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
Our theme this half term is "Let's Celebrate!" We will be celebrating and learning about different festivals such as Diwali and Bonfire Night. We will also be continuing our autumnal observations within our local community and around our school grounds. We will be learning about hibernation and the different types of animals we might see in the autumn. We will also begin to practise our EYFS Nativity play - both nursery and reception together this year! - Whoops-a-Daisy-Angel. Our focus stories will be The Gingerbread Man (we will be making our very own gingerbread men!). Stick Man and The Christmas Story. We will be very busy creating calendars, cards and other Christmas crafts as well as writing a list for Santa. We can't wait for Party Day too!
