Welcome to Reception!
Hello! Welcome to Reception Class. We are super busy this term with our learning which has been focused around the theme of Traditional Tales and Fairy Tales. The children have been involved in a range of activities to enhance their learning in the 7 areas of the EYFS curriculum: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Communication and Language; Physical Development; Literacy; Maths; Understanding the World; Expressive Arts and Design.
During the Autumn Term, our topic was 'dinosaurs'. This topic enabled the children to explore 'dinosaurs' in more detail and has proven to be a fantastic motivator for their early writing and number development. We also looked at different celebrations such as Diwali, Bonfire Night and Halloween. We also learned about Christmas through the practice of our Christmas Play and through a range of activities in the class.
The children enjoy learning in the outside areas too. They are given the opportunity to explore the environment, such as the Wildlife Area, where 'Wellie Wednesdays' take place. Here, they can express themselves in a range of ways and it provides a great opportunity for the children to expand their imagination and exploration skills needed to be competent learners.
