This half term, children will learn about Chinese New Year and why we celebrate Valentine’s Day. We will learn about Spring and will go on a Spring Walk around the school grounds. This will link to learning about Easter.
We will continue to plan activities that the children show interest in. The children have shown a lot of interest in Polar animals and the cold weather. We are going to base our next topic around Polar Regions, looking at both North and South Pole, focusing on teh animals we find there and what the weather is like. Children will be involved in lots of learning around this topic and we will make the most of the cold weather!
We will also be developing our skills in learning to read and write through Read, Write, Inc and our literacy lessons. We will learn about numbers using Numberblocks, which we love! As well as learning to compare numbers within 10, and and subtract numbers and learn about 2D and 2D shapes.
This first half term our topic is “All about me”. We will be learning all about ourselves as well as learning new school routines, getting to know each other and meeting lots of new friends. It will be a fun and exciting half term in Reception Class as new friendships form and new adventures begin.
