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.

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 Friday. 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 school on Monday.
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.

On Wednesday and Thursday afternoon, RTM went to Nuneaton train station to get the train to Atherstone.

While we were waiting for our train another train came to our platform, it was very long!! The children then rode on the train to Atherstone, they were very excited to tell everyone what they could see out of the windows! We saw some very fast trains go past while we were waiting in Atherstone!
In Reception we celebrated Chinese New year. We learnt that this year was the year of the rat! The children watched the story of how the years would be decided between the animals and then re-enacted this outside. There were lots of different activities for the children to embrace Chinese New Year inlcuding; writing chinese numbers, retelling the story, practising using chopsticks, trying chinese food and making their own chinese dragon. Here are just a few of our photo's of us enjoying the day!
Have a look at the Art page on our website (link below) to see the amazing work we did in Reception and the rest of the school.
The children worked so hard together to produce a final piece based around a book that we all know and love to hear and read.
Every year group focused on different books.
RTM focused on Room on the Broom.
RSCB focused on the Gruffalo.
We had lots of fun producing this work and we hope that you enjoy seeing the pictures of us gradually creating our final class piece.
Our library visit. Reception were very lucky to have a trip to Nuneaton library. Whilst there the children were able to explore the children's section, browsing the books and finding cubby holes to snuggle up in, we were then very lucky to have a book brought to life and take part in re-telling a story we were all given at the beginning of the year.
