Presentation for 2022 Reception Intake Prospective Parents/Carers

AUTUMN TERM

Our topics this term are 'Marvellous Me' and 'Weather'.

We are getting to know ourselves and each other. Here are some photos of us settling into school. 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 We have been looking at our bodies and our faces and finding where everything goes. 

 

             

   

 

 

 

We have been learning about our Christian values at St Mary’s. This term the focus is ‘fellowship’. We have been playing some games to help us learn about fellowship.

  

  

 

 We are learning the story Owl Babies. Using the puppets and our story map to retell the story is lots of fun. 

     

                                            

 This term we celebrated Harvest. Here is the display our school made for the Church window. Our class made the scarecrow pictures.

 

We have been learning about Diwali, the festival of light. We have been making our own Diya lamps. 

  

        

 

SPRING TERM

Our topics this term are 'Toys and Forces' and 'People who help us'.

We have made some rocket mice to show a push and a pull force and we have been playing with some wooden toys to see if we need to use a push or a pull.

This term we have also been learning about Chinese New Year. We have made some masks, money wallets and turned ourselves into dragons. We have also been able to taste some Chinese food which was so much fun! 

           

           

 

SUMMER TERM

 Our topics are 'Flowers, shrubs and grubs' and 'Mini-beasts'. 

We have been reading the story Jack and the Beanstalk. Jack wrote us a letter asking for our help and we have been working hard looking out for the giant. We have made some traps, walked on stilts like a giant and sent some messages back to Jack. 

  

 

 

To our surprise the giant then visited our classroom and caused a real mess!!! So we had to look for clues, make some trap designs and write letters to warn Jack.
