Welcome to Reception Class
Class Teacher: Mrs Cairns & Mrs White
This term in reception, our learning will be focused on our local environment and discovering what is around us. We will start by asking the question, ‘How can we learn about our local community?’
Through this we will be looking at google maps and other simple forms of map making and images to discover more about where we live. We will invite visitors in to talk about their roles within the community and hopefully visit a few of them too.
After finding out about the wonders of where we live, we will then move onto our second part of our learning enquiry. This will ask the question, ‘How can we support our local community?’
The children will think carefully about what they can do to support their community, in particular, focusing on their love for animals and Shaldon zoo. We hope to think about ways we can raise enough money so we will be able to adopt an animal there.
