Welcome to Reception!
This term in Reception will be exploring all the amazing things that nature has to offer. Beginning with a local woodland walk we explore animals habitats and try and spot some of the animals mentioned in our latest story the Gruffalo.
Fairness and Justice
The blatant unfairness of life is not a new phenomenon – it is a truth that has been grappled with over many centuries. Pupils are engaged by RE that seems relevant in contemporary life. Fairness and justice are real problems is practical terms, and religions and worldviews not only teach about this but encourage religious believers to act justly and fairly through practices and a call to action. It is for this reason that very often pupils find teaching about fairness and justice engaging and stimulating. Many agreed syllabuses and guidelines have outcomes for pupils around beliefs into action or aims that suggest pupils should ‘express with increasing discernment their personal reflections and critical responses to questions and teachings about identity, diversity, meaning and value, including ethical issues.
This term we'll explore the following biblical stories:
The unforgiving servant
The story of King Solomon
The story of Zacchaeus
We follow the NCETM Mastery Maths programme to help your child build a solid foundation and understanding of numbers. Featured heavily in this programme is Numberblocks. The children greatly enjoy meeting the different characters and helping them solve their latest number challenge.
We invited parents to take part in a maths workshop with their children. It was great to see so many parents engaging with their children's learning and enjoying the maths games. It was an excellent opportunity for us to share more about the program we follow and to give parents the chance to ask us some questions.
