OUR TOPIC THIS TERM
This term our topic will be ‘Africa’.
We will be learning about Africa and everything in it. We live in a rich, diverse continent with an abundance of cultures, traditions and history.
There will be opportunity to explore this through role play, turning our classroom into a museum/travel office, which will in turn give children the opportunity to understand their heritage.
If the children show interest in other topics, we will also include these in our learning as we have an emphasis on child initiated learning in Reception.
Did you know there were so many different ways to learn Math? We are exploring a wide range of Math topics this term in many different ways! Take a look.
We enjoyed learning about sounds in our environment. We revised many different sounds and gone on a sound hunt to find missing sounds from our classroom! We will soon put sounds together and read some words!
We are learning all about water and the primary purpose of the educational trip was to enhance classroom learning. It provided an opportunity for students to see, touch, and experience what they have learned in the classroom. They had the opportunity to visit the water tower, walk around the facilities, see animals in their natural habitat and use all their senses to learn more about the real world. We also discussed the Mulunguzi Dam, how it provides water to our homes and the important role the Waterboard company serves in the entire process.
