Year Reception

Welcome to Year Reception – Miss Amy McNamee and Miss Lucy Widdess

Keep an eye on our class page where we will update you with what we have been learning in school, ways you can help at home and other important information. 

Term 3

Welcome to Term 3! We hope you all have a well deserved break and all enjoyed yourselves over Christmas and New Year. This term we will be learning all about Space! Click here to have a look at the Learning Log that has been sent home, it is filled with ideas of how you can help at home. 

We have had a special visit from the planetarium who brought their very own inflatable dome for us to enter and explore the stars and planets.

Term 2

Welcome to Term 2 of this academic year! This term will be a busy one as we begin learning all about 'Nocturnal Animals' and start to think about the lead up to our December Christmas performances. Keep your eyes peeled for important dates and information which can be found on the school website, in newsletters, learning logs and on our notice board in the play ground. We will have lots of different events coming soon such as Children in Need, Christmas parties, this year's nativity, a Church Service, and showcases of our work in class. 

We will still be continuing our weekly trips to the Green Space to take part in Forest Schools this term. The weather is more likely to be wet and windy this term so please bring in wellies if you have them and please make sure your child has a coat. 

Wriggly Roadshow visit

To kick start our topic of 'Nocturnal Animals' we had some very special visitors! James from the 'Wriggly Roadshow' brought in a range of animals for us to learn about and we even had the opportunity to hold them. We learnt all about their sleeping habits, diet, habitats and lots of other fascinating facts! Have a look at the photos below.




Thank you for your continued support at home, keep reading at least four days a week and look in the blue Learning Log book for more ideas of how to support your child's learning!

Term 1

This term our learning is focused around the theme of 'All About Me'. We will be thinking about how we are all unique and special and will be looking at similarities and differences between ourselves and others. If you take a look inside our classrooms you will be able to see our self-portraits that we have painted proudly on display! 

As detailed in our class newsletter, we are also taking part in 'Forest School' every Thursday this term. This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the Green Space and make the most of learning outdoors, getting hands-on whilst gaining new skills. If you have wellies at home, please bring a pair to keep at school for Thursdays as we will be attending whatever the weather! The school will provide waterproofs.                                                                  

  Here are just a few photos of what we have been getting up to when we are at Forest Schools:

We look forward to sharing more of our learning with you!
