Giraffe Class Reception


Topic: Colours and Celebrations


We will be continuing to look at traditional tales but from different countries.  Our main focus for the term will be ‘Colours and Celebrations’.  We will be learning about how to stay safe on bonfire night, the importance of Remembrance Day as well as learning about Christmas. 

Giraffe class will be joining with Dolphin class to perform the Christmas nativity at the end of term.

In maths, we will be focusing on number and money.  We will have a number of the week.  The children will be learning how to tally the number, find the number on the number track as well as learning one more and one less than the number. When we focus on money the children will be paying for their snack using 1p and 2p coins and setting up a shop in the classroom.

All our work in Giraffe class is either run as a class group – led by an adult, small group – led by either myself or Mrs Gillies–or child initiated.

PE is on a Tuesday afternoon with myself or Mr Chadwick.

Please feel free to ask us if you are unsure about anything.  We look forward to working with you and your child this year and being part of their learning journey.
