If you look at the curriculum pages under the information tab you can see what your child will be learning during their time in our Reception Class.

Odd Socks Day


We absolutely love our Bushcraft mornings with Miss. Heckler! We have been exploring the school grounds, tree spotting, insect hunting and collecting sticks and leaves. Our favourite morning so far was when we went on a Gruffalo hunt! The children even managed to find the only puddle on the playground to do some puddle jumping!

Lunar New Year

The children have loved learning all about the Lunar New Year during this terms topic session. They made their own dragon masks ready to join in with a dragon dance in class. 

World Book Day

The children loved being involved in World Book Day in school. Miss Provis shared her favourite book with us and off we went on our own bear hunt.

We’re going on a bear hunt,
We’re going to catch a big one,
I’m not scared
What a beautiful day!


We have been learning all about Capacity with Mrs. Gould. The children had to fill the cups with different amounts of liquid and then use the new vocabulary to describe what they could see.

Remembrance Day

The children have been learning all about Remembrance Day this week and have been busy creating their own poppy pictures. As a class, we have made a giant poppy that is now being displayed in our classroom. Mrs. Mitchell and Mrs. Gee were so proud of how respectful they all were during the two minutes silence.
Well done Acorns!!
