This Term's Topics
Animals and their Babies Spring Celebrations
A big welcome to all our Reception children. During this year we will become independent learners allowing us to access learning through a range of areas such as the role play, construction and baking. Children will have access to the outdoors and many opportunities to develop life-long skills through play, carpet and snack time. Our topics this year will be developed with the children. This gives the children owner ship over their learning. Areas in the classroom will be enhanced to reflect our learning.
Each day will start with phonics which will support our reading and writing skills. Children will also take part in daily numeracy and literacy activities. Over the week children will also take part in PE, Philosophy for Children as well as weekly visits to the library to develop our life long learning skills.
Our PE lessons will be every Wednesday morning. Children are to come to school Dressed in their PE kit every Wednesday.
