Welcome to Reception!


Welcome to our Reception page! Below you can find some information about the things that we do in Reception each term. Our termly newsletters can also be found under Newsletters in the Parents section of the website.

Autumn Term 1 2018

This term our topic has been All About Me. We have been getting to know our new friends in Reception, sharing things that we like and learning some new things as well. During the term we have painted our own portraits, shared lots of songs and stories and we have even been on our own Bear Hunt! We also had lots of fun exploring the trim trail.

Autumn Term 2:

Out topic this term is Night and Day and we focused upon the story Night Monkey Day Monkey. We also learnt lots of facts about nocturnal animals, sang songs about animals and enjoyed listening to different animal rhymes. We also looked around our school for animal habitats and had fun exploring our outdoor area.

At Christmas time we all took part in our show 'Christmas Counts', decorated the classroom, made Christmas cards and even had a special visitor!

In Spring Term 3 our topic has been Traditional Tales and Nursery Rhymes...

We have enjoyed sharing lots of different stories and rhymes together. In particular we learnt the story of the Gingerbread Man- we re-told the story together, thought of our own endings and even made our own tasty gingerbread men to eat! We also went on our own races outside to see if we could be as fast as the Gingerbread Man!

We followed recipes for making Crispy cakes too- and really enjoyed eating them.


This term we also celebrated Chinese New Year with our own Dragon dance and had lots of fun re-telling the story of the Great Race.

In Spring Term 4 our Topic is Space...

We will be sharing space stories such as Aliens Love Underpants and Whatever Next.

This term we will also be looking forward to some exciting activities to celebrate World Book Day!
