  • Autumn 2 in Reception

    date posted: 21/01/20


    Reception had a fun start to the Autumn 2 term when we were joined by fathers, uncles and grandparents for FUDGE morning. Thank you to everyone who joined us for lots of different activities both inside and outside the classroom. All the children loved being able to show you their learning environment.

    We enjoyed exploring our different senses this half term. We loved tasting different foods whilst exploring our sense of taste.


    All the children were very excited to perform in the Nativity. The children were amazing playing different roles and they should be very proud of themselves. Thank you again for coming to see all the children perform, we hope you enjoyed yourselves.

    Leading up to the Christmas break, the children were hard at work making traditional Christmas cakes. It was a long process, but we hope they were worth it in the end as we think the cakes all looked amazing!

    To celebrate the end of a busy first term in Reception, all the children loved the Christmas party day. We danced, ate lots of food and enjoyed lots of party games. Merry Christmas everyone!

    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!

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.
