We are a 60 place Reception unit split into 2 classes Reception A and Reception B.
The teacher in Reception A is Mrs Metcalfe and the teacher in Reception B is Mrs Barnes, Mrs Reed and Mrs Thomas are the teaching assistants for reception. Mrs G Dickinson and Mrs Larkin are also in reception supporting children who need a little extra help.
We follow the EYFS curriculum , which is a play based curriculum. Play and exploration is fundamental to our classroom allowing children to learn by first hand experiences. Our classroom is full of artists, scientists, architects, mathematicians and sport stars.
On this page we will be detailing and celebrating our learning with you and we cannot wait to share it all with you throughout the year.
PE is on a Thursday.
Reading books need to come into school on a Monday and a Thursday where they will be changed.
To get a point on the reading championship a child needs to read and for this to be recorded at least 3 days a week. We work our way through Bronze, Silver and Gold reading championships. The reward for completing any championship is a star badge.
Summer 1 Learning.
This half term we are talking about 'minibeasts'. We started this by looking at the hungry caterpillar and what he liked to eat, this helped us have an initial understanding of the life-cycle of a butterfly. We were amazed when the 'Hungry Caterpillar' visited our classroom and left a trail of clues.
He also loved our classroom that much he sent us our own caterpillars to look after!
We have learned new words in our explorations of caterpillars and butterflies including chrysalis, symmetrical and metamorphosis!
We have been creating fact-files about butterflies and caterpillars using the research we found out, we are going to use a similar model to find out about other minibeasts and cannot wait to tell you are about our learning!
Once upon a time - Summer 2
Summer 2 has started with adventures of a Giant and a small boy called Jack!
We found a giant shoe in our class, turns out it belonged to a Giant who came to visit us leaving his cuddly toy, belt, pen, mug, glass, sunglasses and even his toothbrush in our school grounds - what a lovely hunt we had!
After we explored the story of Jack and the Beanstalk we found jack stuck in our ceiling, we managed to free him only for him to be locked in a cage!
Don't worry we managed to find the key! He sent us beans as a thank you, I wonder if they are magic!
We cannot wait to see where our adventures take us next!
