Dalmatians  EH



Welcome to Dalmatians EH. Here you can find up to date information about the MAGIC learning that your child will be taking part in during our topics. We have lots of fun learning in Dalmatians and have many MAGIC moments every day. To strengthen our links between home and school we have included some useful links below to provide key information and opportunities for children to continue their learning at home. Share them with your child and ask them to show you all of the fabulous learning that we have been doing in school. 


Let's meet our Spotacular staff!

This page is intended to help you feel involved and informed of everything that we do.

Please take the time to explore our page where you will find lots of important information about your child's learning.


In our class, we encourage the children to be; 


We are always ready to learn.

We are patient and we pay attention so that we can be super learners!


We look after each other and the school property.

We take care in all that we do.


We listen carefully so that we are safe at all times.

We use our kind hands and we follow the instructions all of the time.


     Here is a copy of a generic timetable in the Reception class to give you an idea of what your child's day may look like. 

This term our topics will be:

Autumn 1: What do I know about me?

The children will be learning to talk about themselves and their families. We will discuss how we are the same and different, what makes a family, we will discuss what we look like and what we are good at.

We will be focusing on many texts including:  The Little Red Hen, Peter and the Wolf,

Autumn 2: Why are there so many leaves on the ground?

The children will be learning about the seasons and different types of weather. We will discuss changes over time and how the world around us changes through the Autumn/Winter. We will explore the different colours of autumn leaves and how we can create new colours by mixing primary colours.


We will be focusing on the key texts: Percy the Park Keeper and Stickman.
