Hello and welcome to our class
Our learning is cross curricular and is linked to our termly topics.
Our topics for the Autumn Term 2020 are...
For the first few weeks we will spend time getting to know each other, making new friends, exploring our new classroom and learning rules and routines for our school environment.
We will then move on to look at Marvellous Me where we will be focusing on ourselves and our families. We will explore our senses, our body parts and our emotions and look at similarities and differences between us.
Following on from this we will look at Our Community where we will look at farming and where our food comes from and we will also think about farm animals and their babies.
Some of the stories we will look at are... The Enormous Turnip, Farmer Duck, Oliver's Vegetables and The Little Red Hen. 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, Bonfire night, Halloween, Remembrance day, Diwali, 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!!
