Autumn Term 2

Heroes! People who help us.

This term the children in Reception will be learning about who our very own heroes are.

Using our skills to explore our theme, we will be focusing on people who make a difference in our lives and thinking about how we all can make a difference. We will be learning about different jobs, for example police men and women and people working in health care. We will also have fun exploring superheroes and delve into the story of Q Pootle 5 by Nick Butterworth.

As writers we will be writing our own hero adventures and developing our story telling skills.

As Readers we will be learning new sounds and exploring more stories we can retell by ourselves.

As Mathematicians we will be developing our measuring skills, learning 3D shapes.

As Scientists we will be learning about how our body works and what we need to survive.

As Geographers we will be looking at the changing of the season and how to keep well in the cold.

As Artists and Designers we will be creating a role-play space station and designing our own superhero capes and rockets.

As historians we will learn about extinct creatures from the past.

As Philosophers we will develop our speaking and listening skills, aiming to listen and respond respectfully to the ideas of others and justify our own opinions.
