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

We are so happy to see the children settling in beautifully and we are very proud of every single one of them! The children are more and more confident at choosing activities of their interests and making new friends. Well done!

The topic for this term is ‘Super Me’. We will be talking about our interests, likes and dislikes, our families and how we have changed over time. We will discuss friendships and brainstorm on how to be a good friend. We will be talking about how special we are and what it is that makes up special.. We will also learn the names of different parts of our bodies. Each week will focus around a different book and ‘mini theme’. The children will be inspired by a variety of artists and how they create artwork using different media, with a particular focus on portraits and auto-portraits..


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.
