Diwali Celebrations in Reception

Today Reception have been learning about Diwali and how it is a celebration of light. The children listened to the story of Rama and Sita and created their own Rangoli patterns. They also learnt about how it is celebrated and compared it to other celebrations such as Bonfire night. 


Autumn Walk 

Today Reception went on an autumn walk around the school grounds. We collected baskets full of autumn objects such as leaves, conkers, pine cones, apples and sticks. The children talked about how the leaves sounded under their feet and the different colours they could see.



Grandparent's reading morning

On Friday it was our first reading morning. The children enjoyed sharing books with their friends and family members. Some children used the story sacks to retell traditional tales like The Three Billy Goat's Gruff. We would like to say thank you to the paretns and grandparents who attended this morning and hope you enjoyed it.



Reception Autumn Newsletter

Welcome to Rk's class page! We hope you all had a fantastic summer break and we are very pleased with how Reception are settling into their new school!

Already the children have been very busy and have taken part in lots of exciting learning. This term the children are focusing on the topic ` All about me`. All the children have painted their own self portraits using paint and have created their homes using 2D shapes. This work has made a brilliant display which can be found in our classroom. The children have also explored patterns and created their own repeating patterns using 2 or more colours. In Literacy the children have been practising their name writing and learning new sounds. Below are examples of the children's work.

Throughout the term the children will continue to learn about families, people who help us, how to look after our bodies and will also explore the season Autumn. Each week they will continue to learn new sounds to support them with the early stages of reading, which they will be practising writing using the Read, write inc rhymes. In Maths we will explore numbers and continue to match objects to the correct numeral.

Thank you for your support with your child's transition into Reception and we look forward to working in partnership with you! If you have any questions please speak to a member of the Reception team.





 Our visit to the Reflective Garden

Today Reception had the opportunity to visit the Reflective garden for the first time. We discussed the rules of how to use the garden and how it is a calm and quiet place to sit for reflection. During this visit, the children discussed our core value for this term `Respect` and how they show it within our school. Reception also listened to the story of `Noah's Ark` with year 1 and shared ideas on how to look after our world.
