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.
Our topic this term has been Spring. We have read Jack and the Beanstalk and learned all about planting and growing. We even planted our own beanstalks! We have also been reading The Little Red Hen which has involved the children learning about farms and other plants.
World Book Day
The children all looked fabulous in their World Book Day costumes! They enjoyed discussing their favourite books and the characters.
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. This term, we have been focusing on plants and growing. The children have been on a hunt for signs of Spring!
