Our theme this half term

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 2 2017

This half term our theme is 'Let's Celebrate!' We will be focusing upon the traditional tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears and will learn how to retell the story and act it out too! We will also be making our own porridge for special snack and will be observing the changes. We will also be focusing upon 'cold places' and will learn about 'hibernation'. Following this, we will be focusing upon the stories Stick Man, The Gingerbread Man and The Christmas Story. We can't wait to visit Santa at Cockfields Farm and will be able to feed the animals there. We will be continuing with our bike sessions on a Wednesday afternoon and will have PE sessions with Tony our sports coach on a Tuesday morning. We will be busy preparing for our Nativity play and will be getting very messy using glitter and glue to create our Christmas goodies!
