At St. Mary's we place the children at the heart of everything we do

Autumn Term

In the Reception Class we are always very busy learning both in and outside of the classroom. We follow a play based curriculum with a balance of child initiated and adult led activities where children are encouraged to follow their own interests and become independent and resourceful learners. 
Our first trip in the Autumn term is to Falmouth Art Gallery as part of our topic on 'Animals'. The children went on a hunt around the gallery to find lots different animals, and then created their own group compositions based on the types birds they had spotted.
This trip really enables the children's learning to come to life and supports our classwork back in school.
As part of our 'Animal' topic, we learned all about spiders! We were very lucky that Mr Rose was able to bring in his pet Bird Eating Spider - we looked carefully for the spider's spinneret.
