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!
Autumn half term 1
Our theme this half term is ''Magical Me!" We will be settling the children in and finding out all about their interests, likes and dislikes. We will be sharing our rules and routines as well as taking part in lots of circle time activities. We will be celebrating the children's achievements every day through our super sunshine display as well as having a Star of the Week in each class. The emphasis this half term will be on personal, social and emotional development; beginning their phonics and reading journey and developing their awareness of early number and mathematical understanding. We will also be supporting your child to develop independence during the lunchtime routine using cutlery correctly whilst in addition, encouraging social skills and good manners. Due to the current situation, we are unable to have a formal PE lesson this half term, however, the children will all receive a 25 minute weekly cycling session in a small group led by British Cycling coach Simon. We will also be exploring our outdoor environment on a daily basis.
We will be sending a home-learning phonics book as well as logins for our digital learning platforms in due course.
