Spruce class is taught by Mrs Robinson and Mrs Hanham. Crab Apple Class is taught by Miss O’Rourke and Mrs Keen. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Sende and Mrs Whiting.
In Reception we follow the Revised Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, learning through play. We have lots of lovely resources in our classroom and outdoor area so we are always busy learning and playing together.
During the year we will be learning through lots of fun and play and we will be covering the following topics; Ourselves, Festivals, Christmas, Seasons, Easter, Animals and Stories.
We enjoy learning in our classrooms and also using our outside area – so please make sure children always have suitable clothing in school.
If any parents or grandparents have any spare time and feel that they could come and help us in our classroom it would be much appreciated. We love having people in to help and join in all the activities that we do in Reception.
Please see the class teachers if you can help in any way.
The Morgans' Mile
Our trip to Willows Farm
We had a great day at Willows Farm. It started with an exciting ride on a double decker coach. We learnt about different farm animals, looking at them and listening well to our guide. We even got a chance to hold and stroke a Guinea pig, comparing it to the other animals in the barn. We all enjoyed a very bumpy ride in a trailer that was being pulled by a tractor through very muddy puddles. We loved watching a sheepdog herding ducks around an obstacle course, especially when they went down a slide! We were able to feed some of the animals with special animal feed, using the flat palm of our hands. We also watched a sheep race, and cheered on the sheep that was our favourite number.
The Jolly Postman
We have been reading 'The Jolly Postman' this week, so everybody wrote a letter, and we walked to the local post box to post it home.
We have been using the language of money all week. Everybody has brought in a purse, and been given 'pocket money' to use to pay for any activity that they want to do during Explore and Learn time. We have been committed to keeping our purses safe, and we have use craftsmanship to make sure that we have paid exactly the right amount of money for everything.
We love welly walks in Reception!
Here, we are finding keys to open secret doors in trees.
Maths and PE
In maths, we were learning about time. We communicated with each other, by using an iPad to time one minute activities in PE.
