Love of Learning, Love of Life, Love of One Another
Welcome to Reception.
During this second half term our topic is entitled ‘’Elmer’s World of Colour and Pattern’.
Through our art and creative work, the children will be exploring colour mixing, creating colours tints and shades. We will investigate how rainbows are formed and use our science tent to investigate which colours are most easily seen in the dark. We will focus on the primary colours, red blue and yellow, exploring their significance in the natural world. Our role-play area will be transformed into a painting and decorating business with the children creating patterned wall coverings as part of their mathematical development. We will share a selection of colour related stories, in particular the Elmer series of books, and respond to these texts in creative ways. The children will continue to explore movement, shape and balance in their PE sessions together with opportunities for expressive dance and drama.
In our RE and Spiritual Development discussions, we will share the stories and customs associated with the Diwali festival of light and look forward to celebrating Christmas together, sharing the Nativity Story and celebrating the birth of Jesus. The children will be learning songs to perform for you as part of our celebrations.
