In the Reception year we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum. it is split in to the following areas of learning:-
Autumn Term 2018
Our main focus during the first half term is to support the children as they make the transition from pre-school setting to school. Our Reception classes are an exciting environment where children are able to take part in creative, imaginative, physical and investigative activities.
In literacy sessions we will encourage the development of language skills. This will involve many listening activities and opportunities to speak with increasing confidence in front of others. Once all of the children are in school full time we will introduce the Jolly Phonics scheme which teaches children their letters and sounds for reading and writing.
In Maths we will concentrate on recognising and ordering numbers and counting reliably. We will introduce addition and subtraction, and the children will also learn to name various flat and solid shapes and describe them using everyday language.
This term we will be celebrating several special days from varying cultures and traditions, including Diwali, Remembrance Day, Bonfire Night and, of course, Christmas! We will also be introducing the children to various forms of technology around the classroom, including the class computer and interactive whiteboard, laptops and programmable toys. We will also be starting 'forest school' and exploring the outside environment more.
From the very start of term we will encourage the children to express themselves creatively using a variety of media, for example painting, collage, music, song and dance. Specifically we will be creating Bonfire Night pictures, Diwali decorations and Christmas cards among others.
Information about the rest of the curriculum this term can be found in the Autumn Term Curriculum Letter below.
Spring Term 2019
This term we start a new topic which is all about 'Winter Woodlands' and in the second half of the Spring term our topic will be 'Heroes'. Spanning both topics we will be linking the concept of 'Power' into our learning.
In Literacy sessions we will be continuing to encourage the development of many speaking and listening skills. We will be listening to, learning and talking about different stories, as well as sequencing them and acting them out. Some of the texts we will explore are The Gruffalo, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, We're going on a Bear Hunt, Supertato and Emergency! We will continue the phonics scheme and begin to learn the 'digraphs' (double letter sounds) such as 'ch', 'sh' and 'th'.
In Maths this term, we will be learning about shapes, addition and subtraction. Place value (the ordering and recognition of numbers) will also remain as a focus throughout Maths.
We will be using our stories as a focus in supporting our understanding of the world. For example, the forest in the Gruffalo provides great opportunities to explore concepts such as light and dark, day and night; exploring trees and woodland animals. We will also be using our senses to see how the season of Winter changes the environment around us.We will also be looking at the festivities and traditions of Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day and Easter.
