Caterpillars 2023 - 2024

Mrs Chapman Brown

Reception Teacher

  Welcome to Caterpillars

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 Chapman Brown is your class teacher. 

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 llearning all about ourselves and each other. We will create a self portrait for our class display.

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

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

We will celebrate European 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 P..E day is Wednesday. Please make sure that your child comes to school in their P.E.kit and brings a labelled drinks bottle. Just a reminder that our P.E kit is  a red T-shirt, black shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms and black pumps.


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