  • Autumn 1 in Reception

    date posted: 04/11/19


    This half term we have spent a lot of time getting to know the children. We have loved listening to the children talk about their ‘Marvellous Me’ bags and all the special things inside. We have been busy painting portraits of ourselves, looking at similarities and differences and why we are special.

    The children have been looking for shapes in the environment. Each class went on shape hunts in the playground. Look what shapes we found!


    We have been busy looking for signs of Autumn around the school grounds. We explored the big playground and orchard and found lots of Autumnal leaves that had fallen. The children enjoyed looking at all the different colours.

    We had an amazing time at the Grandparent’s Tea Party. The children loved seeing their family members and enjoyed all of goodies that had been decorated. We hope you enjoyed the children’s singing, they had been practising very hard over the past few weeks!

    We would like to say a huge welcome to all of our Reception children and parents. The children have all enjoyed transitioning into their new classes, meeting lots of new friends and exploring their new environment. This is our favourite time of the year as we get to spent a lot of time getting to know all the children, we have particularly loved hearing about their 'Marvellous Me' bag and all the fun things they did over the holidays.
