The topic for our Reception children this term is ‘Helping Hands’. Our role play areas will focus on people who help us in our society including teachers, doctors or vets. As part of our learning in geography we will be thinking about the names of the different places where ’people who help us’ work. Our small world areas and our literacy for the beginning of term will be centred around superheroes. This popular theme includes texts about 'Super Daisy', 'Supertato' and 'Eliot Midnight Superhero'. In art we will be designing and making superhero vehicles and dens. As part of our history work we will be learning about school and teachers in the past and looking at different artefacts from schools long ago. 

In Science, Reception will be thinking about growth and changes. We will continue to watch our tadpoles change into frogs and will also be thinking about how humans grow and change. As part of our science and DT we will be thinking about the importance of healthy eating and exercise. In our water trays we will be making predictions about materials before testing to see if they will sink or float. 

Our author in focus for this term is Judith Kerr and we are looking forward to following the adventures of Mog the cat. 


After half term our topic will be called ‘Who lives in the Wild Garden?’ The children’s learning will centre around minibeasts and fairies.  They will be using non-fiction books to find out facts and information about minibeasts particularly snails. We will also be writing our own non-fiction texts about beans and sunflowers. Our Author in Focus is Eric Carle and we are looking forward to reading about all the minibeasts in his stories. 

We will be taking lots of opportunities for outdoor learning in the Wild Garden as we build fairy homes, fairy doors and create minibeast sculptures. The children will also be reading ‘The King of Tiny Things’ and thinking about looking after the environment and the creatures in it. We always enjoy 'bug hunting' around our Wild Garden and looking closely at the similarities and differences of the minibeasts that are found. 

In Science this term Reception will also be exploring shadows at different times of the day as well as  continuing to observe the weather and seasonal changes in our environment. 

Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh we will be creating our own sunflower pictures in his style.
