all after half term. Hope you all enjoy the rest!
