Splish Splosh!

This term the children in Reception will be learning about water and exploring sea life.

As Readers we will be learning new exciting words and practising all our sounds.

As Mathematicians we will investigate measuring objects using rulers and delving into number above ten.

As Scientists we will be getting to know properties of different materials and why we need to choose the right ones for the job.

As Geographers we will be exploring how to use maps and hunt for treasure!

As Artists and Designers we will be creating our own giant sea creatures and illustrating our class book.

As historians we will learn about how transport has changed over the years and what it was used for.

As Philosophers we will develop our speaking and listening skills, aiming to listen and respond respectfully to the ideas of others and justify our own opinions.
