Welcome to Reception Class
Class Teacher: Mrs Cairns & Mrs White
As Autumn is now upon us with its colder days and nights drawing in daily, we have decided that what better way to support our learning but to use the world around us and to look at the changes that Autumn brings. Our enquiry will answer the question: ‘What makes Autumn special?’ We will look at animal habits during this time and investigate what one would expect to see on autumn walks and the important harvest celebrations and how this is celebrated. Alongside this, we will discuss the question, ‘What makes a good learner?’ This will incorporate the fundamentals of how we learn best and our values and expectations of Shaldon school.
Throughout these enquiries, the children will be given opportunities to achieve their early learning goals through creative and purposeful play as well as structured daily phonic sessions using letters and sounds and maths sessions which will be both group led and carefully incorporated into independent led activities.
