Hello and welcome to our class
Our learning is cross curricular and is linked to our termly topic.
Our topic for the Autumn Term 2018 is...
During the term we will be finding out about different body parts and the ways in which we use them. We will learn all about our five senses and use them to explore the world around us, including the different changes which happen throughout the year (Autumn/Winter). Some of the stories we will look at are... My Mum and Dad Make Me Laugh, Funnybones, We're all Wonders, Owl Babies. We will also look at a range of non-fiction texts to support our learning. Later in the term we will look at different celebrations, including Bonfire Night and Christmas and we will spend time preparing for our Christmas production with Year 1 and Year 2. Our role play area will be a home corner, followed by Santa's Workshop.
As well as our class PE lesson, we will have a weekly PE session with Mr Robertson (an outside PE specialist) We will be learning how to undress and dress ourselves independently, follow instructions, stop and start on a given signal and keep ourselves safe during different types of exercise.
"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 explore the great outdoors"
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!!
