Welcome to Ben Nevis - Reception

Welcome to Ben Nevis - Reception

Ben Nevis is our Reception class at Fosse Bank. We cover a different topic every half term and aim to fully immerse the children in all areas of learning every day.

Reading

In reception we plan around quality children’s literature. The direction we take is often led by the children themselves, we just ensure that all curriculum needs are met while satisfying their natural curiosity.

In the Autumn term we start with ‘Owl Babies’ by Martin Waddell. The owl chicks wake one night to find their mother has gone. The story follows the emotions that the chicks feel as they wait for their mothers return, a similar set of feelings that new Reception children may have about starting school. In the second half of the term we look at Michael Rosen’s ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ with all its wonderful descriptive language and foot stomping rhythm.

Wonderful Outdoor Space

Both of our chosen books lend themselves well to life at Fosse Bank with plenty of links to the fantastic outdoor space around us and both offer opportunities to learn more about the natural world.
