 Welcome to Ladybirds

Welcome to your first year in school and we are really excited to have you here at Farndon. We have lots of amazing and exciting activites planned this year. 

Mrs Bayley (Mon - Wed) and Mrs Cottle (Wed - Fri) are your class teachers. 

Mrs Edmond is our Teaching Assistant within Reception . 

 Autumn Term

Our topic for this half term is 'All About Me'. We are focusing on settling into our new learning environment and learning all about ourselves and each other. We will create a self portrait of ourselves for our class display. 

We will have a Harvest Festival in the village church where we will learn all about what harvest means and what we are thankful for. 

We will start to think about the changing seasons and look out for signs of spring. The children will go for an autumn walk and discuss what we see. 

We will celebrate Eurpoean Languages Day in September and the children will take part in a range of activities to support their learning and understanding of some European countries and languages.


Our PE day is WEDNESDAY. Please make sure your child comes to school in their PE Kit on Wednesdays and make sure they have a labelled drinks bottle. Just a reminder that our PE Kit is a red t-shirt, black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms and black pumps or trainers. 


Each Friday we post a class newsletter and a homework task onto Google Classrooms. This is usually a practical activity linked to the weeks learning. We also ask that you read or share a book with your child every day and we send home a book once a week from the class library. We follow Read Write Inc for phonics and during the year there will be activites and tasks linked to this.
