Welcome to Reception 2018-19 

After half term our topic will be animals, we will be starting off our topic by looking at Beatrix Potter stories and learning about woodland animals native to this country. We will also be thinking about food and farming and dinosaurs.

**Next Friday 24th May we will be having an outdoor learning day. The children will be experiencing different areas of the curriculum using our vast outdoor area in school - our two woodland areas, the school field etc.Reception will be taking part in a shape hunt, re-enacting traditional tales in the woods, environmental art and having a teddy bear story time. Please send in your child's favourite teddy bear and their favourite story book.**

Thank you for attending our year group presentation - we are sure that you will agree that the children were brilliant and sang their hearts out.


A little reminder from the reception team about dropping off in the mornings : To ensure that the children in reception have a calm and organised start to the school day please ensure that you stand away from the lines when the bell goes in the morning. The children should line up one behind the other behind their class circle, marked on the playground,if the VIP of the week chooses they can stand at the front of the line to lead the children in. Please do not block the line or the entrance gate with buggies.

Thank you for your understanding.


This term our topic will be growth and change - we will be planting seeds and watching them grow, observing the changes. We will be thinking about what conditions plants need to grow.



We have recently had a couple of cases of nits in reception. If your child has long hair please ensure that they come to school with their hair tied back.



The children have also been using Learn Pad tablets, take a look at the photos in the gallery.
