Welcome to Reception!
With Teachers: Mrs. Murphy and Mrs Courtney-Beard
Teaching Assistants: Miss Harwood, Mrs. Ashby,
Mrs. Whitworth, Mrs. Fallon and Mrs. Hambridge.
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!
DIWALI IN RECEPTION
Today we learnt about Diwali, the Hindu festival of light.
The children took part in many different activities that celebrate this festival such as Mehndi patterns drawn on hands, food tasting, making divas out of clay and creating Rangoli patterns outside with chalks.
They listened to the story behind Diwali of Rama and Sita and enjoyed dancing to Indian music.
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.
