Welcome to the Reception Class page of our school website. We hope this page gives you an insight into the wonderful learning that takes place in our class.
Our class team consists of Mrs Hamer, Mrs Culkin, Mrs McFadden and of course, our fantastic children.
We had a fabulous time in Heaton Park looking for signs that the season of Autumn had arrived. We looked at the beautiful colours of the leaves and listened to the sounds that they made under our feet. We spotted some lovely carvings in trees and even got to play "pooh sticks" as we crossed over the stream.
This term we have been looking at the season of Autumn. We explored the changes that happen in our local environment during Autumn and looked at some of the festivals that are celebrated. We found out about Diwali...the festival of light, which is celebrated by Hindus and Sikhs. We learnt that homes are decorated with lights and oil lamps during Diwali. We used our creative talents to make our own Diya pots. As you can see from the pictures, we certainly have a talented set of children here in the ReceptIon Class.
We finished a busy first half term by having a 'spooky party' to raise money for Cafod. Everybody enjoyed the opportunity to get dressed up and take part in some 'spooktacular' activities.
