This term Reception are going ‘wild’ and looking at books connected to the forest and prehistoric
creatures. Spring 1 is all about animals that live in the forest such as foxes, owls and even wolves!
The Gruffalo’s child and Little Red Riding Hood are our two main books linked to forest animals. Julia
Donaldson is one of receptions favourite author. She uses lots of rhyme to support the flow of
reading which supports our talk for writing lessons. Mr Bramble’s favourite Julia Donaldson book is
‘Room on the Broom’.
Spring 2 is all about dinosaurs and we know it’s going to be a ‘Roar’some topic! Linked to world book
day children will be looking at books such as ‘the dinosaur that lost his roar’, ‘Am I yours?’ and ‘The
Dinosaur that Pooed a Planet’. We know this is going to be a topic our Reception will love.
During spring 2 we will also be holding our annual Easter bonnet parade, so keep your eyes open for
dates nearer the time.
