Welcome to Reception!

With  Teachers: Mrs. Murphy and Mrs Courtney-Beard

 Teaching Assistants: Miss Harwood, Mrs. Ashby,

Mrs. Whitworth and Mrs. Fallon.


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 spelling tests are on a Friday. 


Do you have any ideas for this page? Why not let your teacher know!

World Book Day 2022! We were Aliens who love underpants. Can you spot them all?

Reading Pals! Please read us and help us to sleep at night! We come to you on a Friday and we need to come back to school on a Wednesday

Blast Off!!! Our new topic is all about Space!

We've been looking at the story of the Gingerbread man. We have ordered and read the story. To build our physical development, we made our own gingerbread people. We had to roll, cut and decorate our gingerbread people. Then we got to enjoy them while watching the story

Linking with our Jack and the Beanstalk- we have walked around Camp Hill to look at all the different types of house we can see.

Tell us a story! This term our topic is all about story telling and recalling nursery rhymes. We are starting off our topic by looking at the story of Jack and the Beanstalk

New Year New Area's New Topic

Weighing station- we’ve opened a new area where we can weigh lots of different objects and use the different weights. We have a variety of scales that we can use to discuss how to weigh different things and objects.

All Join In by Quentin Blake

We're starting a new book this week (22.11.21)
All Join In and we're going to be looking at rhyming words and why they rhyme with each other

Children in Need- For Children in Need we celebrated by wearing our pajamas to raise money. We spoke about what it is and how it helps others. We then created our own Pudsey bears, masks and cut out our own Pudsey ears.

Our Maths learning- We have been focussing on building and mastering our knowledge of the numbers 0-5. This includes subitising (recognising an amount without counting), making amounts using 5 frames and recognising the numerals for each of the numbers.

The Wonder- Faye Hanson

We have been looking at and reading this beautiful story about a boy who has an amazing imagination.
The children have used the story to create work about their imaginations and wonders, what they are proud about, like the boy at the end of the story.
We loved looking at and describing the amazing illustrations in the story, trying to find all the things in each of the boys' Wonders.

New School Year 2020/21

We invited the new Reception children in to meet the teachers and the TA's in the outdoor environment on Tuesday. This was a lovely opportunity for the children and their parents to get to know the staff, meet their friends and to have any questions answered before they start their half days on Wednesday. 

We hope you enjoy the photos showing us all having a great time. Please look at the slideshow to view the whole selection of photos.
