Welcome to Reception
We have been learning about exciting things with Mrs Buxton and Mrs Appleton.
Topic: Ourselves/Human Body/Family and friends
Reception will be finding out about the Human Body, particularly exploring the Senses. We will find out about how to keep healthy and safe, the importance of exercise and hygiene and the Human Life Cycle. Children will also think about their family and friends and what these mean to them. We will think about how we change from a baby to an adult and the things they can do now. We read Funny bones stories. and write labels for body parts and family members.
Also this term we will be completing a Forest School block in the trees at the bottom of the field, when we will also be exploring our senses, taking photographs for an Exhibition, building dens, making things, tree climbing and having a camp fire.
Later in the term, we will find out about Harvest and Autumn ready for our Harvest Assembly and enjoy a spooky Halloween day and disco. We read the Enormous Turnip and spooky witch stories and write spells and potions and invitations.
After half term we think about celebrations and festivals and learn about Guy Fawkes and Bonfire night, Diwali and Christmas and the children all take part in a Christmas Performance.
