read to you.










Our Classrooms

We hope to offer the children an exciting and interesting environment to explore freely. We provide lots of collections of resources in baskets for the children to independently access. We aim to provide opportunities for children to explore their own ideas and learn through play with them being independent in their choices allowing child led inquiry to take place.

Outdoor Learning

We believe experiences outdoors are important for children's development and learning.

We provide the opportunity for children to explore through play in the outdoor environment which uses the space and nature that we have. We provide opportunities for developing skills in communication, reading, writing, maths and problem solving through outdoor learning.

There are a variety of resources available to the children which encourage risk taking and help support physical development such as large construction blocks, wooden planks and crates.

Our first half term in Reception


The children have had a busy time in Reception. All of the children have settled into their new environments and have established lots of new friendship groups.


This term we have been learning about Our Families, Pete the Cat and The Gingerbread Man and this week we are learning all about the changes in the weather during Autumn time. 


The Children have been very busy learning new graphemes during our daily phonics lessons and have been having a go at writing and applying their own phonic knowledge. 


The children have been developing their understanding of numbers 1-5. They enjoy watching Numberblocks to support their learning. These are educational programmes available to watch on BBC IPlayer. The children have also demonstrated they are able to subitise numbers. If you're not sure what this means ask the children to explain it, they are very good at explaining how they can subitise numbers.


 Reception have enjoyed the story 'The Gingerbread Man.' We have become very good at retelling the story, ask your child to share the story with the family. We have baked delicious gingerbread men.


We have described how we made them and we have drawn story maps to help us retell the story.

During October Reception have been looking at Black history and on Black history day on Friday we enjoyed listening to the story called I am enough. We discussed all the things we are good at and had a go drawing what we like to do. 

WB/ 23.10.23
This coming week the children in Reception will be listening to the story called Room on the Broom.
