Welcome to Reception!
Mrs Cooper is the Reception Class Teacher. The class TAs are Miss Hawkins and Mrs Harris. On a Tuesday morning reception will have Mrs Biggart as the teacher while I am out of class on PPA.
We love learning in Reception! Have a look below to see photos of some of the things we did last year. Keep checking back in for updates of the fun learning this year. You can also find more up to date pictures and information about what we have been doing on our Class Dojo page.
You will find links to useful websites and documents, such as how to correctly form letters, at the bottom of this page. Please feel free to make suggestions to Mrs Cooper as to what else you would like to see on this page.
If your child is self-isolating at home, you will find daily home learning activities on Teams. Please login at http://learning.bwmat.org or download the Microsoft Teams app.
Your child has an individual login but please contact Mrs Cooper or Mrs Clark, via Class Dojo, if you are having any problems logging in.
Autumn Term 2021
The children have been busy getting to know each other and have had lots of fun exploring their new classroom environment.
We have been enjoying exploring the cold weather and investigating the frost outside. We heard it crunch under our feet and had fun writing in it. We found ice in the playground and had fun breaking it up and watching it melt.
Our learning within maths and writing has been lots of fun. We have investigated number in lots of different ways and our mark making and letter formation is improving all the time.
Fun days in Reception
The children had lots of fun exploring learning in different ways. We held a Cinderella day where the children joined in ballroom dancing and crown making. Noah’s Ark also came to visit and we explored animals and their habitats.
The children have settled really well into school. They are enjoying exploring the environment and learning through their play experiences. They are building, making, writing and working together in many different ways. Have a look at the photos below to see what they have been learning.
Autumn Term 2018
We have been having lots of fun exploring our new environment. We access the outdoor area, lots of mark making resources and lots of objects that help us with maths. Have a look below at some of the fun learning we have been doing in Term 1.
All about shapes
The children have been exploring shapes. We have looked at shapes around the school, built with lots of different shapes, made pictures with shapes and played shape bingo. The children are getting very good at naming 2D and 3D shapes and recognising them.
Spring term 2019
The children have had lots of fun over the spring term. Our first fun topic was ice and the arctic. The children explored making ice and enjoyed finding ice outside. They learnt lots about arctic animals and developed their own role play area including an igloo and a fishing game.
People who help us
We had lots of fun learning about our community and people who help us. We explored doctors, nurses, police, fire fighters, teachers and lots more.
We were lucky to have a visit from one of our parents who is a nurse. We learnt about how nurses help people, what equipment they use and how important it is to wash our hands as germs spread a long way.
This term our parents joined us for a writing session. We showed them how we form our letters and had fun completing some writing activities with them.
