Welcome to Reception! We hope you have had an exciting and enjoyable Christmas!
In Reception we are active learners and over the spring term we will continue to support your children with the daily routine and their learning. The children will continue to be given many opportunities to develop their critical thinking, explore their own skills and actively learn.
Within literacy the children will develop their phoneme, word and sentence construction and develop their letter formation. In Mathematics they will develop their number recognition skills, ability to count accurately and solve practical number problems alongside forming the numbers correctly. Our topic will focus on learning about ‘People Who Help Us’ and developing our communication, understanding, exploration and design skills through a range of activities such as role play, art skill development and discussion time.
Your child will be taught through a mixture of teacher led, teacher guided and child initiated learning, both indoors and outdoors.
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 take place on both a Monday and Friday so their PE kit will be kept in school. We will 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, I will be available at the classroom doors at 8:30am and end of school 3:00pm.
We are looking forward to an exciting 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.

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.
