Hello and welcome to our class
Our learning is cross curricular and is linked to our termly topics.
Our topics for the Autumn Term 2021 are...
'Towers, Turrets and Dungeons'
For the first half of the autumn term our topic will be 'Marvellous Me'.
Our focus initially will be on starting school, settling into classroom life, making new friends and learning new rules and routines within the our school environment. We will then will start to think about ourselves and our families where we will explore our different body parts and look at the senses. Some of the stories we will look at are... I'm Special, I'm Me, Elmer.
For the second half of the term our topic will be 'Towers, Turrets and Dungeons'. We will look at parts of a castle, different types of castles and their uses. Some of the stories we will look at are... The Princess and The Pea, Zog.
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 autumn, talking about the types of clothes we wear and the different weather we might experience.
We will also look at different celebrations throughout the term including harvest, halloween, bonfire night, diwali, Remembrance Sunday and Christmas.
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!!
