Welcome to Reception

Our curriculum is designed to be creative and inspiring, full of memorable experiences that allows children's natural creativity and curiosity to flourish, alongside the purposeful acquisition of skills and knowledge. Children are offered a wide range of experiences that broadens their understanding and equips them with the skills needed to be confident, independent, lifelong learners.

If you go down to the woods today......
This half term our topic has been 'If you go down to the woods today'. We started by going on a bear hunt and then created our own animal hunts. We have enjoyed reading lots of bear stories, including 'Bear snores on' and 'Can't you sleep Little Bear'. We have acted these stories out in our bear cave and also adapted the stories in our play. To finish our topic we invited our teddy bears into school for a teddy bear's picnic. 
Visit to St Michael's church
This week, as part of our Celebration topic, we have been on a visit to St Michael's church. We really enjoyed looking around the church and then used what we had learnt back in the classroom. 
Multicultural day
For multicultural day we learnt about China. We painted dragons with our hands and made dancing dragons. We watched dragon dancing and then had a go ourselves. We made dragon masks and even built the 'Great Wall of China!' We practiced using chopsticks too!
