Welcome to Reception and Year 1!
There are 25 of us in Reception and Year 1, we are known as the Chicks and Flamingos. Our teachers are Miss Short and Mrs Brotherton. Our Learning Support Assistants are Miss Kempson and Mrs Tarver.
This term our topic is ‘Dinosaurs’. We will leaning all about (and how to pronounce!) lots of different dinosaurs. The children will discover the history behind dinosaurs and will also be thinking about the past in relation to timelines. We will create our own personal timeline and then think about how times have changed since dinosaurs roamed the earth. To help us learn about dinosaurs the children have asked the class fairy for a real one… let’s hope it appears!
This term our topic is 'Bears'. We will start looking at bears (the animal) and then move onto teddy bears. We will be doing all sorts of exciting things including going on our very own bear hunt, having a teddy bears picnic and then pet day. In geography we are going to be looking at comparing and contrasting hot and cold localities. We will be linking this to our topic by discussing the different climates that bears live in.
This term our topic is 'The Circus'. We are going to be learning about all the different types of animals and performers in the circus with a particular focus on that fact that it is okay to be different. In History we are going to be thinking about significant events and people throughout time. In Geography we are going to be using maps, globes and atlases to identify where we live. As we move closer to Christmas we will be writing letters to Santa, making Christmas crafts and putting in lots of practice for the Christmas production!
This term our topic is Marvellous Me/ Houses and Homes. We will be learning all about ourselves and getting to know our new friends. We will then be thinking about where we live, how houses are built and what type of homes people from around the world live in. We are going to be designing our dream home and then building it! Photos of the wonderful activities we are doing will be uploaded to this page.
