Welcome to Reception
The Busy Bees and Flamboyant Flamingo classes love to learn.
Throughout the academic year we will enjoy learning new skills and developing our knoweldge of the world around us. We start in the Autumn term finding out all about ourselves, our family and our friends in the topic ‘Ourselves’ answering the question ‘What do I know about me?’ We will also be finding out about different types of celebrations we take part in such as Bonfire Night and Diwali and we will be celebrating at Christmas with our very own Christmas Production!!!!
In the Spring we will be reading lots of different traditional stories, acting out different stories, using puppets and writing a traditional story. We will also be looking at different types of homes, animal homes and homes around the world.
In the Summer term we will finding out about different types of animals, looking at how they grow, where they live and how they are different or the same as each other. We will also be looking at where they live.
We are very lucky to have our own outdoor area in reception and this year we will continue to develop this area further growing our own flowers and vegetables.

We have been enjoying the nice weather and have been outside looking for signs of autumn.
We collected leaves and made autumn crowns and leaf suncatchers.
We have also counted lots of different autumn objects, like apples and conkers.
We have had great fun in the sunshine, playing games with the phonemes and tricky words we have been learning in letters and sounds.
We had such fun in reception talking about and learning about Space. We made our own rockets and re-created the story from the book ‘Whatever Next’. We also made our own rockets and launched them with the balloon to see whose rocket went the furthest.
The reception children had a great time baking biscuits and cakes to sell to their parents to help raise money for children in need. We were really pleased to raise £60, thank you to everybody that bought cakes and biscuits.
We are really enjoying planting in our garden.
We learnt about how to keep healthy and enjoyed making our own sandwiches and smoothies.
