Spring 1 Week 2- My Special Place

Stars of the week: Belen and Krislyn

This half term in RE, Reception are looking at places which are special to them and special places for different religions. As a class, we have started a book all about our special places and why they are important to us. In our discussions, we had lots of different countries, places in our homes and religious buildings that are all special to us. Well done on some great RE work Reception.


Welcome back- Spring 1 Week 1

Stars of the week: Mas and Hudson

Reception have made an excellent start to the new year. This week in their maths sessions children have been looking at length and height and have been  using key vocabulary such as ‘taller’ and ‘shorter’. Children also measured the length of their feet and hands outside and compared it with their friends. Well done on a fantastic first week back Reception!

Autumn 2 Week 7 – Reception are true stars in their ‘First Nativity’

Stars of the Week: All of Reception

Reception, well done! You were wonderful in your ‘First Nativity’. It was so clear that you had put much hard work into learning your lines, speaking clearly and taking on different Nativity characters. We are very proud of you.

You also showed excellent behaviour and enthusiasm during ‘Stay and Play’, and were so welcoming to all your family who had kindly come along to do activities with you. Thank you to all parents and carers who came along to support Reception!

There are more Nativity specific photos on the ‘Other Media’ page, where the video also appears.



Autumn 2 Week 6 – Reception enjoy the spirit of Christmas!

Reception have had a wonderful week, enjoying many Christmas activities that we have linked to the curriculum. In English, the children have been writing to Father Christmas, using word banks and exciting Christmas templates. In maths, we have been counting baubles to go onto a Christmas tree and we have used our fine motor skills to thread the baubles. We are really relishing having a nativity scene in our role play corner. We also loved creating angels for our ‘Angels we have heard on high’ display, which is in the hall.

We are still working hard to rehearse for our Christmas Nativity Play taking place next week and cannot wait to show off our hard work.

Keep shining Reception!

Autumn 2 Week 5 – Reception rehearse The Nativity!

Stars of the Week: Sean and Krislyn

Well done Reception, you are doing such a wonderful job at rehearsing for The Nativity play. This week we have focussed on how to project our voices and use expression to show character. We have looked at different characters in The Nativity and shared our ideas on how we think they feel.

Reception are working so hard to learn their lines (well done again!), please continue to  help your child practise their lines and the songs at home. The Nativity will be performed at 9am in the school hall on Wednesday 12th December. Do let us know if you will be attending the ‘Stay and Play’ session after the Nativity, using the link that has been sent to you in the recent letter online.





Autumn 2 Week 3 – la recepción tuvo un gran día

Well done Reception. You were so enthusiastic and energetic during Spanish day. Excelente costumes from you all!

We all loved learning the Spanish alphabet, a maths song all about numbers and an exciting song about colours. Creating our own Spanish bunting, flamenco dancing and listening to a Spanish speaking storyteller were also extremely fun activities for us.

Well done Reception, another wonderful week of you all being shining stars!
