Reception Long Term Plan 2023/24


Autumn 1 

Which bread from around the world do we like the most?

Children will explore a range of breads and make preferences on which they like. They will learn that food can be made up of different parts.

They will express their likes and dislikes and represent this data and interpret this.

Using this information, the children will make sandwiches based on their preferences.

Project outcomes:

  • Bread tasting from around the world and displaying our favourites mathematically
  • Making bread/sandwiches, spreading and creating halves and quarters
