Big Idea – Celebrating ‘People that help us’.

The children this year love roleplaying Police officers and Doctors. We have decided to finish our Reception year with a big Celebration of all the People that help us in our community.

We are looking forward to welcoming some visitors into school to help spark the excitement.

We will keep grown ups informed through Tapestry.

This half term we will be looking at animals and plants and how they grow. We will be getting muddy fingers in the garden and getting our own caterpillar pets in the classroom. The children with develop curiosity through observations, stories and non-fiction texts. This is my favourite term because not only do we see nature blooming, but we see our little ones blooming too. They have made so much progress already but this half term they seem to much more mature and resilient in their learning.

Keep an eye out on Tapestry for our learning adventure.

Please remember sun hats and water bottles daily. Your child can bring suncream to school in a named bottle. Your child must only apply their own cream, and not share cream with other children. This is due to allergies. We will share the importance of this with the children too.

Thank you.

Ms Taylor, Mrs Meynell and the Reception team.

The focus will be to learn about our world, and why it is special to us. We will think about how we look after things that are special to us and the importance of looking after our world.

Big Idea – Creating

Image result for creating

This half term we are going to be learning about what it means it create. We are going to look at various creators and then become creators ourselves. We are going to link this to our current interest: Polar regions. I would like to inspire the children to create their own texture book based on a Polar Region animal. It would be lovely to arrange a story time with younger family members where the children could share their texture book. We will send an invitation to the story time. I will aim for 2:45 on Friday 9th February.
