Welcome to Reception
You can find out more about our learning by visiting the curriculum section of our website.
Ronnie and Rosie
The children in Reception have been introduced to their new friends ‘Ronnie and Rosie’. The mascots love going home to spend the weekend with the children. Tuesday’s are very exciting in Reception because everyone gets to hear about the fun and exciting things Ronnie and Rosie have taken part in during the weekend.
Smiles for our first day at school
We love art in Reception and this week we painted self-portraits! We each used a mirror and looked carefully to identify the different parts of our faces that we needed to paint.
We are very lucky at Copeland Road Primary School to have our very own apple and pear trees. Today we were so excited to pick the fruit from the trees! We also took out our clipboards so that we could do some observational drawing. When we ate the apples we were amazed at how juicy they were! The pears were delicious too!
One of the children brought in a pizza menu today and enjoyed asking her friends “what are you ordering?” The children were excited about eating pizza during registration – “the pizza is hot” and the “pepperoni is tasty”. Reception also worked together to change the home corner into “a pizza kitchen”.
Child-initiated experiences can allow lots of learning to take place and can help build children’s self-confidence. All the children were engaged and we all enjoyed our morning!
Each week we get to spend time in the Library. We love finding our favourite books and discovering new ones, especially the big non-fiction books! We also get to choose a book to take home, it is lots of fun!
In Reception we are very lucky… we get to have a Year 6 Buddy! Our buddies are very kind and they help us feel happy and safe at school. They help us make new friends too! Each week our buddies come to visit us; they read us stories and play with us. Thank you buddies for all you do!
We really enjoyed our walk today… the leaves were crunching, the trees were rustling and conkers covered the field. We filled our pockets with conkers of all shapes and sizes and we were amazed by the vibrant colours of the leaves.
At Copeland Road Primary School we have a safe and engaging outdoor area for the children to explore. The children enjoy digging, mixing and testing out their ideas. The children also have the opportunity to use their imagination for story telling activities. Today we were pirates “trying to find the treasure!”
