Summer Term 2017 - Buckets and Spades
Welcome to the final half term of Reception class. We have had a super start to this half term learning all about recycling and have taken part in our first Sports Day! Please see more details of our topic at the bottom of the page!
Well done to the Yellow Team for winning Sports Day and the following children for winning our Class Race!
Spring 2 - Growing Goodness
We began this topic with super input from home - making gorgeous timelines of our lives! The children loved sharing them with the class and we loved seeing how much they have changed over the last 4 or 5 years! They are on display in our coat area and look fantastic. After thinking about how we grow, we are thinking about how vegetables, fruits and plants grow. We are taking a trip to Tesco for their 'Farm to Fork experience' to learn more about where our food comes from. We are going to grow our own plants, taste different fruits and vegetables and end this topic with a big picnic outside with Year 1 and Year 2!
Spring 1 - Rocket into Space
We are beginning our new topic by transforming our classroom and role play area into a wonderful 'Space' zone! We are going to focus on the stories of Whatever Next and Aliens love Underpants, alongside reading many other fiction and non-fiction books about Space. We are lucky that we have Miss Sinnott teaching us P.E and she has planned a fantastic unit of Dance all about space! Please look to the bottom of this page for a detailed Curriculum map of everything we are covering in 'Rocket into Space' and check back for photos being added!
Autumn 2 - 'Let's Celebrate' and Winter
We have continued to think about the seasons and have spent time noticing the changes outside, as the weather gets colder and the trees become bare! As part of our topic this half term we have learned about the celebrations of Diwali and Bonfire Night. We have thought about our own celebrations and special events in our lives, many of us brought in items and photos from home to share with the class! The children have been so confident to speak in front of the class about Weddings, Birthdays and Christenings they have been involved in.
Autumn 1 - Settling in, 'All creatures great and small' and Autumn
Reception Class settled in really well , after two weeks being part-time all of the children were allocated a Y6 buddy who supports them at lunchtimes. This nurturing system works so well and the children adore their buddies! Well done Y6!
We had a fantastic trip to Knowsley Safari Park, as part of our animals topic, and have also visited Yarrow Valley Park (Birkacre) for a closer look at the seasonal changes from Summer to Autumn!
