Welcome to Reception, we are Mrs Acton (RP) and Mrs Ford (RG). We are very excited to be a part of your child's early learning journey. The work outlines on our class pages will be updated each half term and this will inform you about what your child will be learning in school.
Due to Covid-19 at the moment Reception staff will continue to collect your child from the nursery gate.

The children access the wildlife area once a week either on a Wednesday or a Thursday. Please ensure your child has a pair of wellies in school.
This half term we will be learning about animals and getting ourselves ready to move to year one. As part of this we will be reading a variety of different books including The dinosaur that pooped a planet and a variety of different dinosaur books, Mad about Minibeasts, books about birds, safari and sea animals.
Every Wednesday morning the children are also fortunate enough to be able to take part in a Drama Tots session. Drama Tots provides award-winning drama, music and imaginative play classes for children and combines music, movement and creative play. The children also use a fantastic range of props, puppets and instruments to bring the adventures to life.
For Maths we will be following the White Rose Maths Scheme and we will be learning about doubling, sharing, grouping, odd and even and be revising our number bonds.
In PE the children will continue to wear P.E kits. Please send in a named PE kit in a named bag for your child. This should include a t-shirt / shorts or joggers and pumps. The children will be preparing for sports day practising running, balancing a bean bag on head, egg and spoon, skipping with a hoop and sack races. The children will be working on their balance and co-ordination skills.
Please continue to support us by listening to your child read daily at home and sending in their reading books ready to be changed at school. For every 5 books that your child reads at home they will earn a certificate. Therefore could you please ensure that you sign your child's reading diary to indicate to us that they have read at home.
