This term in Reception we will be learning about ‘Space and Light’. We have had a brilliant first week back after half term learning about the Hindu festival of light, Diwali. The story of Rama and Sita really seemed to capture the children’s imaginations as they made masks and puppets to act out the tale. We explored the meaning behind Diwali, and even had our own quiet reflection time, lighting a diva lamp and thinking about the things we can be thankful for.
Over the term we will be covering the topic of Space, from learning about astronauts to planets and stars. If you have any space themed books, toys or artefacts, please feel free to send them in to school for show and tell.
Our role play area this term has become a highly industrial space station, complete with astronaut costumes and the ability to transport children to any planet they can imagine! I’m looking forward to seeing the stories we can conjure up together this term.
