Teacher: Miss Maddison
Teaching Assistants: Miss Gage, Miss Mitchell & Mrs Say
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!

Train Trip

We have been learning about transport in Reception, so Miss Brett-Smith decided we should go on a bus and train trip to experience the different forms of transport. But where should we go? Bexley park, of course!

Wearing our winter warm clothes and wellies, we set of.

On the train ride we looked out of the window hoping to see sheep, cows, hot air balloon and a tractor, just like the story called 'The Train Ride' that we have been reading in class.

We had lots of fun in Bexley park but decided to leave a bit early as we were starting to feel the cold. So back on the train and bus to head back to school for our lunch.

Transport Homework

Miss Brett-Smith asked Reception to produce a mini project for their homework based on transport.

Take a look at the photos to see the amazing creations they designed.
