Reception 2018 - 2019
Miss Pankhurst/Miss Pearson
We have a very exciting term ahead of us in reception and now that we have fully settled into school we are ready to continue our learning with our friends.
In the Early Years our learning takes place outside as well as inside, regardless of the weather and with the cold weather upon us, we are wrapping ourselves up warm to investigate its effects – freezing, melting and frost. We are engaging in many wintry activities and plan to help the RSPB in their Big Garden Birdwatch at the end of January.
We will find out about the customs and traditions of the Chinese New Year of the pig, joining in with some of their celebratory activities.
At the end of this half term we will join in with the rest of school during ‘Arts Week’ where the theme will be ‘Global Warriors’. We will spend our time becoming involved in activities to help the children become aware of the impact our actions are having on the natural world, looking at how we can reduce, re-use and recycle items, as well as how we can minimise food waste.
Our weekly activities are planned by following the interests of the children and so we are very flexible in the way we work. Each week may see us in a new direction. Of course Easter is at the end of the term so we will no doubt be indulging in some Easter based activities before we enjoy our well-earned holiday.
