We are very proud of our Reception Classrooms. We love to learn and play.

Book corner: We love to read lots of stories here.


Art Area: Here we like to create lots of masterpieces.

Sand Pit: We are very lucky to have an indoor sandpit. We love to experiment with pouring and touching the sand. We also enjoy cooking with it.

Fruit Shop: We are able to purchase different fruits that are on offer to us and pay the shopkeeper real money.

Music Area: We love to make up our own songs like real musicians.

We enjoy a curriculum that provides us with real life experiences and celebrates our culture. 

Summer 1:

24th and 26th April 2018: We are going on our first school trip. We are all VERY excited to see the animals at Bocketts Farm. We will

also get to ride a tractor and watch a goat be


ing milked.

Spring 2:

We have already been so busy this term. We have taken part in a lot of experiences.

We have watched the ducks hatch out of their eggs, we noticed the change in weather, we celebrated World Book Day and Holi.

We have been having lots of fun and learning lots of new and exciting things.

Spring 1:

This term we will be learning about People Who Help Us.

Please see below for a weekly breakdown of the term.

We have set up different role plays in each class room which enables the children to have a go at trying out different professions. This year we have a Police Station, a Baby Clinic and a Hairdressers.

We have had a very exciting few weeks in Reception.

The Dentist and the Police have already visited us. We found the visits really exciting and informative.

Week Beginning 22nd January: The fire brigade came to visit us! We all thought they were really interesting, we even got to try on their helmets!

We have also been very busy with our maths learning. We have been focusing on measures, particularly length and weight.


Autumn Term:

We have been discussing the change in seasons. We went on a nature walk around the school and we noticed how the

leaves have changed colour and have fallen from the trees. We were comparing the shape and size of the leaves.

Here are a couple of the things that we setup for the children during Bonfire week.

During maths time, we went on number hunt in our outdoor environment. Once we found a number, we tried to gather

that number of leaves and then write the digit.


There has been lots of excitement in Reception this week (Week beginning 20th November 2017). We have had some special

visitors to come and watch over us in the lead up to Christmas!!! We are busy choosing names for our Elves and making sure we make good choices.
