Reception – Owls

Welcome to Reception!




Where learning is child’s play! 


In Owls we want children to develop a real love for learning. We will provide exciting and inspiring opportunities that allow children to explore, create, develop, grow and thrive. We want the children to become independent learners who think critically and challenge themselves. But most of all we want the children to have lots of fun and enjoy the start to their school life! 


Term 1 

The first topic this year is ‘Marvellous Me’ and the children will be exploring what it means to be them! They will be looking at themselves and how they have grown, what their family is like, where they live and what makes them unique! Each week will focus around a different book and ‘mini theme’. The children will be inspired by famous artists and how they created artwork based on people and portraits, they’ll even make faces out of fruit, vegetables and natural materials! There will also be walks around the local area to look at different buildings and to hunt for signs of Autumn to add to our display.  


Parents as partners 

We encourage parents to talk to their child about the learning they have been doing and you will receive regular emails to keep you informed of the learning focus and key information. We also 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.
