This half-term the children will be learning about our new topic through our exciting books about Winter Wonderland. This week, we will enter our frozen classroom to find an egg that has been left behind. Over the next few days, we will discuss ways to look after our mysterious egg and try to predict which winter animal will hatch out of it. Each week our focus activities and whole class discussions will be based around one of our winter stories: William’s Winter Wish, The Not So Perfect Penguin, The Snowman and many more. The children will also be reading non-fiction books about animals that live in the Arctic, to find out about their features, how they develop and their habitat. Please take a look at our Reception Newsletter for more information about events taking place this half-term.
In order to provide our children with an enriched curriculum, we are asking all Reception parents for a contribution of clean and unwanted materials that could be too good to throw away i.e: Colourful fabric such as Saris/scarves, yarn/wool, cotton balls, ribbon, buttons and beads. The contribution is voluntary and will be accepted at any time throughout the year. They will be used for developing children’s skills in expressive arts and design and being imaginative. Please ensure that the items are washed/clean and give them to your child’s class leader in a plastic bag.
Thank you for your continued generosity.
