In Reception, Mrs Hawkswood, Mrs Thompson and Mrs Kenny all help the children in RHT with their learning and Miss Daly, Mrs Calgotra and Mrs Snead all teach the children in RD.

This term, all the children and staff in Reception have been very busy.

Reception children settled into school very well and have made great strides in being independent. We have had lots of circle times and we have enjoyed learning how to share and take turns. We have been learning lots of new graphemes in phonics and we have done lots of sound-talking of words.


To help our Communication and Language (C&L) and Expressive Arts and Design (EAD) curriculum areas, we took part in World Nursery Rhyme Week where we learnt a new nursery rhyme everyday as well as practising rhymes for homework.


We have celebrated festivals including the Mid-Autumn Festival, Diwali and the Christmas story. As part of our Diwali celebrations we made Diva lamps and Rang oli patterns. We also discussed Remembrance Day and learnt the story behind this. We have enjoyed talking about our families and our lives outside school.
