Spring 1

Happy New Year and welcome back to Spring 1. This half term our learning with be based around the question, 'What does it take to be a superhero?'. We will be reading lots of books about different Superheros (our favourite so far is Supertato, by Sue Hendra). We will be finding out about our Swarcliffe Super Heroes who help us to understand the skills we need to learn as well as looking at everyday superheroes where we live.


Autumn 2 

Why do we celebrate?


Welcome back to Reception. We hope you have had a relaxing break because this half term is going to be a busy one! The learning in Reception this half term is going to be based around celebrations. We will be having a bonfire party, celebrating Larry and Benjy's birthday, organising a wedding and of course getting ready for our Nativity performance.
