Welcome to Reception class!
Terms 3 and 4
It is term 4 and we are enjoying our 'come outside' topic. We are leaning about how plants grow. We have been learning the names of the parts of a plant and made a collage picture with labels too! We have enjoyed growing our own bean plants and observing them changing over time.
We have been reading 'Jasper's Beanstalk' by Nick Butterworth. We have acted the story out and performed a song about the story. We have also read 'Jack and the beanstalk' too! It was fun to dress up on 2nd March for World Book Day.
In term 3 our topic was 'Winter Wonderland'. We had fun learning about the Polar regions of the world and looked at the differences between these areas and where we live in Kent.
We set up a Polar explorer's camp in our class! We looked out for all the wild animals that might pass by. We learned lots of facts about polar bears and penguins and made a class book. We mixed cold colours and painted Polar landscapes. We also made a huddle of penguins from clay!
On Internet Safety day, we learned about Smartie the Penguin and how to be safe online. We learned a rhyme: Before you tap and click, you need to stop and think and tell someone.
Terms 1 and 2
Settling in and making friends!
The children have enjoyed getting to know our whole school family this term.
Our topic this term is ‘Winter wonderland.’ This will be followed by ‘Come outside.’ Please see the plans on our class newsletter for more details. This term we will provide many creative and investigative opportunities for the children to challenge the children and explore new ideas. We will be investigating freezing and melting, exploring materials, locating the polar regions on the globe and maps then learning about life in these cold climates. Our ‘Come outside’ topic will be focusing on the changing seasons and signs of spring. We will be planting and going on a Spring walk to observe any sign of the seasons changing.
