Curriculum Map


Summer 1 2020

This half term was our first full term of Home Learning and look how well we did! We took part in a range of daily challenges from P.e to Music set by different teachers across the school. Our topic this half term was ‘Through the Woods’. We read one of our favourite stories ‘We are going on a Bear Hunt’ and even did some yoga while following the story. We made some exciting Bear Hunt Maps and went on our own Bear Hunt with our families and homemade binoculars! We have made Miss Milligan so proud how we have adapted so quickly to our learning at home. I wonder what next half term will bring? 

Spring 2 2020

As well as our fun topics, we have also been learning about germs and how important it is to wash our hands. We used green glitter to represent the germs and tried to clean our hands using just water - the germs would not come off! To clean your hands properly you must use soap! We even learnt a song to remind how important it is to wash your hands and how long we need to wash them for. 

World Book Day 2020

Spring 1 2020

This half term we have been looking at a range of Traditional Tales. We had a crime scene when we came into school one morning and there were a range of clues. We had two PCSO officers join us to try and gather some evidence and we decided that it must have been the Big Bad Wolf! Luckily we were informed by the police that he had been caught a few days later.

Autumn 2 2019

Reception had lots of fun setting up our classroom ready for Christmas. We decorated our Christmas Tree and had put tinsel around our room. Our writing area was converted into a Christmas post office and we wrote some letters to Santa! We had lots of fun exploring our Winter tuft tray too.

Autumn 1 2019

It was our first half term in Reception. We had a really fun time getting to know our new friends, teacher and classroom! We started to do some yoga in P.E and have gotten really good at it now.

Summer 2019

Reception have been working really hard this term on lots of different topics. We have had some beautiful weather and have used this opportunity to do lots of activities outside. We have really enjoyed our P.E sessions with Inspiring Infants and can’t wait to continue them after our break. We have had lots of fun this term!

Spring 2019

Autumn 2 2018

We have had a lovely half term in Reception. We learnt all about traditional tales and were able to pick our favourite at the end! We had lots of fun measuring the length of the Giants footprint from Jack and the Beanstalk, we built a castle in the sky for Jack to go to and we compared the size of the teddy bears from Goldilocks and the three bears. When we came in one morning we found a broken chair in our classroom. It was our challenge to look for clues to find out who broke the chair. We have worked very hard and are now looking forward to our relaxing Christmas holidays. See you in January!

Autumn 1 2018

It was our first half term in Reception and we were very busy getting to know our new teacher, new friends and new classroom.

In maths we were learning all about numbers 0-10. There were numbers all over our classroom and we loved searching through the sand to see what we could find. We sang number songs together and are now super and doing our doubling rhymes!

During our first half term we learnt all about the Harvest festival and why we celebrate it. We had a fruit and vegetable tasting session and tried lots of new things. Some things we loved but others we were not so sure about.

We played lots with our new friends both inside the classroom and on the playground. One of our favourite things to do is to play on our adventure playground were we have to go over, under and through different obstacles. We were all very brave and were not afraid to give it a go.

We have had a very busy first half term in reception and are looking forward to having lots more fun!
