This week in Reception

4th July

Reception have had a fantastic ‘Inspired for Life’ week. We were excited to share our dreams for the future and then produced our own explorer bags linked to these. 

Thank you to all of our inspiring visitors. We had a great time listening to experiences and asking our own questions to find out more.


27th June

We have had a very busy week in Reception! In maths and literacy we have been linking our learning to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar and after weeks of taking care of our class caterpillars, we were able to set them free. Their beautiful patterns have inspired us to create our own butterfly prints. 


20th June

We are extremely proud of Reception for a fantastic assembly! The children were confident with their lines and all looked amazing. Thank you for making such an effort with their costumes.  Please see our photos below.                        


13th June

We have been busy practising for our special assembly (Tuesday 19th June at 9.30am). In maths we have been exploring addition and subtraction. For Literacy we are beginning to look at the story of 'We're Going on a Lion Hunt'. Our class caterpillars are starting to grow... we can't wait to see what happens next!

6th June

This week we have been exploring 'cultural diversity'. We learnt all about Ghana and even had some special visitors! These will be visiting the children's homes until the end of term. Thank you to those parents who have provided children with resources to share in class. 


23rd May

We have been very busy this week and have started rehearsals for our 'A Million Dreams' assembly. Parents and grandparents are invited to watch our assembly on Tuesday 19th June. Invitations and further information will follow shortly.

The children explored 'magic beans' to create their own number games and problems. We were really impressed with their creativeness.

In English we have been writing about The Royal Wedding. We explored costumes, researched The Royal Family and had great fun painting our own Union flags.



16th May

Following on from our learning about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, we have been using our imaginations to create our own innovated versions:  Minions have been climbing ladders and Rosie has been climbing a sunflower.

We have been exploring doubling and halving.  We needed to find a solution to sharing food between two people.  We discovered that there were different ways to cut a cucumber in half! We have been using play dough and a magic pot for doubling. 

We're excited to be preparing for The Royal Wedding!
