Welcome to Reception! 

On this page we will let you know what your child is learning about in school and give you ideas for ways to help at home. We continue to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and if you want to know more about how and what your child will be learning click on this link: Parents guide to the EYFS


We hope the children enjoyed their first week back at school and were not too tired at the weekend! They have settled in superbly after the break and were keen to learn and complete challengessmiley


This week is 'Aspirations Week' and each class will be receiving different visitors to share information about their occupation.  In Reception we will be welcoming a midwife, toy shop manager, personal trainer and a professor of medieval literature! We are so excited to find out about their experiences and ask them lots of questions!

To support this we will be ...

  • Creating our own 'keep-fit' routines to music. We will discuss how important it is to take regualr exercise and practise combining different exercises.  The children can take the role of 'instructor' to motivate their friends.


  • Testing our eye-sight (and phonic knowledge) in our 'pop-up' Optician role-play. A range of play spectacles and sunglasses will be available for the children to peruse and wear before they test each others phonic knowledge.


  • 3D artists. The children will design and construct 3D art sculptures using a range of media and materials.  They will be given the opprtunity to assess their sculptures and time to make any adjustments to further improve their piece of art.


Maybe you could discuss different occupations at home with your child. What did you want to be when you were 4 or 5? Ask your child what they would like to do when they are an adult etc. There are some lovely video clips for children about different occupations online.


This week we will also be .....


  • Having a treat for filling our star jars! The children completed class pictograms to show their treat preferences and it has been decided that on Friday afternoon, they can play with a toy brought in from home and/or watch a film and eat popcorn!


  • Opening our 'Healthy Eating Cafe'. The children can read the menus, write orders, calculate payments and give change to each other.  We believe the food is going to be fantastic, so I think they may even need to pre-book!


Please can all children bring their reading books and diaries into school everyday!
