Reception Curriculum MapAUTUMN 2 Topic - Transport & Julia Donaldson
Communication, Language & Literacy
We will be extending our vocabulary by using WOW adjectives in our sentences whilst looking at buildings around the world and stories by Julia Donaldson. After reading The Stickman, we will look at rhyming words and create our own. We will also be exploring different modes of transport and writing about them.
Using our knowledge of letters and sounds we will be making invitations to our Christmas Nativity. This half term we will be grouping the children for phonics. This is so we can ensure each child is being challenged appropriately within their knowledge of letters and sounds.
BASICS & Characteristics of Learning
- Playing and Exploring – being willing to ‘have a go’ at a range of activities.
- Active Learning – being involved and concentrating.
Personal, Social & Emotional
We will be using ourselves, objects and unifix cubes to demonstrate this in a practical way. Through hands-on exploration and games, we will be learning to add two groups of objects together. Measuring length is fun in Reception – we will be learning to measure each other, objects, and furniture using non-standard measurements for e.g. footprints, straws and unifix cubes.
Expressive Arts & Design
We will be looking at different types of transport and how they are made. During the international week, we will be watching clips of dances from around the world and will try to copy how people move to different music.
