This week Reception has been taken over by lots of little Pirates! We have enjoyed reading Pirate stories, writing Pirate sentences, drawing Pirate maps and finding Pirate treasure. We all dressed up in our outfits and built our very own Pirate ships both indoors and outdoors. Some of us even made our own swords and eye patches to add to our costumes! We are looking forward to continuing our learning through our Pirate topic next week.
Welcome to Reception’s Website page.
Our class teachers are Mrs Malpass, Mrs Mason-Burke and Miss Atkinson.
We also have Miss Street, Miss Barnett, Miss Terry and Mrs Willmore working in our classes.
We have had 9 new additions to our Foundation Stage area this summer term – say hello to our newly hatched chicks! The children have learnt that we have a mixture of hens and cockerels because hens are brown chicks and cockerels are yellow chicks.

In Reception, we have been enjoying celebrating Chinese New Year with lots of different activities.

Finally, we applied our new knowledge of Chinese food and created our own healthy dish of sweet and sour noodles – yum!
In Reception, we have begun our Under the Sea topic where we are learning about different sea creatures and where they live. What better way to learn about under water animals than having some of our own! We are pleased to introduce you to our four pet fish: Smokey, Daisy, Bob and Dot. Ask your children who is who! We love looking after our new pets!
RA, RB and RM have really enjoyed practising and performing their versions of ‘Shine Star, Shine!’ They have spent time learning the songs and actions and rehearsing their lines. Each class did an amazing job of their performances and we are very proud of them! Thank you to all of the super family and friends who helped the children practise at home and came to support and enjoy the productions! Here are just a few of our superstars! Shine Star, Shine!
