Reception – Owls
Welcome to Reception!
We like to get stuck in!
Our aim is to provide the children with a smooth (but exciting!) transition into school. We believe that if you sing, dance, look, touch, listen, play, make, explore, act, draw and sometimes get quite mucky, then you're learning lots.
Each week, we will email out a sheet outlining some of the things that your child will be doing and learning that week so you can talk to them about their learning at home. We love to hear about what your child has done at home so please share their achievements using a 'WOW' moment sheet. We will then be able to add these to their learning journeys.
The Owls have six topics over the course of the year. For more information about our Reception curriculum, please click on the link to go to our curriculum page.
This term, the whole school is doing a seaside topic. We are calling ours 'Splish, Splash, Splosh'. As part of this work, we will don the pirate hats we've made and sail the seven seas in search of treasure and adventure. Diving beneath the waves, we will swim alongside fish and other sea-creatures and we may even befriend a mermaid or two. Resurfacing, we will visit 'Miranda the Castaway' and see the wonderful life she creates for herself on her island. Finally, we'll be helping a lighthouse keeper who is having a bit of trouble with some seagulls who keep stealing his lunch. This will allow us to learn about foods that we should eat a lot of and food that we should eat as treats and we'll try and pack the lighthouse keeper a healthy packed lunch.
