Reception

Welcome 

Welcome to Reception class’ page. Our Reception class has 21 pupils and is led by myself; Miss Davies. We are extremely lucky to have four teaching assistants supporting at different times of the week. The teaching assistants are; Mrs Prince, Miss Edwards, Mrs Kosinski, and Mrs Sales. 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.

 

Spring term

I hope you all had a very enjoyable Christmas, it is lovely to see all of the children back at school and full of energy. This term we are going to be very busy! We will be learning about the following topics;

Amazing animals

In this topic the children will learn all about different types of pets and how to care for them. We will talk about the special charities that help pets and share why our own pets are so special.

We will also be exploring animals that live in the rainforest, learning about why we need to look after the earth and all its wonderful creatures.

Within our classroom we will have a rainforest explorers den in our role play area.
