In Reception, our day is divided into Child Initiated time (Plan, Do and Review) and Teacher Directed time.

 During Plan, Do and Review we have opportunities to embed the learning that takes place during Teacher Directed time , explore our current interests and create our own challenges. We also love to inspire each other!




Teacher directed time is initiated by teacher and led by an adult. We have daily phonics, daily number time and we build on topics that interest the children or that are topical.


Term 4



 During Curriculum week we discovered a mystery car that had crashed into the mound! We investigated where it had come from!




A few days later a fairy door appeared in our classrooms! We had a letter from Rosie and William (the trainee wizards) who had created a flying spell but made a car fly instead of their broomsticks. They really needed our help to create a flying potion!









We ended the week by writing some fantastic letters to Rosie and William telling them all about the exciting things we had done to help them! We made sure we shrunk the letters so they would fit through the fairy door.

Term 3


This term our topic is 'Up, Down Round and Round' we have already enjoyed exploring how different things move and investigating our new role play areas!



















 In literacy we have read the story "The Blue Balloon" and in response have released our own balloons! We used our imagination to think about where our balloon has travelled to.


The Balloon has flew up to space. It will land on Jupiter and the Aliens will find it. They are going to fill it with magic and send it back to us!

"It has flown to London, over Big Ben and it will visit the Queen!"


We have enjoyed learning about space and designing our own Aliens. Take a look below at their names!



Term 2

Our Term 2 topic is 'Colour My World.'  We have created beautiful bonfire paintings and used our noticing skills to describe bonfires and fireworks. We have enjoyed looking around our environment and spotting different colours! 



Term 1

Our topic this term is 'This Is Me, I Am Special.' We have had lots of fun exploring our different senses. We have used our listening ears on our listening walks and have made feely boxes. We are looking forward to exploring our sense of smell and taste next!



Cook, Victoria and Wren Class have enjoyed exploring the School grounds on our first 'Welly Walk.' We have explored the new climbing frame, roasted marshmallows by the campfire and made our own music!
