We love God, We love learning, We love each other


Welcome to our Reception Class page, where we love to learn through play!

The teachers in Reception are Miss Bain, Mrs Hollick, Miss Wallis and Mrs McMillan (PPA cover).


This half term our new topic is Spring is in the air!


During this half term we will be learning all about spring and the changes we see in the world around us. We will look at how the seasons have changed and learn about the lifecycles of plants and animals. We will also be learning about minibeasts! We will go on a bug hunt and look at the different habitats minibeasts like to live in. We will also learn lots of interesting facts about minibeasts and look at their special features. We are also very excited to welcome some very special visitors into class this half term to help us with our learning. We will have the opportunity to observe creepy, crawly caterpillars and watch them as they transform into butterflies and take care of fluffy chicks!!!


In RE will learn about the special events of the Ascension when Jesus went to heaven to be with his Father and look at other signs of new life in the world around us.


PE will continue to take place on Thursday this year so please ensure your child has their kit in school with their name clearly marked.


This half term we will continue to send additional activities home for Reception children to support the learning they are doing in school that week. Activities will go home in book bags on a Friday. Please look at our Medium term plan for more information on the learning objectives your child will be continuing to work on this half term.


If you are unsure of anything at any time or wish to see us about anything concerning your child please do not hesitate to come and speak to us. Thank you for your continued support.


Many Thanks


Miss Bain & the EYFS Team
