Learning in Reception
Autumn Term 2019: All About Me / Celebrations
Our topic this term is ‘All about me and Celebrations’. We begin our term welcoming our new children and families into Reception and helping them to settle into their new environment. Together we establish our class rules and routines and develop relationships with both the adults and the children.
Our topic begins with a focus on our family where we will be sharing photos and discussing who is in our family. We will be learning the different names for family members and will link this to stories about families. We will then focus on ourselves thinking about how we are similar and different to our friends and what makes us unique. We will be learning how we have changed since being a baby and look ahead to the future and what job we may want to do when we are older. Next, we will be learning about our body and developing our vocabulary of the terms used to describe the various parts. We will also be learning about our senses and how we can keep ourselves healthy and safe. We hope to have some visitors to our class to help with our learning such as doctors, nurses, health visitors, police and fire fighters. We will be linking our learning to the different celebrations such as Harvest, Sukkot, Diwali, Bonfire night, Christmas etc. Additionally, we will be learning about seasonal change and what happens to animals as we get closer to Winter.
