Welcome to Reception!
Hello Parents and Carers,
I hope that you are all safe and well and coping with home learning.
To help I have made a timetable of activities for you and your child to try each day. Each week’s learning will be focused around a story just like we do at school. Please don’t worry if you cannot do everything. The most important thing is not to get stressed and enjoy spending time talking and having fun with your child.
Thank you for all your support!
Welcome to Reception class where we foster the potential of all our children through our stimulating and engaging learning environment both indoor and outside. In fact our outdoor provision has been described as “one of the best in Walsall” by an L.A. moderator visiting the school in June 2014.
We offer a balanced curriculum taught through the seven areas of learning, where children are encouraged to be independent “have a go” learners, with the support of the adults around them.
We want all our children to feel safe and secure in their environment, promoting self-confidence, independence, self-esteem and an eagerness to learn. Each half term a new learning topic is introduced and through themed stories and practical play based experiences the children gain new knowledge and skills to help them become confident, successful and happy learners.
We aim to work in partnership with parents and families, promoting the very best relationship to support learning. We support all our children in developing their ‘school readiness’ by the end of Reception, equipping them with a broad range of skills and knowledge to take them into Year 1.
Reception Outside Classroom
Pupils have the opportunity to work and play outside every day in whatever the weather!
Reception put on their wellies and wet weather suits if necessary and explore in the outdoors.
We are very lucky to have a fantastic outdoor space with chickens, tunnels and very soon our own mud kitchen made from pallets.
Reception have patiently waited for sides to be fitted to part of their outdoor area. This will enable activities to continue outside during the winter months and in the rain.
Reception Pirate Day
Reception had a brilliant pirate themed day on Monday 15th January. They have been reading stories about pirate adventures and learning all the language associated with them. Hope Miss Fellows didn't end up "Walking the plank!"
Reception rescued a hedgehog. The hedgehog was really hungry and ate lots of cat food before it snuggled into a box of straw. At the end of the school day Reception pupils released the hedgehog back into the undergrowth in the EYFS garden.
