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!
Spring Half Term 1 - 2021
This half term, our theme will be 'Healthy bodies, Healthy Minds'. We will be focusing upon how to keep our bodies healthy and fit through eating the right foods and exercising regularly. We will also be talking about good dental hygiene and learning how to brush our teeth properly. We will also be making healthy soups and baking healthy muffins for our special snacks. To support our emotional wellbeing, we will be talking about what we are good at and what makes us happy. Our main stories will be Oliver's Fruit Salad, Oliver's Vegetables, George and the Happy Tooth, Colour Monsters and Handa's Surprise. In our Storytime Phonics lessons, we will be focusing upon the Phase 3 phonemes. In Mathematics, we will be focusing upon partitioning and ordinal numbers. We will be learning all about Saint Valentine and we will also be observing the changes we see in the weather outside; bird-watching and making bird feeders!
