Reception Themes and Topics Autumn 2

Autumn 2


This half term we will be learning all about the different people in our community who help us.

We have arranged a variety of visits into school to speak to us over the next half term. We have invited a  dentist, a fire fighter, a vet, a police officer, a nurse, an optician,  Mr Shaw and Mrs Wilson.


Remember to follow all our learning adventure on Seesaw. 


Also this half term we will be inviting parents in for our first stay and play. This is a great opportunity to speak to staff, share our learning space and enjoy lots of fun activities in our setting. 


We finish the half term celebrating Chanukah!
