Over the hills and far away, Teletubbies come out to play with Ukid School Reception children. Join Reception as we continue to build and develop your child’s inner self. With the Teletubbies they will be able to find their voice, by growing confidence whilst learning with the Teletubbies. Teletubbies was a young children’s programme that was first established in 1997 and ran till 2001, it has been recently revived in 2015. Each episode is set in a beautiful, typically British, grassy setting called Tubbyland.
During this topic students will learn about love and how to express their emotions and have good relationships with others. They will develop listening and responding techniques, essential to modern day living. They will be comfortable with who they are and what they enjoy and begin to explore new intriguing opportunities that they may not have felt they could do before. Their ability to express themselves and communicate in English will be developed whilst exploring and understanding the world around them. This is a British topic the can not be missed with many culture rich and exciting activities such as dancing, rainbow experiments and learning about modern day technology.

The Teletubbies are an incredibly important part of British children’s childhoods from the 1997s to the present day. There are books, DVD’s and countless television episodes that have engaged and taught many generations from Britain. They have been created in a way to keep young minds thoroughly engaged and active but also introduce them to situations and life lessons they will undoubtably need to learn from. This is the structure the topic will continue with, as we all know children learn best when they are completely engaged.
Teletubbies offer colourful characters that young children can relate to. They offer a routine that helps children feel confident, happy and safe. We have created a topic that give children the opportunity to learn words that are vital for day to day living in Britain. They will continue to build on this key language and form sentences, ask questions and answer them successfully.
In the Teletubbies first week we will be focusing on English. Students will become familiarised with the individual Teletubbies and being to identify and name their favourite things.
Then in performing arts students will learn how to move in different ways: twist, roll, wave and turn. They will use a Teletubby dance as a stimulus then learn two whole dances using these moves throughout the week.
During history students will focus on modern day technology and compare it to the old. This is a vital lesson to understand how things have and will continue to change in the world and will challenge students to begin to think of themselves playing a part in the future of the world.
The Teletubbies are renowned for their love for each other and promoting respect and happiness. So, during PSHE we will focus on the feelings happy and sad and then how to show affection and help others who might be feeling sad.
Science will see Reception go into the Ukid School science laboratory and conduct some fantastic rainbow experiments after learning all about the features in the sky. Also, students will make their very own yummy ‘Tubby Custard’ in lesson 2.
British flowers are very important in our culture and to the Teletubbies. Therefore, in Geography, students will recap their knowledge of flowers and learn how to identify: a sunflower, daisy, daffodil and a rose.
在数学课上，我们会学习一系列的反义词：高和矮，白天和黑夜等，学生将能够运用所学的知识来造句，比如：‘I am tall’, ‘Laa-Laa is short.’ 或者 ‘The flower is short’.
We will continue to learn about opposites in maths focusing on tall and short and day and night, students will be able to use their previous knowledge to begin to form sentences such as ‘I am tall’, ‘Laa-Laa is short.’ Or ‘The flower is short’.
Finally, in art students will explore how to manipulate two different materials, play dough and paint. They will take inspiration from a famous painter Jaxon Pollock who uses actions to create splats and flicks with paint. Students will create their own Teletubby hat using this technique.
The benefits your child can gain from this topic are endless. As with every topic our main goal is that your child develops a love of learning that will never leave them and will shape them into the successful individuals, with a strong voice, that they deserve to be. They will take another great step toward being truly part of British culture and towards a successful life and career.
The Teletubbies will engage your child in order for them to be confident and happy whilst learning and growing into the best versions on themselves. We will continue to listen closely to their individual needs and respond quickly to yours and their feedback. Their academic skills will be strengthened with the highest standard of British vocabulary and their emotional skills will enhanced for them to build on their moral beliefs and humanity. We look forward to working with your child as they continue on their journey.
