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!

Stay and Learn Phonics

Reception parents & carers were invitied to join us for a phonics lesson.

The children worked in groups blending sounds, finding pictures starting with 'l' or using sand and glue to from the 'l' formation.

Our parents were all very proud of their hard work.

So Much

Mrs Brett-Smith asked Kyrah's mum from Year 1 to come and talk about babies, so she brought in baby Karis.

Reception thought about the questions they would like to ask Kryah's mum;

"Does Karis eat food ?"

"Is Karis sick sometimes ?"

They learnt lots about what a baby needs.
