Reception Class O, Term 2Curriculum Bulletin
Welcome back to the second term and probably the busiest of the year! I am really looking forward to getting started with the children’s nativity play and all the other events that make this time of year so exciting! I would like to say a big thank you to those of you who have kindly offered to volunteer with reading and other projects in the classroom, we are looking forward to getting going with that this term as well. Forest school will also be starting this term. Please see more information about this on the back! Any queries please get in touch.Mia Owens

This term the children are learning about different cultures and beliefs. We will be looking at the important features of different religions such as the buildings, celebrations and traditions.Within SEAL the children will be thinking about what their talents are and why it’s so good to use them!
Communication Language andLiteracy:
We will be exploring lots of different forms of writing this term,e.g. invitations, lists, menus and instructions. The children will also be using non-fiction texts to support their learning, using the index and contents pages to search for facts in order to answer questions.
Problem Solving Reasoning andNumeracy
Our main focus this term is consolidating the children’s understanding of number and moving on to look at addition and subtraction. We will also be exploring the patterns and shape that appear in art from different cultures, making our own and using shapes to build models.
Knowledge and Understanding ofthe World:
The children will be encouraged to ask questions about different religions and cultures this term in order to extend their understanding. We will be using recycled modelling to build models of important buildings within different cultures, focusing on the skills they need to join and adapt the resources.
The PE topic this term is dance. We will be exploring music and movement from different cultures, with the children working together to create their own dances. Fine motor control will continue to be a focus.
Looking at art from around the world provides an exciting basis for the exploration of different creative techniques and approaches. There will be lots of restaurant themed role play as cooking and eating are a big part of all celebrations!
