The best me that I can be!


Welcome to Reception.


Welcome back to the spring term and a very Happy New Year to you all! We hope you had a restful holiday.



Lots of exciting things have happened in Reception recently! On Thursday 1st March it was World Book Day. All of the children and staff in Reception dressed up as their favourite book characters. We also had some parents visit to read a story to the children!



This term’s theme is Explorers and the children will be learning lots about Africa, different animals and the jungle. We came in to find these strange footprints one day and the children were very excited!


This made us think about where the footprints may have come from. Here is an example of one of our ideas!



We can't wait to find out more about the footprints and all of the different animals that may have left them!


On Monday 15th January we had a visit from a police puppy in training! Iris and her trainer, Mike, came to show us some of the things that Iris has been learning to do. It also helped Iris to become more familiar and comfortable with large groups of children!








We have also been thinking about Mothers’ Day this term and reading lots of Traditional Tales.


We will add information about the different areas of learning as the term goes on so please keep an eye out.



Please find below some useful videos that will help you with your child's learning at home.
