Reception

Spring Term

As the children come back to school in January, they will be learning about the seasonal changes that will be taking place.  The children will be thinking about the changes in weather, discussing the types of clothes they need to wear in the winter and how to keep warm and safe in the cold weather.  To help them in their learning the children will be looking at a wonderful winter story by Julia Donaldson called Stick Man and reading various other stories about animals in the winter.  They will also be taking part in some exciting experiments using ice.

The children will then move onto a brand new topic of Transport.  This is an area in which the staff found many of the children showed a particular interest in during the last half term, many of them choosing to play with the small world vehicles or make their own out of construction pieces.  We will be looking at various types of transport, including emergency services vehicles and talking about the various situations we would use these types of transport in.

In R.E. the children will be getting to know a little bit more about the life of Jesus.  They will learn that Jesus has a great love for every one of them, begin to understand this love and think of ways in which they can show love to others.  They will also be learning all about the miracles that Jesus performed.
