Spring Term  Curriculum

We are going to be learning all about Winter this half term. About why water freezes and what happens to ice if we let it get warm. We will be exploring what happens to chocolate if we hold it in our hands and we might even taste it! 

Later we will be looking at reflective materials and finding out why the emergency  services  use them on their uniforms, and we might even have a special visitor.  To round off the half term we will learning about nocturnal animals and even meeting a few owls from Kielder Bird of Prey Sanctuary. Have a look at the link below to see what else we will be   learning about.

In R.E. we are going to learn all about stories from the Old Testament and the Torah starting with Noah and the Ark.


In PSED we will be using the Jigsaw resources to be learning about "Solving problems and make friends" and how we can achieve in our classes. 




The Reception children will continue their daily phonics work using the Read Write Inc. programme of study. The children are doing really well with their weekly reading books and we are really enjoying hearing their early reading and storytelling. Keep writing in your child's reading record to let us know how they are getting on at home! Soon we will be sending home a Read Write Inc book that your child will have practise ate school with their friends. 



Remember to come and use our Library. You can visit the library any day between 3.05-3.20pm. It has proven to be very popular so far but if you are yet to try it, pop in and take a look after school!





Class Dojo   

Every parent has the opportunity to connect to their child's Class Dojo account; this is an excellent opportunity to communicate with your child's class teacher and celebrate your child's achievements both at home and school.  


 Although we have some topics which we cover every year, such as, Ourselves, Autumn and Christmas  most of our topics arise from the children's own interests.


 The curriculum in the

foundation stage is based on the seven areas of learning laid

out in the Development Matters in the Foundation Stage document,

implemented in September 2012, which can be viewed below.
