What we will be learning this term

This term we will be covering a few topics in Reception, as well as continuing our journey of phonics and having a large focus on reading.

We will be starting the term by learning all about superheroes and everyday superheroes such as police and doctors. We will be engaging in lots of role play and taking part in fun activities around the topic. We may even have some special visitors to show us how it’s done!

After half-term, we will then begin our Growing topic. We will be reading ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, looking at what plants need to grow, and be putting our green thumbs to the test by growing our own plants. We will also be investigating how we grow and change through the years.

I have been part of the Grinling Gibbons community since December 2018, I really love coming into school each day as it has such a caring and enthusiastic atmosphere, it feels like we are all one big family. I am the Reception teacher within the school, which I am ecstatic about! I love the EYFS curriculum and how inquisitive and spontaneous the children can be each day.

Every day you can see so much change and development in each child and for me it is such an amazing experience and I am honoured to be a part of it. Reception is the beginning of school for most children and gives them the foundations to build on as the go up the school. Giving the children these basic skills and making sure they have fun while doing it is my key aim.

I also take Art club every week, which is lots of fun. The children get to showcase their creative skills and also learn some new artistic techniques. We create a wide range of pieces during the sessions.
