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 2

This term we are talking about different festival we celebrate in our local community and people celebrate around the world. We will be looking at Diwali, Bonfire Night and Christmas in particular. We will try to find links between all of them, noticing similarities and differences. On top of that we will be exploring colour and light, mixing primary colours and investigating light and shadows in our dark den. We will learn a few key events in the history of England (Gunpowder Plot) and in the history of the world (Remembrance Day). At the end of the term we are hoping to engage in a variety of fun Christmas crafts and activities. 


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 display them in the class and then add these to the learning journeys.
