Autumn Term 2019-2020

Welcome to Reception!

The children have all settled in brilliantly and are fully immersed in their learning.

So far we have talked about the following topics:

All About Me; learning all about ourselves and our new classmates.

Visited Harold in the Life Education Van.

Celebrated Birthdays; learning when our birthdays are, making birthday cards, counting to 5 and much, much more.

We have been busy but have had lots of fun!

Autumn Term 2

So far we have been learning about…

The Autumn season and how our world changes,

Anti-bullying and kindness,

Traditional tale; Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Kindness Week

This was a special week for learning all about being kind and looking after each other.

Special people to us were invited to school to take part in a workshop. Together we listened to the Ugly Duckling story, talking about how we should treat everyone with kindness regardless of what they look like. We decided we should treat people how we want to be treated.

After, the children and their grown ups made ducklings, swans and chicks.

Spring Term

This term the children have had lots of fun but have been busy learning too.

Our favourite topic has been We’re Going on a Bear Hunt! We have explored our outside environment searching for bears, have built caves using different materials, made binoculars so we can see any bears in the distance, learned about bears and their habitats and have been on a bear hunt in our school.

We had a special visitor who came to tell us all about keeping safe and speaking out. Michelle works for the NSPCC charity and she explained the importance of keeping ourselves safe. Along with their mascot, Buddy, we learned how to speak to trusted adults about our worries.

Every Wednesday is our Forest School morning and we alternate each week. Here are a few pictures of the things we have been doing with our teacher Mrs Stiles.

Here are our learning overviews:
