Reception (EYFS)

This half term in Reception our topic is:

On The Farm


This half term in reception we are looking at the topic 'On the farm' where we will be exploring a farm enviornment, animals and life-cycles. We will even be going on a school trip to visit a farm! We will start our first week with our story Farmer Duck. The children will explore different animals, what jobs happen on a farm and where different animals lives. In the second and third week we will be exploring the stories 'What the ladybird heard' and 'The little red hen'. The children will have the chance to retell and write their own stories using a storymap, they will be exploring what food we can get from animals and on the farm and we will be making our own bread.
In our independent learning time, we will be exploring all of our 17 areas. The children will be able to use the maths area to count beyond 20, explore capacity in the water area, they will be working on writing sentences 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 and den making to support us with our gross motor control.
