Welcome to Reception - Buttercup Class!
We are always happy to help, so if you have a question or query how big or small feel free to come and chat to one of us.
We are currently in Term 1 and our topic is Friends! Please have a look to see what we are up to each day in our current timetable.
In Reception we select topics to suit the children’s interests. Through finding out what the children are interested in we can tailor the curriculum accordingly. We follow the EYFS
Here is an overview of what is expected within the strands, it is a useful tool for understanding the profile:
This term our topic is 'Friends'. We will be settling into school life and being good friends to each other. We will look at and explore a range of friendship themed texts. We will learn new routines together and agree some rules for our learning and playing environments. Our learning will include recognising our own names and our friends names, having a go at mark making and writing our own names. We will begin our Letters and Sounds phonic journey, explore numerals 1-5 and what each numeral represents whilst engaging in some problem solving activities. We will observe the seasonal changes and explore our outdoor environment.
We don't have any trips lined up for Term 1 as we want to give the children time to settle into their new school routines.
We will be having weekly visits to a forest school settling later on in the school year. Further details will be sent home soon.
