Welcome to Reception 2018 – 19! During the year you can see our amazing learning by visiting our webpage. These are our topics for the year. These might change during the year depending on the children’s interests. Each topic is always linked to a high quality text and we read widely around our topic. We start each 3 week topic by finding out what the children already know about it. Then we do an immersion activity (an exciting event linked to the learning e.g. a trip, a visitor, something exciting in class.) After that we involve the children in choosing what they would like in each area of the classroom to explore each topic so that the learning is child led wherever possible.
Miller's Ark Living Nativity
Something really exciting happened in Reception and Nursery on Wednesday! We were visited by Miller's Ark Living Nativity. We were met by the 'Inn-keeper' who showed us around the stable where Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus took shelter. He told us the story of how the little family came to be in his stable and then introduced us to all the animals. We met two donkeys, two pigs and lots of sheep and goats. We really enjoyed being able to get really close and give them lots of strokes. It was fantastic and we are now really in the mood for creating our own Nativity for all our grown ups to come and see in a few weeks time!
In reception we use RWI (Read Write Inc) to teach phonics. It is a fantastic way to teach children to read and write. For more information on RWI, please see the link below.
