In reception we learn creatively and practically in our indoor and outdoor classrooms. We do a lot of experiential learning that relates to our different topics. However, as time progresses we adopt a more structured approach to learning with the introduction of daily phonics, Big Maths and Guided reading etc.
Our P.E lessons are on...
Our spelling tests are on a Friday.

Well, last week there were trespassers on the railway line and on our second attempt we actually stood on the train but it was delayed because a lady was poorly and had to wait for an ambulance to come and take care of her. Third time lucky on Monday afternoon. The final group managed to have their train ride to Atherstone. The weather was good and they really enjoyed their trip.
This week we had the lovely experience of travelling on a train. We went in the minibus to the train station in Nuneaton and then travelled by train to Atherstone.

This week we have been to the top of the road to count and tally the traffic. We saw lots of cars, lorries, bikes, motorbikes and even a police car and an ambulance!
This new term we are looking at transport. We began this topic with a walk to see the traffic on the main road and the barges on the canal at the marina.
We hope you enjoyed our Christmas play-"Whoopsy Daisy Angel"
We certainly had fun presenting it to you all.
The families came to join us for a Christmas family fun day. They joined in activities to make Christmas decorations, Christmas chocolate puddings and tasting mulled 'wine' and mince pies.
Take a look at the fun that we had.

To continue our learning about Autumnal changes we went to Hartshill Hayes. We looked for the signs of Autumn and gathered resources for our display at school.
