Welcome to Reception


Our theme this term is ‘All about Me’

We will be discovering what makes us feel special and unique and finding out all about our homes, friends and families. Over the coming weeks we will ask you to send us a photo of your family for your child to share with their class and to create a class display celebrating our families.

We will send out more details about this at a later date. 

Art work will also be inspired by festivals and stimuli around us, such as Bonfire Night, Diwali, Hanukkah, Christmas and the Nativity and the changing seasons. 

Music and movement play a key role in developing the children’s creativity and well-being alongside their fine motor skills. Throughout the term, children in the Early Years Foundation Stage will be singing a variety of songs and rhymes with actions and dances. Our soft start to the school day will focus on developing fine motor skills and we will provide daily opportunities develop the children’s gross motor skills.

Meet Pantosaurus - our pant-wearing Dino! He wants every child to stay safe and strong, just like him, and he's on a mission to share an important message.
