Hello and welcome to our class
Our learning is cross curricular and is linked to our termly topic.
Our topic for the Spring Term 2019 is...
During the term we will be finding out about the different varieties of animals in our world. We will identify common animals and sort them into groups (amphibians, reptiles, mammals, fish, birds and insects). We will also look at the different changes which happen in our local environment throughout the Winter/Spring). Some of the stories we will look at are... Dear Zoo and Lost and Found. We will also look at a range of non-fiction texts to support our learning. Throughout the term we will look at different celebrations, including Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and Easter. Our role play area will be a Vets and we will also have a Pet Shop.
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 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!!
