Welcome to Eric Carle Class

Class Teacher: Mrs Preston

Teaching Assistant: Miss Lockley


Welcome to Reception

Please see below a short virtual tour of our new classroom.

Our current topic is...
Dinosaur Detectives

During this topic children will explore the past by looking at their own timeline and then the timeline of dinosaurs. They will research important people from the past and use new vocabulary linked to dinosaurs. They will investigate different animals that roam the planet now and in the past. They will develop their knowledge of rhyme and play games to support their understanding. They will gain a first-hand experience of the change in seasons and important celebrations.

Scrub the Bear is our class learning mascot. He sets the children challenges to complete each week. 

When the children have completed a challenge they earn a monster stamp.


Healthy Snack Time

The children have been introduced to lots of different healthy foods during our daily snack time. They help the adults prepare the snack each day.

Outdoor Learning

We have been very lucky to have had a wellington boot stand designed and made for the children. It has come in very handy during the recent rainy days and the children enjoy using it and looking at the different pictures on it.
