Hello and welcome to our class
Our learning is cross curricular and is linked to our termly topics.
Our topics for the Autumn Term 2019 are...
'Towers, Turrets and Dungeons'
During the first few weeks we will be finding out about our own bodies and our senses. We will be exploring our senses and how we use them to find out about the world around us.
During the rest of the term we will be learning about castles, finding out about what they are and why they were built.
Some of the stories we will look at are... Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, The Princess and the Dragon, Room on the Broom and Zog We will also look at a range of non-fiction texts and poetry to support our learning.
We will observe the different changes which happen in our local environment throughout the Autumn as well as learning about the different festivals and celebrations which happen at this time (Harvest, Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas). We will also be preparing to perform in our Christmas production.
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 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!!
