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!
Autumn half term 1 2018
Welcome to reception class! Our theme this half term is 'Magical Me'. We are looking forward to working with all of our new children and in close partnership with parents/carers. We will be spending time getting to know all of the children and their interests including likes and dislikes. The children will be having circle times with their key groups and will be getting to know the names of all of their new friends and teachers. The children will also be spending lots of time exploring our fantastic outdoor area. The staff will be finding out what the children know and how we can best support them in their learning as we move forward. The children will be creating self-portraits and some interesting black and white abstract paintings. We will also be sharing lots of stories and nursery rhymes and will be practising our counting and sorting skills!
Reading and library books will be given out within the first few weeks of starting school.
