Reception Autumn Term

Honey Pot!

It’s all things bears this half term in Reception. We learn lots of interesting facts about bears in all areas of the curriculum.

In literacy we look at the well-known stories of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’. We re-tell the stories, make masks, write a letter and continue to practise all of our letter sounds and busy bee words.

In maths we practise our counting, ordering and addition skills with numbers to 10, and learn about comparing different weights

We have lots of fun learning about special festivals such as Diwali, Hanukkah and of course Christmas!

It is a creative term indeed! We respond to music in the style of the Bear Hunt adventure. By exploring different techniques and materials we create 3D collage Bear Hunt maps and use our drawing skills to create pictures of real bears considering form and shape.

The fun doesn’t stop there as we learn how to make porridge and best of all we get to taste it, yum, yum!

What a busy term we have, and it gets even busier leading up to Christmas as we all get ready for our Christmas play. We learn lots of new songs and help make our Christmas costumes.
