SRE Curriculum

This year we will continue to teach the children using materials from our new Sex and Relationships Education (SRE) scheme.

2. What is going on in Goldcrest class in 2019/20?

Welcome to another new year in Reception! 

We are so excited to be starting in Goldcrest and we have had a fun few days exploring our new classroom.

We are looking forward to getting to know each other and to begin our new learning journey.

Goldcrest have enjoyed a gingerbread man themed week. We even made and ate our own gingerbread biscuits out in the meadow. 
Well! What  a lovely first term we have had. We have made lots of new friends , we have worked together to explore different stories and ideas, , we have enjoyed learning new sounds and digraphs in Phonics and we have been discovering different areas of learning inside and outside our classroom. We have finished with our Nativity story which we performed to all our grown ups. We have had so much fun!

We have had fun exploring The scarecrows Wedding and castles and dragons.

Your class teacher will update this page at least once per term with photos and information on recent events or activities.
