Welcome back after the Easter break. We hope that you all had an enjoyable holiday! This term we will be exploring the topic ‘growth’. We will use stories as a basis for our Literacy, Maths and Art and Design work, for example, growing our own beanstalks or sun flowers and measuring them. Our learning takes place through a mix of adult led and child initiated sessions indoors and outdoors. The children guide our learning wherever possible. Many activities are open-ended to allow the children to develop various ‘Characteristics of Effective Learning’.
For more details about our learning this term, please click on the Summer Term Curriculum Overview.
Please ensure your child brings their coat to school each day so they are suitably clothed for outdoor activities (wellingtons if wet weather), PE will continue to take place on a Thursday and a Friday therefore their PE kit will be kept in school. We send home PE kits at the end of each term.
We operate an open door policy, so please do not hesitate to speak to myself, Miss Biffin, if you have any questions or messages, I will be available at the classroom doors at 8:30am and end of school 3:00pm.
We are looking forward to a fun filled term of learning.
Reception Class Teacher
Class 7 and Reception had a fantastic day at Rays Farm on our school trip. We had a tour of the farm where the children learnt all about the different animals and how to look after them. They were allowed to feed some of the animals and had the opportunity to go in with the goats so they could stroke them. Whilst we were on our visit we were fortunate enough to see a baby goat minutes after it was born.
Following a nice picnic on the grass we went on an adventure into the woodlands where we explored the sculptures from different stories and nursery rhymes. We used these sculptures to retell the stories. The children had a brilliant day with lovely weather and learnt a lot about how the farm runs.
Look at the fantastic faces made using fruit and vegetables.
We have been celebrating bonfire night in Reception.
We made fireworks, sparklers, a Guy Fawkes and a bonfire. We even drew our own pictures and made paintings of fireworks in the night sky.
Making Diva lamps and Rangoli patterns for Diwali.
Reception had a lovely time celebrating Remembrance day. We pretended to be soldiers marching, we used pastels to create pictures of Flanders field and we designed medals for people we thought deserved them.
The children have been busy working on their phonic knowledge ready for early reading.
Reception have been on a shape hunt. They were fantastic shape detectives.
We have been making leaf loaves, ready for Welly Wednesday!
Reception have been enjoying dressing up in the role play area.
Oh no! What's going on here? The Big Bad Wolf has arrived with the police!

One of Wolverhampton's Lollipop Ladies volunteered to help show children in Reception and Year 1 how to cross the road safely. The children then took it in turns to show each other how to cross the road.
