We have been on a few welly walks. Here we are making leaf kebabs.


 Today we went to see Father Christmas at Emerson Park. He gave us a present and we had a drink. We sang him lots of songs which made him very happy! We had a lovely time.








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 the 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 1

Our topic this term is 'This Is Me, I Am Special.' We will be doing lots of fun activities to learn about ourselves, our senses and our new school environment, who our classes are named after and much more! We will spend a lot of time finding out about each other and learning to play happily alongside our new friends.
