Hello and welcome to our class
Our learning is cross curricular and is linked to our termly topics.
Our main topic for the Summer Term 2022 is...
For the first half of the summer term we will look at ‘Let’s Take a Trip’ where we will be learning about different types of journeys on land and in the air and linking this to the types of transport we might use for each (bike, car, train, plane, hot air balloon etc).
For the second half of the term we will focus on ‘Land Ahoy!’ We will be learning about journeys on the water and journeys under the water, again linking this to the types of transport used (boat, submarine) We will finish the term learning about pirates!
Some of our main texts will be…On the Way Home, Mr Gumpy’s Car, The Train Ride, Mr Gumpy’s Outing, The Snail and the Whale, Pirates Love Underpants.
Throughout the term we will also look at different non-fiction texts and poetry linked to our topics to support our learning.
We will observe the different changes which happen in our local environment throughout the season of summer, moving into the summer. We will talk about the types of clothes we wear and the different weather we might experience.
In addition to this, we will also be looking at the season of Summer, getting ready for Sports morning and celebrating The Queen’s Jubilee!
As well as our class PE lesson, we will have a weekly PE session with our outside PE specialist.
"We like exploring and playing in our outside classroom."
Work at home: All children will be expected to read each night for at least 5-10 minutes (word cards and or reading book). Parents to write a brief note in the reading diary.
"We have our own designated Outdoor Learning space, where we like to have fun and extend our learning".
We have lots of fun in Reception!
We had a 'beary' busy and exciting time when we learnt about different types of bears, where they come from and what they like to eat. We looked closely at famous bears like Paddington Bear and in our role play we retold the traditional story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We had lots of fun making porridge, marmalade sandwiches, bear toast and bear biscuits! The best bit was when we got to eat everything!!
