What's happening this year?

Below is a short overview of what will happen each term in Reception this year. 

Autumn Topic

We will spend much of the first term settling into the nursery, making new friends, getting to know our adults that look after us and learning routines. We will have plenty of time to find out and explore what we can play and learn with in the nursery before we begin focusing on our first topic which will be Autumn. We will begin by discussing the weather around us and noticing the colours of the changing trees. We spend lots of time outside on welly walks picking up autumn treasures to create lovely artwork in our classroom. Throughout the term we will be exploring Bonfire and Fireworks Night, Diwali, Halloween and Remembrance Day.

Christmas Topic

During our Christmas topic we fully immerse ourselves in the magic and wonder of the advent season. We take part in a EYFS nativity, make decorations, read the Christmas Story, decorate our own Christmas tree and even have a visitor from someone very special. Ho Ho Ho...

Winter Topic

Throughout our Winter topic we will explore New Year, Chinese New Year, Valentines Day and Pancake Day! We will continue our outside learning with Mr Wilson at Forest School each week.

Spring Topic

During this topic we start to plant some seeds in our garden and look for the changes this season brings as it springs into life. As part of this topic we will be inviting our grown ups in for a 'Mother's Day' celebration.  We celebrate Easter and even get to have our very own egg hunt around school. We learn about why Easter is important to us and we also get to cook some Easter biscuits for our grown ups.  

Summer Topic  

In our 'Summer' topic we will explore different cultures and discuss summer holiday destinations and different types of transport. We will enjoy the warmer weather - harvest vegetables we have grown and explore our class paddling pools. We will also spend some time in our new classrooms ready for September!
