Reception class

Mrs Foster and Miss Ridley

Welcome to reception class ...

We are very proud of the hard working children in our Reception Class.  The children help each other with their learning by being caring and kind, every day.  Our children are encouraged to make the right 'Choices' in all they do. 

The teaching assistants in Reception, love to support, challenge and encourage the children.  

Reception is often a hive of activity where creative, active and outdoor learning enables our children to progress through the curriculum.

In Reception we have been looking at owls and reading the story Owl babies. The children really enjoyed our visit to Kirkleatham owl centre where we saw a variety of different owls as well as other different kinds of wildlife. Please take a look at our hard work and pictures from our visit below. 

Reception have been learning about Chinese New Year and how it is celebrated. We have been very busy making dragons using different materials as well as trying different Chinese foods. We created a Chinese restaurant role play area where the children enjoyed using different equipment including chopsticks and a wok for their pretend play.

We really enjoyed Pancake day in Reception. We got to try lots of different pancakes using a variety of toppings, the children then chose their favourite and went on to design their own. We then worked very hard to write instructions on how to make a pancake. 

To celebrate World book day the children in Reception dressed up as their favourite super hero after reading the story Super worm. We worked very hard to write sentences about super worm and then went on to design our very own super heroes. 

An Animation Challenge - We were invited to Inspire2Learn in Middlesbrough, where we made some amazing animations.  Hope you like them.
