Learning this term
Autumn Term 1 2020: Superheroes
Our topic this term was ‘Superheroes'. We began our term welcoming our new children and families into Reception and helping them to settle into their new environment. Together we established our class rules and routines and developed relationships with both the adults and the children.
Our topic began with a focus on our family where we shared photos and discussed who is in our family. We learnt the different names for family members and thought about how our families are similar and different. We learnt how we have changed since being a baby and looked ahead to the future and what job we may want to do when we are older.
We then explored superheroes and learnt about our real life superheroes. We learnt about doctors, nurses and dentists and how they help us to look after ourselves. We learnt how we can take care of our bodies and explored what contributes to a healthy lifestyle. We then learnt about fire fighters and police and what role they have in looking after us. We explored how we can keep safe when out and about.
Autumn Term 2 2020: Celebrations
We continued our learning from Term 1 and moved on to the different celebrations such as Bonfire night, Christmas etc. Additionally, we learnt about seasonal change and what happens to animals as we get closer to Winter.
