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 2 2018
Our theme this half term is 'Let's Celebrate!' We will be learning all about important festivals and anniversaries this year including Bonfire Night, Diwali and Remembrance Day. We will be strengthening our hand and finger muscles to support our writing skills, for example, by having a dough disco! We will be focusing mainly upon the stories - Rama and Sita, The Gingerbread Man, Stick Man and The Christmas Story. Linked to these stories, there will be lots of fun activities that we will be enjoying such as - making Diya lamps; making stick men and making our own gingerbread men to name but a few! We will also be going on a winter walk and will be visiting Cockfields Farm to see Santa and to feed the animals! Linked to learning about winter, we will talk about cold places, hibernation, be making bird-feeders and create some lovely 'cold' colour collages. In addition to this, we will be having lots of Christmas fun and writing lists for Santa! Phew...what a busy half term!
