Welcome to the web page for Reception Class
This term the overarching topic is 'Our Wonderful World'. The overview for this is in the links below. We will be learning more about the world around us (the environment, seasons, weather, places) as well as more about the people within it (similarities and differences, our families, further development of friendships and social skills).
Each week or two we will have a new story book to act as a stimulus for much of our learning. I will aim to update this web page with the current book titles should you want to ask about them at home.
We look forward to more enjoyment, excitement and great learning over the next few months.

The day the zoo came
We had a Zoos4You visit this term. Here are some of the animals we saw.
Building bridges for Science Week
Years R, 1 and 2 worked together in science week. We read the story of the 3 Billy Goats Gruff and were challenged to make the strongest bridge so the goats could move safely. We tried different materials to investigate which would be the strongest. Great teamwork!
Things that grow
Reception children went to the peace garden to look for things that grew and changed. We talked about the changing seasons and how that affected plants. The children drew and wrote the things they saw which grew and changed.
Nativity dress rehearsal
The children performed their Nativity show so well, we were all very proud! These are a few photos taken in the dress rehearsal.
We made stained glass window poppies for the whole school Remembrance memorial. We talked about what the poppies represented.
