Autumn Term 1 

This term is very busy for the children who are starting school. During the first few weeks, the children will be learning about school life, following new routines and making new friends. We will be focusing on the children's social and emotional well being and ensuring that children feel as settled as they possibly can.

In Literacy, the children will begin to develop their early writing skills, making and learning sounds using Read, Write Inc. Children will be forming letters using ditties to help them remember their shapes and starting points. Children will begin to explore the letters in their name and will begin to write other captions and labels.
