All children in Reception will read on a Friday. Children will come home with Read Write Inc sounds to practice and learn at home each week. 


 PE Day 


PE day is on Friday. Please ensure children wear a suitable P.E. kit to school on Friday and make sure all jewellery is removed. Children will be taking part in physical activities indoors and outdoors so appropriate footwear is needed. 



We have a whole school reward scheme, the OSCARs. Every week one child from each class is chosen to receive an OSCAR in our special assembly on Friday. Their certificate is displayed in the junior hall for everybody to see how well they've done until the following week when they can take their certificate home.



Autumn Term

Our Autumn term topic is Dream Big Little One. The topic will be split into two half termly topics 'Amazing me' and 'Who helps me?' Learning will be based mainly on ourselves and those around us. A lot of the topic will focus on well being, friends and family as these are so important in the lives of our youngest learners.

This half term our new topic is "If you go down to the woods today" and will involve learning about forests, woodland animals, mini beasts, parks, trees, leaves and flowers, as well as having a teddy bear's picnic.



Spring Term


Some of us completed the Easter egg challenge. Here are the fabulous results.


Why do zebras have stripes? Where do lions live? We explore these questions and more in our new topic about Africa and the wild animals that live there.








We have been taking away by knocking down as many tins as we can then writing the number sentence on the chalkboard.



We talked about the similarities and differences between us then played some parachute games like “The sun shines on”.



We have been completing symmetrical pictures in Reception this week. We worked with a partner to draw our own symmetrical pictures of animals using ICT.




We took part in a whole school mosaic art project this week. We are very proud of our work. #CollaborativeArt


 We enjoyed listening to stories set in Africa.


We explored African drumming.

We used weaving techniques to make an African blanket in the style of the ones worn as shawls by the Maasai People in East Africa.



Autumn Term


Was the Big Bad Wolf really so bad? How many bowls of porridge did Goldilocks eat? Our magical topic "Will you read me a story?" will explore a wide range of books and hopefully develop children's love of reading.
