Reception

Our topic is ‘My World and Beyond’ which will be taught through Early Years Foundation Stage areas of learning: Religious Education; Communication and Language; Physical Development; Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.

In RE, we will be learning about Creation, Weddings, Advent and Christmas.

As part of our topic, we will look at ourselves, the world around us and the similarities and differences between the different parts of our world.  We will fly off into space to discover and visit the moon and the planets within our solar system.

Here are some of the activities that the children will be doing in the next term:

Learning new songs, rhymes, poems & stories about our world and space

Stories from our class author, Giles Andreae, and tales around the world
