Welcome to the Reception Class 2021-22 with Miss Diplock, Ms Barnes-Weston, Mrs Dray & Mrs Minshull.
We look forward to seeing you soon for your home visits, and then for your first full day at Primary School on Monday 6th September 2021.
Here is a sneak peak from our first day at big school...
We hope you all had a wonderful day.
Here are the photos of us getting to know our Year 6 buddies.
During the first half of the term the children will talk about themselves and learn about each other during our topic ‘All About Me’. They will explore their new surroundings at school and the local environment. They will also begin to learn about characteristics and tools for effective learning.
Please see our slideshow below which is narrated by the teachers to tell you all about our curriculum this term in Reception.
There is also a pdf document provided of the slides.
During our 'All About Me' topic, we will theme each weeks learning and continuous provision.
At the beginning of term we asked each child to bring in an 'All About Me Bag' to help us introduce our topic. Each child had a turn to share three objects from home with the class.
It was great to see some bags that had been personalised and decorated by the child. I think we all found it very useful to learn more about each other. Here are a few examples...
We used the story 'The Three little Pigs' to help us theme our learning around 'Our Homes'.
We focused one of our weeks around the theme 'Birthdays'.
Here is our learning that was themed around 'Harvest' in preparation for the Harvest Festival at St. Andrews Church.
Last weeks learning was themed around the story 'Funnybones' (Janet and Allan Ahlberg) and focused on our bodies. Here is some of the learning that took place in our classroom.
Learning in our final week before half term will be focused on 'Pets'.
