Reception


Reception classes are Caterpillar and Ladybird.

In YR, we went on our first EVER school trip to the Gordon Brown Activity Centre after reading a range of ‘Percy the Park keeper’ books.  We were looking at using our senses during the exciting Autumn period. We created our own leaf pictures after reading ‘Leaf Man’ by Lois Ehlert.  We also went on an autumn walk and had a bonfire party with hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows to encourage us to use our five senses.
One of our topics has been called, “Up, Up and Away!” and we have read the Owl Babies by Martin Waddell and ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort.  We wrote short sentences about the stories. Ladybird Class performed an assembly to parents and the rest of the school dressed as aliens.
