Our Classroom

Term 5 - Summer 1

Below is an outline of what we will be learning about over the term. The EYFS curriculum is a play-based curriculum where children learn through their own interests. As we observe the different things the reception children are interested in, we will plan opportunities within the classroom to enable them to explore their interests and develop them further through the 7 areas of learning. This means that the learning detailed below is just a starting point, there will be parts of this that they chose to take part in and parts that they do not, and they will engage in a wealth of additional activities as opportunities arise. You will be able to see some of the exciting additional learning that the receptions have engaged in through the weekly “Learning Snapshots” on Tapestry.

Amazing Animals

We are excited to be moving on to a new topic, Amazing Animals. To start with we will be exploring the animals in our local area, moving onto night and day animals and then taking a closer look at animal patterns. We will enjoy reading a range of books to support our topic such as Leaf, Monkey Puzzle, The Emperors Egg and The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We will also be taking a geographical approach through observing different animals that can be found around the world. We will cover “Understanding the world” through exploring a variety of animals including their features, habitats and diets. Our role play area will be transformed into a “Vets” allowing the children the opportunity to role play caring for animals.


Purple Mash

A reminder that we have joined the Purple Mash community for teaching and learning computing and digital literacy. The children all have their own logins to access the games , activites and programs on the website, and they will be able to explain to you how it all works. If they have forgotten their login, we have a record of them and will be able to provide them to you! Click the picture to go to the login page.
