Welcome to Reception's Page!

Leaf Hunt

Our Reception children have been learning all about Autumn and the changes that occur. After reading the book 'Leaf Man', we went on a leaf hunt in our outdoor area. Once we were back in class, we looked at our leaves and came up with different words to describe them. Next, we mixed red, yellow and black paint together to make different Autumn colours. We then painted one side of the leaves and printed them onto a leaf template, to make an Autumn coloured leaf.

Diwali Stay and Play

Our Reception children were delighted to invite their parents into our classroom today. Together they completed a range of Diwali themed activities, such as designing Mehndi patterns, making divas and writing cards. Lots of fun was had by all! Please look at our photographs to see what we got up to.

Autumn 2 - Seasons and Celebrations

This half-term we are learning all about Autumn and Winter and how our environment changes. We will also be  looking at different celebrations that people celebrate in Autumn and Winter. Please have a look out our overview and newsletter for ideas of how you can help your children at home.

Seasons and Celebrations


Today millions of glittery germs invaded our classroom and it was up to our new friend Nurse Samantha to help us get rid of them! She showed us how easily germs spread and how important it is to wash our hands properly! By working together to check each other’s hands for any glitter, we managed to rid ALL the germs by singing our song and using lots of soapy water. Now that we are certified germ police, we know how to keep the germs away, even when they’re invisible. Well done Reception for being super germ police!



We have been talking about what profession we want to go into in the future. Flick through the photographs to find out what we want to be when we are older. 


The children have made a brilliant start to Reception and they are enjoying our topic 'Marvellous Me'. Below is a copy of our 'Newsletter' and 'Medium Term Plan' for this half-term. This will tell you what we are learning about and will give you ideas as to how you can support your child at home. Please keep checking back for updates. We love to add photographs of your children enjoying learning!
