Reception

Welcome 

Welcome to Reception class’ page. Our Reception class has 20 pupils and is led by myself; Miss Davies. We are extremely lucky to have two teaching assistants supporting in the classroom. The teaching assistants are;Miss Edwards and Mrs Kosinski.. In the Reception year the children learn through carefully enhanced and planned play, with different exciting and engaging activities each week. The children are also given the opportunity to learn, explore and play freely indoors or outdoors. During the Reception year the children will become more independent learners, they will build friendships and their little characters will evolve and blossom.

 

Autumn term

A big welcome back after a lovely summer. This term we are going to be very busy! We will be learning about the following topics;

Ourselves

In this topic the children will learn all about themselves and what makes them special. We will be reading the story of Elmer and finding out why he is so special and different. In RE we will be finding out why our names are so special and why we are precious to God.
We will have lots of opportunities to practise writing our names in paint, chalk, crayons and sand.

Autumn

Exploring colours and painting with leaves and conkers.

We will be creating a woodland with lots of Autumn treasures in our role play area.
