Reception - Owls

We like to get stuck in! 

Our aim is to provide the children with a smooth (but exciting!) transition into school. We believe that if you sing, dance, look, touch, listen, play, make, explore, act, draw and sometimes get quite mucky, then you're learning lots.

Each week, we will email out a sheet outlining some of the things that your child will be doing and learning that week so you can talk to them about their learning at home. We love to hear about what your child has done at home so please share their achievements using a 'WOW' moment sheet. We will then be able to add these to their learning journeys.

The Owls have six topics over the course of the year. For more information about our Reception curriculum, please follow the link on the left to our curriculum page.

'Off we go!' into Term 6. This topic covers journeys: where we might go, how we might get there, what we might see...As part of this work, we will accompany Mr Gumpy as he gives some very difficult passengers a ride in his motor car. We will go further afield and visit China to learn about the origins and customs of the exciting Dragon Boat Festival. As if this wasn't far enough away, we will leave Earth and travel into space, landing on the moon. With any luck we might bump into some aliens! Having come back to Earth with a bump, we will go on a lion hunt and try to discover exactly what 'Handa's Surprise' is. After all of that, we're ready for our summer break so that we're rested and prepared for our own exciting journey into Year 1.
