Our daily homework is to read to an adult at home and watch the daily phonics video sent on Class Dojo. We send reading books home each day. Please write a comment in your child's diary each time they read and return to school daily. 
Our PE and Forest school day is Thursday.  Suitable clothing and footwear will be needed. 


Our EYFS Curricular goals

EYFS Curricular Goals 2021(1).jpg


Our curricular goals provide a stimulus to enhance the children's imagination, creativity and curiosity in Reception. We follow children's interests and plan various enhancements to the continuous provision that enable children to develop the skills required to achieve the EYFS milestones.




Our Learning in Reception so far...

We like to explore the learning environment inside and outside in our independent learning time. We go outdoors in all weathers! We teach phonics through formal Read Write Inc. sessions and Maths through Mathematics Mastery sessions. We enhance the learning environment with activities to support children's next steps.

'Throw your wellies on, it's Thursday!'

We go into the Forest school area every Thursday. We wrap up warm and wear sensible shoes and waterproof coats. Each week we complete exciting activities in the Forest School. These activities promote our resilience, problem solving and team work skills. Visit our Classdojo page to follow our Forest School learning journey.

Week 1 - We explored the Forest school. We worked collaboratively in our different areas. We enjoyed making "potions" in our mud kitchen. 

Week 2 - We read the story 'We're going on a leaf hunt!" We discussed the different signs of Autumn and we went on our very own leaf hunts. 

Week 3 - We read the story 'Hovis the hedgehog'. We talked about hibernation and nocturnal animals. We talked about ways to look after woodland animals and keep them safe. We went litter picking and make safe habitats for small animals. 

Week 4 - National Poetry day. Today we listened to 'The Jungle boogie' and 'Rumble in the jungle'. We made our own poems and used instruments to perform these. We made crowns and made dances to go with our poems!
