Reception (EYFS)

This half term in Reception our topic is:

I am special, I am ME!


This half term in reception we are looking at the topic 'I am special, I am me' where we will be exploring ourselves, our families and the world around us. We will use the 'core books' All are welcome, Dogger and The three little pigs. We will be exploring what we look like, where ourselves and our families may come from around the world and where we live. We will be exploring things from the past through books, and we will be building our own houses and talking about who lives in our family. As part of one of our prime areas of PSED, we will be exploring the story The colour monster. We will use this book to help us identify our feelings and use a self-check in every morning to acknowledge how we are feeling. 
In our independent learning time, we will be exploring all of our 17 areas. The children will be able to create their own numberblocks and match them to the numerals, they will be working on writing their names independently and they will be retelling stories using puppets and pictures. They will use cookbooks to support them with making food in our dough area and they will use their imagination to role play in the home corner. We will be exploring the weather outside in our outdoor area and we will be using the bikes to support us with our gross motor control.
