Welcome to Class R1

The Reception class is the final year of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We follow the EYFS curriculum through Early Years Outcomes (age related phases) towards the Early Learning Goals. There are 7 areas of learning: Communication and Langague, Physical Development, Personall, Social and Emotional Devlopment, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design.

Autumn 1

 Our first topic will be BEARS - we will be using different stories as starting point for a range of cross -curricular tasks. We will retell the stories of 'The Three Bears' and 'The Bear Hunt'. We will order bowls and spoons by size and make repeating patterns using compare bears. We will make maps for the Bear Hunt story and set up a Bear Hunt story walk. We will find information out about different bears and bring in a picture of our own bear. (A text will go out when this is needed)

Planning will be put on to our class page on the web site.  P.E  will be on Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon.

PPA - Miss Sandison will cover the class on Friday afternoons

Our next topic will be about ANIMALS. The chidlren showed a goood level of knowledge about bears and so to extend their knowledge further we will focus on different types of animals - farm,zoo and pets. We will use a range of story books as well as using non-fiction texts and computers to find out information. We will sort and describe animals by where they live and if they are wild/tame. We will talk about similaritiesand differences and develop vocabulary linked to animal young.
