Thanks for visiting our reception pages. Reception currently has two classes: Hazel Class and Cherry Class.
Welcome to our reception classes Cherry and Hazel.
For the first week of term we will be focusing on the whole school theme of training to be an astronaut. The children will be involved in a range of experiences that will help to pass their GEMS Astronaut Training Programme. They will be cracking codes, making helmets, creating space art, using alien language and training for a space walk, as well as getting involved in an astronaut fitness session and making something to get safely back to Earth during our parent workshop session.
Our topic in term 6 is 'Are we nearly there?', this will begin on Monday 11th June. If you have been out and about over the holidays or are planning a summer holiday please do talk to your child about what they have done or are going to do, it will really help them to take an active part in group discussions about the topic.
Where would you like to go? How would you travel there? These are some of the questions that we will be considering in our topic focused on transport, travel and places near and far.
Areas of focus will be:
How things move
Imaginary and real journeys
Inline with our current topic, our role play area is being transformed into a railway station, it was a suggestion from the children . We are looking forward to seeing the children express their creativity and continue to develop their language and communication skills whilst having lots of fun imaginative play in these areas.
As always, there will be daily phonic sessions and the children are encouraged to use their phonic knowledge and developing writing skills throughout the day, writing signs, labels, booklets, cards, instructions etc.
Our weekly and daily plan is heavily influenced by the lines of enquiry that the children are interested in pursuing, alongside the continuous assessment by staff, ensuring that every child is gaining the experience and skills that they need to ensure successful outcomes at the end of the Foundation Stage.
