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.


Term 3


Once upon a time, Owls class went on a magical adventure. On this journey they will meet some curious characters, including a spider who kept climbing up a spout. Stopping to speak to her, they will find out some fascinating facts such as how and why she weaves her web and the curious colour of her blood. Continuing on with their journey, they encounter a huge beanstalk stretching up into the clouds. Where could it go? What will they find? They will make moving models of the horrible creature that lives at the top and write a speech bubble to show what it says. Having safely negotiated their way down the beanstalk, their troubles aren't over as they encounter a running gingerbread man, a little red hen and three very angry bears who are moaning about someone having broken into their house and ruined their things. Finally, their adventures at an end, they all lived happily ever after.

Here are some websites that you and your child might enjoy looking at together:
