Welcome to Reception

A very warm welcome to Reception.

Reception is a really important and exciting year where the children develop skills that will hopefully stay with them for the rest of their time in school and beyond.  We support them to become independent learners through encouraging their own ideas and curiosity about the world around them. We go on an incredible journey together in learning to read and write and develop the building blocks of mathematics. We plan topics throughout the year that emphasise different areas of the curriculum.

All children in Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework that is divided into the seven areas of learning. They have a mixture of adult led activities and child initiated learning, where the children learn by doing things for themselves.

We work together with parents to ensure all children are, ‘Growing and learning together, as part of God’s family, to be the best that we can be.’

Nursery Spring Term learning -2020

During the spring term we have enjoyed looking into winter. Nursery children have learnt what clothes we wear and why.  We also talked about what our weather is like now and how it might be. Nursery children have enjoyed exploring and experimenting with ice - what it feels like and the different ways we can make ice melt. The Nursery children enjoyed learning about the Arctic and Antarctica, and finding out which animals live in the North and South Pole.
In phonics we have focussed on listening skills from Letters and Sounds.

In maths we have continued learning essentials foundations for counting, focussing on representing numbers using fingers and a everyday items, as well as using maths in everyday play.

In RE we have been learning about Jesus growing up and the different ways he helped people.
