Welcome to Reception Class

Class Teacher: Mrs Jones-Whyte

Summer Term Learning


Our first learning enquiry sees us working as historians exploring the question ‘How did Grace Darling show courage?’ We will be looking at her story and reflecting on how brave and responsible she was. We will be looking at the role of lighthouses and the important job of the lighthouse keeper. Timelines will be part of our investigation – revisiting the meaning of past, present and future and making links between the interesting people we have learnt about this year such as Dr Jane Goodall and Grace Darling and how they might be connected?! This learning will prepare us nicely for our following enquiry working as geographers and exploring the thinking ‘Why are bridges important?’ We will have discovered how lighthouses cleverly and safely guide ships across the ocean which will support our thinking about transport and travel and how two places can be connected by bridges… and what would we do without them?! The troll from the 3 Billy Goats Gruff will be paying a visit I’m sure!

Later in the summer term, we will get outside and learn how mini-beasts help us – to say thank you, we will be designing and making a bug hotel once we find out about suitable habitats. This will prepare our thinking beautifully for our final enquiry of the year ‘How can we show compassion to our blue planet?’ Exploring climate change and the small changes we can do that would make a huge difference to this precious planet we call home.
