Learning in Reception is play based. Children will engage in a variety of different adult led, child initiated or adult initiated activities each day. For some parts of the day children will work together in the classrooms in small groups with adults, whilst at other parts of the day they will freely explore the carefully planned play environment.

Welcome to Term 2! 

This term we encourage awe and wonder by asking the question 'what are those light's in the sky?' Through a range of play based activities we will explore celebrations such as Bonfire Night, Diwali and Christmas. 


Please see the documents below for further information.

In Term 1 we asked the key questions:

'What makes me special?' and 'What's happening to the leaves on the trees?'


Through play we will got to know each other and explored how we have changed since being babies, our bodies, the importance of good oral health and how we can look after our teeth, our feelings, our family, autumn changes, Harvest and Halloween. We had so much fun in term 1 and we have been so impressed with how the children have settled into school life!
