Thanks for visiting our reception pages. Reception currently has two classes: Hazel Class and Cherry Class.
Welcome to our reception classes Cherry and Hazel. Our main topic this term is continuing with 'Why do squirrels hide their nuts?' As we move towards December there will be a focus on Christmas , we are already learning the songs that will be sung in the Christmas performance.
This term the children will be looking closely at changes in the environment, thinking about the seasons and investigating other environmental changes, such as decay. Some of the key vocabulary that will be introduced will be words such as 'hibernation, migration and nocturnal'.
Our PE focus is based on balls. The children will be exploring throwing, catching, rolling, kicking and hitting a variety of different balls and beanbags. We will continue to support the children towards independently changing for PE. Continuing to encourage this at home will really help your child too.
The children are encouraged to use their phonic knowledge throughout the day, writing labels and captions for their pictures, signs for role play and making story or information booklets.
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 success outcomes at the end of the Foundation Stage.
