Welcome to Reception Class

Your children are very happy in their Reception classes and enjoy their learning.  They feel safe, secure and valued.  We are delighted with the progress the children are making since they joined us in September.

What the children have to say:

"like learning about the Autumn animals because they are really cute to see."

"I am learning to count and soon I will count so many things if I keep trying!"

"I like singing because singing makes you happy everyday."


All parents in Reception were invited to a workshop with a focus on Reading.

As part of a government scheme, all children in Reception receive a free book. The book this year was “The Bumblebear” by Nadia Shireen.

The workshop offered activities which were focused around the book. The activities were:
Reading area: Can you share your book with your adult?
Creative table: Can you make a paper plate bee?
Phonics table: Can you read the words?
Maths table: Can you estimate how many bees there are?
ICT area: Can you get the bee bot to cross the finish line?
Funky fingers table: Can you use the tweezers to put the pom poms on the flowers?
Construction area: Can you build a bee hive?
Playdough table: Can you make the wings and strips for the bee?
Colouring table: Can you colour the bee?

Parents were very complimentary of the workshop with one commenting she had loved coming - who knew you could do so many activities around a book!
