Still image for this video
If you have a child in reception, please watch the video above before attending the First Family Friday session, which will take place on Friday 8th October from 9am-10am.



As part of our learning this week we explored Halloween. We learned about what happens during this time and how some people celebrate it at home. In Reception this week we have had a fantastic time drawing faces on the pumpkins!

14/10/2021- Reading in Reception

This week in Reception we have really enjoyed spending time and reading in our new reading room! We have also been enjoying reading in other areas of Reception too such as outside in our reading nook. We have been exploring the ‘talking area’ a lot more this week and having conversations with our friends about the things we see in the pictures.


7/10/2021- This is Our House

As part of our English sessions we are reading the book: This is our house. In the story George is playing in a box house and is not sharing the house with the other children. In Reception this week we have been building houses in our outdoor area. We were very excited to share our work with you. We had a fantastic time!

30/9/2021- The Number Three

We have had another busy week in Reception this week! We learnt all about number 3 this week so we decided to make number 3 monsters. Our monsters had three eyes, three arms and some even had three heads! We also enjoyed making bracelets using small colourful beads and thin pieces of string. This was a challenge but we tried our very best to put the string through the beads. We can’t wait for next week’s activities!


23/09/2021-  My Face

We have worked very hard in Reception this week! First we enjoyed learning about our facial features. Next we were very excited to find a photo of our face and then we used the paint to paint our bodies. We explored how to mix the colours and talked about our findings. We had a fantastic time and we are very excited for our next piece of learning!

17/09/2021- Reception Learning

We had a wonderful week in Reception! We enjoyed investigating our new areas, both inside and outside. We explored the sand area where we discovered treasure hidden by pirates! We also hid from a scary dragon in the tree house, but don’t worry we set up a trap to catch it. We played with water and enjoyed drawing pictures using paint markers and coloured pencils. We had a fantastic time and can’t wait to see what adventures next week holds!


10/09/2021-Back to School for Reception 

Our Reception children have had a fantastic start to the new term. They were very excited to have their first PE and Music sessions this week.
