Welcome to the Reception Class page of our school website. We hope that you will find lots of useful information and enjoy reading about the wonderful learning that takes place in our class.
Our class team consists of Mrs Hamer, Mrs McFadden, Miss Walsh and of course, our wonderful children.
Our Yearly Overview
This planning acts as an overview to ensure specific coverage of some of the learning objectives in the EYFS. It should not be viewed in its entirety as the whole curriculum that we offer. Our planning allows for flexibility and will often be enhanced by the children’s interests during a specific topic.
Inspired by nature
We have been looking at the work of Andy Goldsworthy, a sculptor and artist who uses natural materials to create fabulous works of art. We were inspired by images of his work and decided to create our own works of art using a range of natural materials. I'm sure you will agree, the children are displaying some wonderful creative flair.
The EYFS children had a great time exploring Heaton Park and looking at the changes that happen during Autumn.
As part of our autumn celebrations, we discussed harvest time and harvest festivals. We looked at a range of vegetables that are harvested and decided we would use them to make our own vegetable soup. We had fun peeling, slicing and chopping the vegetables. However, the best part was eating the soup. As Tomas said “it was yummy”.
We love the Autumn season! It's a great chance for us to read one of our favourite stories...'room on the broom' and dress up!
Silly Socks Day!
We love winning a class attendance award. It gives us the opportunity to do fun things such as wearing odd socks for school. We had a great time comparing socks and looking at all the different patterns and designs.
