Welcome to Reception
Find out what we will be learning about by viewing the Our Curriculum Map
This is the long term plan and Autumn term curriculum map for reception.
First day of school
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. Monday’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.
Reception having fun with their Year 6 Buddies
Reception have enjoyed spending time with their Year 6 Buddies this term. Each child in Reception is paired with a child from Class 6 when they join us at Copeland Road. The aim of the buddy system is encourage friendships and create an environment where the children in Reception can go to a familiar face on the playground. As you can see, Year 6 have also enjoyed spending time back down in their first classroom, with lots of fun activities!
Reception had lots of fun creating their very own rainbow!
The weather didn’t stop Reception spending some time outside this week. They were able to use lots of describing words to explain the changes they could see in the leaves and trees.
Art in the style of artist Jackson Pollock
The children in Reception had a fantastic afternoon outside in the Autumn sunshine. They recreated a large scale piece of art in the style of Jackson Pollock.
In Reception we love to explore and we enjoyed our autumn walk so much the first time we wanted to go again! We headed up to the school field and did lots of exploring. We found sticks, leaves and conkers of all different shapes and sizes. We also noticed the leaves were different colours because they change during the autumn season. We found red, yellow and orange leaves! Everything we found we took back into school with us and added them to our autumn table. We enjoy counting the conkers and comparing the sizes of the sticks!
This week we have been learning about 2D shapes; the names of 2D shapes and their properties. We have really enjoyed learning about these shapes and have used them to create a variety of pictures. We made alien worlds, rockets, double decker buses, trucks and ourselves all with 2D shapes!
We always look forward to Thursdays in Reception because we get to spend time with our buddies. Sometimes we go into our outside area and this week our buddies read our favourite stories to us!
Computing in Reception
The children in Reception had a busy afternoon working on the desktop computers. The children were able to use their name to log into their own computer.
Happy 1st of December day!
We have had a fun and festive afternoon in Reception this afternoon. We have decorated our classroom, put up our Christmas tree and listened to Christmas carols! We feel all ready for Christmas now and hopefully Dangle the elf will love our classroom too. He sent us a message telling us he is on his way from the North Pole.
