Autumn Term 2022

We have an exciting term ahead of us as the children begin their Moorhill Journey. We will learn new routines, make new friends and have many adventures.

We will learn and practise skills using the themes 'Who am I?' and 'How do we celebrate?' as inspiration.

We will use stories as hook's from which to base our learning, including:

  • Colour Monster
  • The Great Big Book of Families
  • ElmerĀ 
  • Real Superheroes
  • A superhero like you

In Reception we teach Phonics through Ruth Miskin's Read, Write, Inc (RWI).

Click on the buttons to find out more about how we teach RWI at school and how you can help at home.


In Reception we use Class Dojo as a way to communicate with families. We will post general messages to Class Story and individual things to each child's Portfolio.

Remember to check daily on our Class Dojo page for updates on your child's learning and ways to support at home.


Once we have learnt all the sounds your child will bring a book home to share with you. We use the Boom Reader app to log your child's reading. Make sure you download the app and sign in with the details given by school. It is important to listen to your child read on a daily basis and for them to repeat the same texts over again, as this builds up their blending skills.
