Welcome to Reception




Traditional Tales

We have been learning about Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Three Little Pigs in Reception.

Our role play areas are now the Three Bears house and The Three Pigs Construction Area where we have been enjoying retelling the stories. Take a look at our most recent learning including making and tasting porridge, adding and taking away using the bears and a whole lot more!














Even Peggy got a new home !!







Percy The Park Keeper

We have been learning all about Percy and his friends in Reception and we read the story 'After the Storm' by Nick Butterworth. The next day we came in to school to find that a storm had made a mess of our outdoor learning area! The children were fabulous in cleaning and tidying and we had it back to normal in no time. Well done Reception!





After we had tidied we enjoyed building a stage with wooden blocks and even made some lovely wind dancers!


Inside we have been busy building homes new homes for Percy's friends after the storm hit.

This week we have been measuring a selection of objects around Reception and have been using the language 'taller/tallest and shorter/shortest'.

Here are some of the children having a competition and seeing who can build the tallest tower:


Settling In

The children have settled so well into Reception and we have been extremely busy this term! Some of our learning so far includes how to stay healthy, repeated patterns, 2D shapes and Celebrations with Bonfire Night and Diwali. We have also been on a walk around the school grounds, both inside and outside to look at changes in the weather and going on a shape hunt! We have been learning both indoors and outdoors; please take a look at some of our learning below. We hope you enjoy it!

Our Autumn Walk

Some wonderful repeated patterns!


A huge and scary T-Rex

We enjoy reading both fiction and non-fiction books. This one is called 'Things that move.'


Ordering numbers to 10! smiley

   We love using the large wooden blocks as a base for role play. Today they were used to make a bed!


A very warm welcome to all the children and parents in Reception. We hope the children will have a truly wonderful learning experience in Reception and that parents and carers will embrace both supporting and sharing their child's journey in the Early Years.

We are very much looking forward to working with you and your children.

Best wishes
