Autumn Term

Spring Term

Summer Term

Please find links to our class timetable and planning below:

This half term our projects are:


Me and My Community

This project supports children with settling into the new rules and routines of school and encourages them to make new friends and feel confident in their class. It teaches children about being helpful, kind and thoughtful at home and at school. This project also teaches children how they are unique and special, the importance of friendship and how people in their family, school and local community are important and can help them.


Exploring Autumn


This project teaches children about the natural changes that happen during the season of autumn, including how the weather changes, why trees lose their leaves and how wild animals prepare for winter.


PE lessons will be every Wednesday so please remember to  wear PE kit to school.

Please make sure all items of clothing are named as this makes returning them to the correct child much easier! This includes shoes, plimsoles and wellies, and any spare clothes you put inside their PE bag.

Talk Through Stories


Talk through stories grows children's spoken vocabulary drawing on the best of children's literature.

Each week we will be reading a different story and learning new vocabulary.


Our Autumn term books are:

Blended Learning

In the event that your child has to remain at home, during periods of self-isolation, or in the event of a local or more widespread lockdown, we will provide blended learning for your child. This will normally be the activities posted on Class Dojo at the beginning of each week.
As we progress through the year it will be more appropriate to access lessons/activities from the Oak Academy, for Reception these are blocks of learning linked to a story or theme. In this case I will add you to the Cherry Class Blended learning Class Dojo page for the duration of your isolation period.
