Welcome to Reception Class


Mrs Arthur and Mrs Goodall


We have all been incredibly busy making new friends, exploring our new school and learning new routines.


We've had lots of fun together so far!

We've been learning the Phase 2 sounds and how to blend them together to help us read. We've also been segmenting the sounds to help us write CVC words.

In Maths we've been counting, ordering, subitising and exploring numbers to 5.

Every Monday we go to the forest to explore the world around us.

We've been exploring colour and texture too!

In PE we've been throwing, catching and moving in different ways.

Welcome to your first year at school!


We are all having fun together playing, exploring and learning new things.

Take a look at some of the things we have been doing so far this term!




Exploring our new school!

We've been learning letter sounds and how to read and write them.

Exploring colour and the artist Kandinsky!

At school we work hard to keep fit and healthy. Each week we use the timber trail and take part in yoga sessions to build our core strength!

Every Monday (whatever the weather!) we walk to the forest to explore, investigate, play and create.

St. Giles Church. We went for a walk to Church to explore this beautiful building. We were amazed by the gorgeous stained glass windows.

Diwali - We loved learning all about Diwali with an amazing workshop; it was a feast for the senses! When we got back to classroom we made models of Rama and Sita and acted out the story.

Fun in Phonics! We have been working so hard, blending, reading and writing new words.

In Maths we have been counting, sorting, doubling and partitioning. We have also discovered lots about the number 10!

Space! We have been learning all about space. We blasted off with Tim Peake and discovered how craters are formed. We have been amazing everyone with our new knowledge!

The Lost Sparkles of Christmas. We performed with Year 1 and Year 2 in this years Christmas Nativity. We were amazing!

We've been getting ready for Christmas! We decorated the classroom and have made some lovely decorations to take home.

We went to Smart Trees with Year 1. It was very muddy but that didn't stop us from having a fantastic time!

We have been learning about snow and ice. We painted using cold colours, explored ice using our senses and used an atlas and Google Earth to find out about the Polar regions.

We were concerned about the bush fires in Australia that some of us saw on the news at home. We decided to raise some money to help and so we baked Anzac biscuits to sell. We raised over £100 and sponsored a Koala with the WWF - we are now officially Koala Protectors!

After learning about Koalas we decided to open a vets in the role play. We learnt how to look after different animals from cats and dogs to lions and tigers!
