Welcome to Reception

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

Our current topic is...

Why do zebras have stripes?

Our new topic this half term explores the stunning continent of Africa and the animals that live there. We have lots of exciting visits, workshops and events happening during this topic.

Indian Stick Insects

We welcomed three Indian stick insects to our class. We really enjoyed handling and drawing them. We even got to name them: Shiny, Cupcake and Bob.

Packington Farm

We visited Packington Free Range farm in Barton. We enjoyed meeting lambs, sheep and pigs. We also looked for frogs, built dens and learnt about the crops and wildlife on the farm.

Scrub the Bear

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 Dojo monster point.


Healthy Snack Time

The children have been introduced to lots of different healthy foods during our daily snack time. They take an active role in helping to design a weekly menu and support 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.
