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 1 2017

This half term our theme is 'Magical Me'. We will be spending lots of time getting to know the children and their likes and dislikes. The children will get to spend time with their key person and the rest of their group by participating in circle time games and activities. We will also be finding out about what the children can do and will support them with writing their first name using the correct letter formation and pencil grip. We will be painting self-portraits and will be drawing pictures of our family. The children will be taking a walk down to Stalybridge Library to listen to some rhymes and stories and look at some picture books. We will begin phonic sessions, go on number and shape hunts within the environment and will be practising our counting skills!
