Hello and welcome to our class
Our learning is cross curricular and is linked to our termly topic.
Our topic for the Summer Term 2019 is...
During the term we will be finding out about how water is a...colourless, transparent, odourless, liquid which forms the seas, lakes, rivers and rain. We will identify the different ways in which water is used and how important a resource water is. We will complete some activities using water; including floating and sinking and a walking water experiment!
Some of the stories we will look at are... The Rainbow Fish, Sharing a Shell and A Week of Pirate Tales. We will also look at a range of non-fiction texts to support our learning.
We will also observe the different changes which happen in our local environment throughout the Summer.
As well as our class PE lesson, we will have a weekly PE session with our outside PE specialist. We will be encouraged to follow instructions, stop and start on a given signal and keep ourselves safe during different types of exercise as well as developing our independence when undressing, dressing and organising our own belongings. We will also be preparing for our whole school sports morning.
"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!!
