Welcome to Reception!
Our Topic for Term 4 is...
Through this topic we will be using the 'Space' books as one of our focuses. We will be thinking about what space is and what is 'out there'. Throughout the topic we will look at; our solar system, famous space explorers, transportation into and in space, and compare the Moon and the Earth. We will also be looking at a variety of celebrations from around the UK and the world.
See below for our topic web, where you will be able to see in more detail the focus of our learning, and also for our 'Knowledge Organiser' which gives some fun facts and curiosity questions to chat about at home.
We know that it is going to be a super spacey term!
The Reception Team
Dates for your diary:
Thursday 7th March- World Book Day
Tuesday 12th March- Parent's Evening
Thursday 14th March- Parent's Evening
Logistics including; Winter outer wear, wellies and water bottles (and provided snacks!)
Water bottles, wet/warm coats and hats/gloves: Please can you ensure that your child comes to school in an appropriate coat (especially as we do go outside most days even when it is wet/cold or wet and cold in order to get the most from our space and provision). We are still encouraging the children to drink as much as possible (the more you drink, the more you think!) so thank you for your continued support with sending in named bottles.
Wellies: We encourage children to use our outdoor provision to support their learning as much as possible in all weathers, therefore, as we move into autumn please provide labelled wellies to stay in school. Please speak to the team if you have any concerns surrounding this.
Our P.E/ Outdoor learning days: PE for both classes will be on Mondays and Outdoor learning will be on Wednesdays. Children should come dressed in PE clothes on Mondays. On Wednesday afternoons, Outdoor learning will be based in the forest area or pond area and children should come dressed in comfortable clothes, including waterproofs (depending on weather conditions). Please bring a pair of wellies to be kept in school and if you would like to keep waterproof clothing for Outdoor learning in school, these can be kept in a bag on your child's peg.
Snacks: the children are provided with daily fruit but if you wish to send them in with a fruit snack then you are welcome to.
