Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of One Another
Welcome to Reception.
During this half term our topic is titled Fabulous Food. We will be talking about our favourite foods, healthy and unhealthy, and discussing the importance of food and exercise to a healthy lifestyle. We will be finding out where our food originates from, investigating changes that happen to food during the cooking process and trying to grow our own food in our garden patch. During art and craft sessions the children will be using a variety of materials to make their own representations of the food we eat, we hope to use modroc to produce fruit and vegetables for a role-play market stall and salt dough to create pastries for our role-play café. As part of our Understanding the World studies we will be exploring foods from other countries in particular looking at the traditional meals associated with specific countries. Through our Technology studies we will be investigating the use of bar codes in supermarkets and using the computer to produce decorative menus and celebration invitations.
Our RE focus this half term is linked closely to our food topic. We will be considering special celebrations, events and places in our lives in particular looking at birthday, wedding and christening celebrations. We will be sharing stories from our bible which show how important it is to share our food with others and express thanks for the food God provides.
Please remember to send your child to school with a summer coat and hat each day whatever the weather, and apply sun-cream to start the day as necessary, thank you.
