Welcome to Reception!


It is great to be back at school.
We have also been joined by four lovely children Mia, Millie, Molly and Owen.
We made face biscuits in our first week.



All About Me

We have found out about ourselves. We have talked about what makes us happy and sad and started using our Feelings Board.

We made skeletons, learnt the names of some of the bones and how they help us.

We also had a visit from the School Nurses. They showed us how we can keep ourselves healthy. It was great fun measuring our height and weight, listening to our hearts with a stethoscope and bandaging our broken bones.                              


MacMillan Coffee Morning

What a good morning.

Reception sang two songs for their families -Incy Wincy Spider and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

We held a Raffle and Name the Bear Competition.

We ate lots of scrumptious cakes and biscuits and drank juice.  But most importantly we raised over £230 for the Macmillan Nurses and the wonderful work they do.

Thank you to everyone who came. 



We have looked at pets, the names of their offspring, how to take care of them and where they like to sleep.

We had great fun when Mrs Snowball brought Dylan the Dog into our class.

We found out what toys he plays with, where he likes to go for a walk, what he likes to eat, that he visits the vet when he is poorly and how to keep his fur shiny and clean.   


Reading Workshop

It was really good to see so many parents and grandparents at the Reading Workshop.

We hope you found the information shared useful. Please ask a member of staff if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you at the next workshop. 


We have enjoyed investigating all of the changes seen in Autumn.

We explored the outdoors and with the help of Jill from the RSPB discovered lots using all our senses. We liked the smell of the lavender and rosemary best.

We used all of the objects we collected to make pictures and patterns in the class. 

We read lots of stories about Percy the Park Keeper and his work in Autumn. We made a Chatter Box Bin to help us retell the story in class with our friends.



Rhyme Challenge

Rhyme Challenge has gone really well. We have practiced and said all of our 10 rhymes.

We performed to the school in Friday's House Assembly. Mrs Emmerson presented us with a certificate.

We have also celebrated Halloween, making pumpkin pancakes. Yummy.

We celebrated Bonfire Night by making cinder toffee. Scrummy.

We also programmed the Rocket Bee Bots to move between stars, planets and the sun. We can move the Bee Bot forwards, backwards and turn to the side.


 Pudsey Bear Day

We had great fun on Pudsey Bear Day. We spent the morning with Year 6 in the school hall. They had arranged a Penny Fair to raise money for the charity. There were lots of activities as well as cakes to buy. 

In the afternoon Pudsey Bear visited our school. He told us about his busy day and taught us his dance. We all had a try, we were very good, Pudsey gave us a thumbs up.

After it was Pie the Teacher time.  Mrs Emmerson, Mr Longstaff, Mr Proctor and Mr Sadler were all "pied" along with Mrs Dimmock and Miss Robinson from our class. 




We have explored toys and their characteristics. We told our friends what our favourite toy is.

We have compared toys from the past and from today and were able to say what the similarities and differences are which we would like to play with.

We have made our own Teddy Bear Plates by ourselves.  We also wrote a letter to Santa Claus to let him know which toys we like. 



Christmas Production

We performed Shine Star Shine for all of our families and friends. We were really proud as we sang our songs beautifully, said our words clearly, acted our parts and danced superbly. 




Christmas has been lots of fun.                                                                                                              We had a great party. We played lots of games, Pass the Parcel, Stations, Musical Statues and The Farmers in his Den.  This was followed by a delicious party tea, sandwiches, crisps, cakes, biscuits, marshmallow dips and juice. Then as we sang songs round the Christmas tree Santa Claus arrived ! He brought a present for everyone.                                We had a Cinema Morning with Nursery, Class 1 and Class 2. We watched the Father Christmas movie. Lots of giggles.                                                                                                               We are going to the Pantomime on Friday. Ending 2017 on a high note.
