Welcome to the Reception page.

We are so excited for the year ahead with our new friends. We have welcomed new friends from lots of different nurseries as well as children from The Orchards Nursery.

During the first weeks of this half term, we will be settling the children into the routines and expectations of school. We will be supporting children to make friendships with others and develop good relationships with all adults. Working in Reception this year are Mrs Greenacre, Miss Newton, Mrs Urmston, Mrs Pitchers, Mrs Manion and Mrs Barlow. Most of all we will be showing our children that learning in Reception is lots of fun!

This half term our topic question is ‘Who am I?’ We are looking forward to getting to know the children and what it is that makes them special. In addition, we will be finding out about the children’s family, where they live, all about the body and growing up. Through this topic, we will be learning numeracy and literacy skills and the children will follow the Read Write Inc. programme.

This year we have a brand new allotment where will be growing our own fruit and vegetables. The children will plant, water, pick, eat and sell our own produce. So make sure you look and maybe buy some to take home for a small donation.

We will change reading books on a Tuesday and our PE day is on Monday.

If you have, any questions or concerns please speak to any of the adults and we will be more than happy to help or support you.

Do not forget to sign up to dojo to receive updates on what the Reception children are up to!

Thank you

The Reception Team
