In Reception, we cultivate a love of learning for life. Our curriculum is planned to provide balanced and relevant experiences for each individual child. We are passionate about outdoor learning and problem solving. It is important that our children feel safe to be risk takers as they approach their learning during the day.

Our teachers encourage us to challenge ourselves once we have built confidence in newly taught skills. We are then encouraged to use these skills in our free play to extend and consolidate our learning.

Each week we have new 'Rainbow Challenges,' with activities we need to complete independently. They support our physical development, phonics, writing and mathematical development. Our progress and work is recorded in a number of ways such as in our writing books, ‘Our Learning Journey’ scrap book and ‘Seesaw’.

Early Years is extremely busy and fantastic fun. Keep up to date with us by following our blog.

The Reception team is

  • R Hepworth – Mrs Wise, Mrs Summers and Miss Love
  • R Van Gogh – Miss Valentine and Mrs Quinn
  • R Kandinsky – Mrs Coleman, Mrs Spina and Mrs Dempsey

We are lucky to be supported by our HLTA, Miss Gill.

Our P.E day is Friday morning. May we remind you to ensure that all your child’s kit is clearly labelled.

Please make sure that you bring your library book to school each Friday to be changed.


3D Shapes

This week we have been exploring 3D shapes in our maths sessions. We have been introduced to the 3D shape names cube, cuboid, pyramid, prism, sphere, hemisphere and cone and have explored their properties.

In the creative area we have been learning about the 3D shape faces by printing. We were excited to see that they made familiar 2D shapes!

Meanwhile in the construction area we have been busy builders, building towers for Rapunzel, learning about the 3D shapes that can stack best due to their curved and flat faces. Some of our towers got very tall and we found that the hemisphere and pyramids made perfect turrets at the top of the towers due to their rounded faces and pointed corners.

Some of us had great fun exploring which 3D shape was the best to roll to knock down our towers as well!
