Welcome to Reception

We have enjoyed welcoming our new Reception class this half term. Please see below a short virtual tour of our new classroom.

Our current topic is...

Do you want to be friends?

This half term the children have been settling in and exploring their new environment. They have been learning how to be a good friend and trying new things. 

At the beginning of our topic we had some visitors. Buzz, Woody and friends wanted to come and show the children how to be a 'good' friend. The children enjoyed learning the words to 'You've got a friend in me' and creating new adventures for Woody and Buzz.

The children also linked maths and writing by helping Mr Potato Head put himself back together.

We have read and explored the book 'Dogger'. Watch and listen to the modern classic story written by Shirley Hughes.

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.

The children independently add their Dojo point to their monster using an iPad.

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.


Every day the children receive high quality phonics teaching adapted to their current attainment.

Currently we are learning set 1 sounds.

You can find out more information about the programme as well as access free ebooks on the Oxford Owl website.
