Welcome to Reception!


Term 5

We have another really exciting and busy term ahead of us.

How does your garden grow? We will definitely be trying to find the answer to that this term. Please CLICK HERE to take a quick look at our topic mine so you know what the children of Farah class are getting up includes an exciting trip to The Pig - more information will follow.

Term 3

We've had such an exciting term 3 so far! Our topic is CONSTRUCTION! Please see our topic web here.

The children have been busy constructing...



In literacy, we have been writing labels and sentences to describe different constructions. 

In maths, we have been ordering numbers and thinking about one more/one less. 

We have been doing ‘movement and dance’ in PE. The children have been using different movements to represent different shapes and animals in different parts of a story.



The Nativity

Reception and KS1 performed The Nativity at The Egg theatre in Bath


Week 5 - The week the dragon came...

At the end of last week, a mysterious dragon's egg appeared at school. This week, the children have been busy getting ready for our dragon baby shower which took place in Friday's Challenge Time.

The children made cards and dragon nest cakes.

The children also wrapped up and gave presents to mummy dragon.

We all enjoyed playing musical statues!


Week 4 - Harvest!

The children performed 'We're going on a picnic' beautifully for the school's Harvest Assembly. Well done everyone! Here they are in their harvest crowns. (28.09.17)
