We are all super excited to have you return to school. We have a mix of children who came to our nursery and new friends who have just joined us from other places, in time to start a fantastic year in reception.
We can’t wait for you to join us on our learning journey exploring our great outdoors and indoor environment where we will now all be using the whole of our reception area. Our areas of learning have been spread out to give you much more space to explore and learn.
As we are new to reception the first term is all about getting to you know you so our first theme is ‘Me and my community’. We will be learning all about being good friends, forming friendships and belonging to a community. With COVID restrictions now eased we are hoping to plan visits out into places in our community and getting to know people who help us in our community. Back in class we will be developing our fine motor skills, learning the true meaning of numbers, counting out objects and recognising numbers. We will be listening for the sounds that objects start with and learning what those sounds look like.
It is going to be an awesome year and we can’t wait to begin on our learning journey together!
