Attached are the curriculum maps for our learning this academic year. They are split into half-termly overviews. I must emphasise that these maps are a simple guide to the learning which may occur but, due to the child-led nature of Reception, these topics may change with the children's diverse interests.

 

Autumn 1 - All About Me

Autumn 2 - Light and Dark

Spring 1 - Frozen!

Spring 2 - Fairies and Super Me!

Summer 1 - Growing

Summer 2 - Through the Looking Glass

RE - Yearly Overview

This Friday, we will be sending home our first learning logs for you to complete at home. You will have two weeks to complete each learning log - we ask that they be returned on the second Thursday after they are given out on a Friday so they can be looked at and are ready to return again.

It is entirely up to you how you choose to fill in your learning log. You might choose lots of practical activities such as writing in flour, sand, soil etc or counting using sweets and so may want to attach photos. You may want to attach your child's work on different pieces of paper they have used. Or you may simply choose for your child to do their work straight onto the learning log pages directly. You may also want to write a brief description of any activities you have undertaken with your child or any direct quotes they have made. Feel free to attach any additional work your child produces if you think they have worked hard!

Please just make sure to use the space on the double page around the outside of the learning log sheet to attach your child's work however you choose to! If you need to use additional space, feel free to use the next page but try not to use too many additional pages as this will fill up the books very quickly.

Below is an example of how the learning logs will look in the book. They will be placed in the centre of the double page and the space around the outside will be used for you to attach the work.

We hope you enjoy sharing your child's learning and I look forward to seeing all the exciting activities you enjoy!

Please find attached the curriculum overview for the second half of the Autumn term (November to December). Our topic this half term will focus around Festivals of Light and Winter. Remember, these topics change regularly because they are based around the children's own interests and as such, should only be viewed as a guideline for learning.

I have attached a simple sheet that can be printed off for you to tell us all about the special things you witness you child doing at home.

This could be recognising letters or words they couldn't previously decode, reading increasingly difficult sentences, counting up to higher numbers, solving maths problems, creating artwork or making scientific observations about their world. 

Feel free to attach a photograph or your child's drawing in the box and write a brief description of what exactly it was that made you think 'WOW!'

Sheets can be found here and will also be printed and hung up outside our classroom.

Below you will find a link for our first Autumn half term curriculum overview which will show the skills the children will be learning this half term. Due to the nature of the Early Years Foundation Stage, the topics and ideas may change as we plan from the children's own interests and so these plans are only to be used as a guideline.
