Welcome to Reception!


Here is our class page where you will find all of the lovely things we do in our classroom & outdoor environment.


The adults in our room are Mrs Clements, Miss Joles, Miss Belcher and Miss Wilson.

Here is our curriculum map with all the prime and specific areas of learning we will be covering in the Autumn. 



This week we have been started our new story ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’.

We have been ordering numbers to 5 and trying to recognise the recognise the numerals on the bears. We have also been using language for various sized bears: biggest, medium, smallest.


We have been developing our small motor skills by using our knives and forks correctly and practising our table manners. We had a great time eating the tasty beans on toast! 

We enjoyed making our bears and using a range of tools. The children used paper plates, paint, brushes, scissors and paper to create their masterpieces!



In Maths this week we had a tasty treat! 😋 The children tried really hard to recite to 20 and then lined up some delicious chocolate buttons ready to touch and count as they go. Of course, they were gobbled up after! 

We are beginning to learn our sounds in Phonics! The children are learning a new sound each day and showing great focus attempting to form the letters on their whiteboards. 



Our first week has been amazing! The children are venturing out into their new setting and interacting beautifully with their peers. 
We have been learning about our new routines and rules for school and enjoying lots of playing and settling in.
