Welcome to the Reception Class Pages for Derwent Road
Welcome to Reception at Derwent Road. Please find below information about your child’s learning topics this half term, including topic leaflets. Please see our specific class pages for photos and individual class learning journeys. You can also find our early years newsletter that will be uploaded weekly in our newsletter section below.
PE days are on a Monday and Wednesday for Swans and Tuesday and Thursday for Puffins. Children will require a sweatshirt/hoodie and jogging trousers/leggings and a pair of trainers (no laces). How we teach PE may depend on current government guidance. The children will also need to bring a named water bottle to school each day which they can access freely throughout the day.
Our topic for Autumn 2 will be all about Bears. This will include reading many exciting books where the main characters are bears. We will also be learning about real bears, finding out about the different types of bears and where they live in the world. We will also be learning about and celebrating our own version of the Hindu festival of light 'Diwali'. Towards the end of this half term our learning will become all about the most wonderful time of the year 'Christmas'.
You can find more information on our topic by accessing the topic web attached to our Reception class page . Please ask a member of our team if you have any questions.
Our topic for Autumn 1 will be Stomp, Stomp, Here I come. This brings to life the wonderful world of Dinosaurs. Our main focus alongside this topic will be getting to know your children and settling them into our new classroom routines. We will also be supporting them as they make new friends, explore the indoor and outdoor learning environment and take part in new experiences.
