A Taste of Reception


Here are some photographs of us exploring in Reception...


Growth Mindset


We have introduced the children to the story Mabel and the Mountain and it has been thoroughly enjoyed. Mabel helps us to believe in ourselves and 'have a go'. Some of the children are now encouraging each other by saying "what would Mabel do" and "I want to be more like Mabel". 


We Will Remember

Messy Maths


We have been learning about number 5. We have represented this number with multilink this week. We carefully counted 5 blocks and changed the shape by rearranging the blocks. This messy fun provided us with lots of great mathematical discussions.

Chilli Challenges


We encourage the children to complete 3 chilli challenges each half term and we can't wait to celebrate them in class.

Keeping healthy


Here is the hand washing video that we have used to learn how to wash our hands properly. Remember, we need to wash our hands when we have used the toilet, before we eat and when we come into a new environment. 

WOW Vouchers


We are really interested in hearing anything that you and/or your child think is an achievement outside of school- things that make you smile with pride. Please print off vouchers from the link below and send them into us at school, so that this moment can be celebrated in class!




We use the Whiterose Maths mastery curriculum in Reception. This scheme of work was developed to build a new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths. 



We use the CBeebies Numberblocks to support our teaching of numbers.


Early Writing Skills

Please encourage your child to mark make using pens, pencils, paintbrushes etc. Part of the writing process is children ascribing meaning to marks and children gaining confidence with pencil control.
