Class Teachers: Mrs Georgiou (Reception) and Mrs Gibson & Miss Whitehouse (Nursery)

This year, our teaching will take a different approach. Rather than learning about a topic across the half term, we will be exploring three different key books every half term.
Our key books this half term will be:
We will be talking about how our families are all different and will be drawing family portraits.
We will be mark making outside with sticks and mud.
We will be making our own stickmen using natural resources collected from outside.
The Jolly Christmas Postman
We will be writing letters to Santa.
Finding out about the role of a postman/post lady
Recognising numbers in the environment, especially the numbers on house doors.
The Elf on the Shelf
We will be writing Christmas shopping lists.
Making toys and wrapping presents in our Santa’s grotto role play area.
Comparing the size of presents and putting them in order.
Weighing different parcels to see which is the heaviest and lightest.
The Christmas Story
We will be using our Bethlehem role play area to retell the story, taking on the roles of key characters from the story.
Sequencing pictures from the Christmas story.
Learning songs to help us retell the story for our nativity ‘A miracle in town’.
