Welcome to Reception

 

Both Nursery and Reception work closely together as a unit where we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We are able to access both indoor and outdoor environments and enjoy playing and learning together. We are currently settling into our new classes and routines of the day and making new friends in our setting.

As well as getting to know each other, we are finding out about all our interests and what things we enjoy doing in our mini topic – 'All about Me'.

We will continue through the year to look at broad themes and topics, including the seasons and celebrations, to name but a few. In these topics we will aim to follow the children’s interests and ideas, and this may lead us into other mini-topics so be sure to ask your child, and pop back to our page to see our most current learning.

Reception worked hard making cakes and biscuits for Children in Need. Some children designed their own posters and sold them on the day.

This term we have explored pattern using a variety of resources including natural Autumn materials.

We had a fantastic turnout for our Stay and Play in Early Years this term. We had a Maths day and all the parents got stuck in and interacted with all the different activities both indoors and outdoors

The children loved their trip to Acorn Farm this term. As well as meeting all  the farm animals, they met Father Christmas to tell him what they would like for Chirstmas. We had lots of fun!
