Welcome to the Reception Classes!
Autumn Topic: The Naughty Bus
This autumn the children have been settling in and getting used to life at school. We introduced the children to the story of the Naughty Bus, taking the children on Millie, the Millennium Bus to take part in some role play. To inspire emerging writing and to explore our local community, we took bus journeys to some local landmarks (Cutty Sark, 02 & the Thames Barrier) in small groups, we had lots of parent volunteers and the children took lots of photos.
Spring 1 Topic: Space
During the spring term we will be exploring Space; designing our own space ships to take us to outer space, and learning about the planets in our solar system. The children will learn about what it is like to live in space and we will role play moon walking.
Spring 2 Topic: Pirates
Join us on a pirate adventure! We shall be reading lots of pirate tales and learning about a famous pirate called Blackbeard. We will be studying what pirates wear and make some resources to help us with our role play. We will design our own Desert Island and make some hardtack biscuits which pirates used to eat at sea.
Summer 1: Life in the Garden
During the summer term will be utilising the skills we have learned at Forest School to explore the outside areas to hunt for mini beasts, and learn about how to look after plants and what they need to grow.
