Spring Term

This term our topic is called

'Once upon a time'


We asked the children what they would like to find out about our topic. They gave us lots of ideas about what they want to learn about. 


Can we learn a fairytale song?

What do castles look like?

If we get lost like Hansel and Gretel how can we find our way home?

How tall is the beanstalk?

Can we vote for our favourite fairytale?

Can we use shapes to make a pig?


Here are some of the books we will be reading.   

Hairdressers Role Play

We have had lots of fun in our new role play area this term. We have used our imaginations to become customers and hairdressers. We love dressing up in the wigs and giving each other compliments!

Fairyland Bakery Role Play

We have loved exploring our Fairyland Bakery this term. We have pretended to be bakers by following steps to make cookies and serving customers. We dressed up as fairytale characters and imagined we were customers shopping in the bakery.


After reading Cinderella we talked about how glass slippers might not be very safe! The children decided we should make new shoes for Cinderella. We tested lots of different materials and decided that Cinderella needs new leather shoes!

Making Apple Crumble

We read Snow White and spent the week learning all about apples! We love apples in Reception and decided to bake a delicious apple crumble to eat for snack. We loved making our own snack and can't wait to do it again!

Autumn Term

This term our topic is called

'Twinkle, Twinkle, Celebration!'


We asked the children what they would like to find out about our topic. They gave us lots of ideas about what they want to explore - stars, space, planets, rockets, astronauts, aliens, day and night. 


Here are some of the books we will be reading to help us.   


Learning Through Play

Owl Babies

We have loved our rocket role play area. We have enjoyed imagining we are astronauts exploring different planets and going on space adventures!

Mark Making

Where have you two been?

After reading Where have you two been? we enjoyed becoming scientists and exploring Autumn items. We learnt about hedgehogs and had lots of fun making our very own! We explored our Autumn table and retold the story.

Whatever Next!

Man on the Moon

After we read Man on the Moon, we were very lucky to get a visit from the Star Dome! Inside we learnt all about space, the moon landings, astronauts and we loved being surrounded by the stars and planets.

Cinema Trip

We enjoyed our trip to the cinema to watch Paw Patrol. We had lots of fun making predictions about what would happen next, talking about the characters and their emotions and learning about gravity and how it works.
