Learning in Reception

Our approach to learning in Reception classes, details of current projects and suggestions on how you can get more involved at home.

Our latest topic is ‘Chinese New Year!’ (Monday 11th February to Friday 15th February 2019)
This topic will further develop the children’s understanding of the world.  We will be comparing where we live to different parts of the      world.  The children will begin to talk about comparisons in food, language, music and dance.
Highlights include:
  • Learning about the culture of China
  • Making our own dragon dance
  • Celebrating Chinese New Year
  • Learning different languages
  • Tasting Chinese food
During our ‘Chinese New Year!’ topic we tasted different foods and opened fortune cookies!
 
Pictures from our recent ‘Helpful Heroes’ topic, we held a parent’s workshop where we made emergency vehicles from junk modelling and had visits from the Fire Service, Police, Ambulance Service and Mountain Rescue Service.
