Welcome to Reception 2017 - 2018

Woodland Work

Reception had a lovely trip to the Methodist Garden's wooded area this morning. The children have given this area a new name and it is now called the 'Gruffalo Woods'. We spent time using magnifying glasses to look closely at the insects we could find and captured some to take back to class for a closer look. (They have since been returned to their natural environment). Some of the children then decided to draw and paint the insects they found. Our classes are now full of lots of spiders, worms, slugs and snails! Take a look at our photos.

Our first week at school

We have had a busy first week in Gruffalo and Elmer class this week. We have begun to make new friends and explore our new learning environments. Take a look at our photos!

We can't wait to welcome all the new Reception children next week. The classes are all set up and ready for learning. Take a look at some of the photos!
