‘A pathway to grow, be curious and discover’

Reception

Welcome to Reception.

 

Welcome to Reception. We are all very happy four and five year olds who have settled into school very quickly and are loving learning through play. We have lots of fun with our teachers Mrs Manly, Mrs Bohoran, Miss Smith, Miss Watts, and Miss McCreadie. We have been very busy learning new rules and routines and getting to know all the different areas within our indoor and outdoor classroom.

We find it easier to learn through exciting topics. This term we are thinking about “Animals” and “Toys”. Our teachers are very proud of us because we are planning our own learning and asking so many interesting and thoughtful questions.

Every morning we come into school keen and eager to learn and are soon very busy with lots of different activities. Every day we have a phonics lesson where we are learning the sounds and letter names of the alphabet. We often play games and sing songs to help us with our reading and writing. We also are very busy recognising numbers, learning the names of shapes and how to make exciting repeating patterns.

Reception are very lucky to have a lovely big outdoor area where we love to climb, explore and play with balls, ropes and balancing equipment. You are always very welcome to talk to the adults in the setting to find out how we are progressing with our learning.

Below we will share our exciting news, photographs and our learning, so please keep checking this web page to find out what we have been doing.
