Reception children at Silver Springs will cover a new and exciting theme every half term that provides your child with the chance to experience rich and fulfilling learning experiences. These will be used to develop a wide range of skills and will cater for different learning styles. We also follow the children's interests therefore our themes are flexible to cater for this.
Please see below for more details about this half term's theme and our don't forget to read our curriculum map within the curriculum section!
Summer half term 1 2019
This half term, our theme is Taller and Stronger. Firstly, we are looking forward to our trip to Manchester Airport in our first week back where we will be learning all about the different airport roles such as pilots and cabin crew. We will also spend time watching the planes departing and arriving. We will then enjoy a picnic lunch back at school!
In our topic, we will be learning all about the life cycle of a butterfly. We will have caterpillars in our classroom where we can observe them as they grow and change into butterflies. We will be planting seeds and bulbs and will grow our very own sunflowers. Whose will grow the tallest? We will have fun mixing primary into secondary colours to create artwork in the style of Kandinsky. We will be focusing upon the stories The Hungry Caterpillar and Jasper's Beanstalk and will be sequencing and writing our own mini booklets and stories. Phew - what a busy half term!
