Spring Term 2016

Welcome back Reception.


In Reception, we have some great topics this Spring Term. We are going to be using our ‘thinking and learning tree’ to share ideas and document how our learning grows. Here are our topics.


Who are the famous characters in our books?

This half term, we will be exploring the wonderful world of fiction. We will be focusing on "The Jolly Postman" and looking at the different storytale characters he meets on his round - I'm sure we will be able to spot some famous and memorable characters, both good and bad!


How can we help Cinderella have a ball?

Next half term, the children will be the set the challenge of making Cinderella’s life a little more enjoyable by planning a ball...let’s see what great party planners they all are!


Twinkle, twinkle, little star. How I wonder what you are.

The children will also be learning about space. They will be finding out about where stars go during the day and looking at the different constellations they make.


There will be a few changes to look forward to this term as our Early Years Unit will look a little different. Every morning when we come in, we will start our day with Dough Disco.  This will warm our hands and finger muscles up and develop our fine motor skills which will help to prepare us for our daily tasks.


We are all very excited!
