Our Reception class is a busy, imaginative place, full of learning and fun! Every day we carry out adult led and child initiated activities and we move between inside and outside.

We are learning to be independent as well as how to make good relationships with others. We really enjoy our Phonics and Maths and we are all making great progress.

Our favourite is Forest school where we are learning about Nature as well as developing our cooperation, resilience and ability to solve problems and challenge ourselves.

We are great at coming to school every day and always make our teachers smile!

Reception @ Hall Place

Reception have been reading the book 'Owl Babies', so Mrs Brett-Smith took them to Hall Place to see the owls.

When we arrived, we went on a tour to see the different owls and to learn about what they eat and what sound they make. We were amazed to find out that quite a few owls do not hoot, they actually bark. Yes bark! How strange.

After our owl fun we went off to have a picnic and then play some games duck, duck goose. Obviously Mrs Brett-Smith didn't know any owl games.

Nursery & Reception Rhyme Challenge

Nursery & Reception have been very busy practising nursery rhymes

all week. Today, they got to show their grown-ups how clever they are.

It was Nursery vs Reception in a battle of the rhymes and both sides

were pretty impressive. Remembering to use loud clear voices and of

course remembering the words, they stepped up onto the stage and

delivered an exciting rendition of classic rhymes as well as more

modern. Each pupil received a certificate for their achievement.
