Welcome to Reception


Our teachers Mrs Shaikh and Miss Hope and our amazing support assistants are Mrs Gornall, Miss Cookson, Mrs Ahmad and Mrs Shakir.

Miss Davy works with children who need extra support with speech and language. Miss O’ Sullivan and Mrs Sheth provide specialist support for children in Reception.



Last half term our topic was called

‘If you go down in the woods….’ We read lots of different bear stories and acted out the stories using props. We used non-fiction books to find out about all different types of bears and then we made a fact file about our chosen bear. We looked at properties of different materials and described how materials

and substances change.

We even brought in our own teddy bears from home and had a teddy bears picnic.




This half term our topic will be

What a Wonderful World!

We will be exploring the amazing world we live in. We will be observing the features of different environments and discussing our likes and dislikes. We will also be investigating, observing and commenting on different weather conditions.

In Literacy we will be listening to stories and rhymes and using language to imagine and recreate roles and experiences. We will be doing lots of writing about what we have found out. 

You can watch a video of our Once Upon a Time topic here.
