Autumn Term 2


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. We will use the books ‘So Much’, ‘Six Dinner Sid’ and That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown’.

As writers we will be writing our own hero stories and writing letters as the character Emily Brown.

As Readers we will be learning new tricky sounds and having fun with our reading voices.

As Mathematicians we will be practising forming our numbers as well as learn about money.

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

As Geographers we will be exploring and creating our own 3D maps.

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

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.
