Spring collection

EYFS In Reception we follow the EYFS, a copy of which is on our website. There are 17 areas of learning made up of 3 specific areas: Personal Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication & Language and 4 prime areas: Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World, Expressive Arts and Design. The activities in Reception are designed to enable children to develop across all of these areas of learning. Children will become independent learners and make choices about their activities, balanced with an appropriate range of adult-led learning. Children will have free access to both the inside, outdoor and all-weather areas. ICT In Reception ICT includes a wide range of technology e.g. using moving toys, remote controls, walkie-talkies, telephones, CD players, using knobs and pulleys as well as computers, tablets and iPads. Reception children will have an opportunity to use computers throughout the term.


Land of make believe Our over arching theme is Land of Make Believe, Spring 1 will be –Monsters! And Spring 2 will be -Fairytales and Forests. These topics will encourage the children to develop their imagination, creativity and individuality. They will be designing and making their own Monsters! Listening to lots of stories, which will enable them to develop a basic understanding of how stories are structured and talk about the main characters and settings. There will be lots of opportunities for role play, dressing up, going on a Monster hunt, re telling familiar stories, making up their own stories… We will be having a Movie day watching Monsters Inc and we will visit Warley Woods to look for fairy doors! In Spring 2, Reception will be making their own fairy garden. Anybody who would like to get involved in this please let Mrs Bhatoe know!!!
