Reception W 2021 - 2022

Mrs Walley

Mrs Grayson


In the EYFS we challenge children to become independent learners and critcial thinkers through our continuous provision and targeted learning challenges. We are very excited to share all the amazing things we do in school with you. Please check out our page for regular updates and photos.

Welcome to Reception 1 where a love of learning is at the heart of everything we do! The teacher in our classroom is Mrs Walley, along with Mrs Grayson and we have the support of some fantastic teaching assistants, Mrs McGuinness, Miss Hibbert, Mrs Ashley, Mrs Musgrove and Mrs Borg-Fenech.


Our class saint is St. Joseph, he was the husband of Mary, the mother of Jesus. St Joseph was a carpenter or woodworker. The Gospel of Matthew calls him a “righteous man,” meaning he was an observant Jew who obeyed God's law. On St Joseph's feast day the children in Reception will dress up as people who help us in our community.


Summer 2

Our topic this half term is On our Way

Our key texts this term are 'The Naughty Bus' and 'Emma Janes Aeroplane'

The children will start our new topic by thinking about different modes of transport and how we travel. We will then be exploring different holidays and how countries are different to where we live. We will be looking back at events in the past and learning all about Amelia Earhart and her flying adventure. 


 Please see our Medium term plan for more details.

Owl of the Week

Each Friday a child is chosen to take Ollie the Owl home for the weekend. We encourage parents to take photos of what your child and Ollie have been doing over the weekend and add them to Ollie's adventure book. They are then shared with the class during Monday morning snack and chat time.
