Welcome to Reception.


Welcome back to the summer term. The weather has improved and we're excited to learn lots of new things. 


The summer term started in a very exciting manner! We went to visit our new wildlife area but found that a rocket had crash landed in it! This has got us thinking about where it could have come from, so this term we will be exploring this in a lot more detail and we find out about outer space!


Lots of exciting things happened in Reception in the Spring term! 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!




Our theme in the Spring term was Explorers. The children learnt 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!



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 will add information about the different areas of learning as the year 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.
