Reception

It has been a great year for the children in Reception. They have all made so much progress since they started in September and I wish them well as they progress to Year 1. Da iawn pawb! 
It is skills week this week. Reception class have read the story of 'The Bear and the Piano.' We worked with our friends to build a den for the bear and made a flag to show it belonged to Bear.

We have been using our observational skills to look for signs of Spring

This week has been 'Easter Week' across all the classes in the school. Reception class have been learning the story of Easter from the Bible. We have been finding out about the symbols we think about at Easter time. The children looked at Easter cards and the symbols they could see as inspiration for their own card. We have been considering the theme of 'New Life' at Easter time and planted seeds to look after over the holidays.
As part of our topic of 'Castles and Dragons' we went to visit Cardiff castle to find out first hand what we have been learning in the classroom. The highlight of the day was to meet a Knight and find out about his job, armour and weapons.

We made shields at home and decorated them in school.

Reception

This half term or topic is ‘What a Wonderful World’.

 

It is a geography based topic looking at countries and lifestyles in other parts of the world. We will be learning about extremes in temperatures as we investigate the icy South Pole and the hot plains of Africa

 

Each week we will be using books, food, photos, film clips and have visitors to help us learn about the country. The children will use maps, globes and even Google Earth to help begin to understand their own wonderful world. If you have anything that might be of use to us or know of people who might come in to talk to the children, please let one of us know.

 

 

Look at our photos about the frozen South Polar region

We celebrated Chinese New Year as we found out about the traditions and country of China

Today we went to Techniquest to find out about Night and Day. We explored all the exhibits and went to the show called 'Woodland Wonders.'Everyone was very well behaved. The bus was quiet on the way home! Zzzz!
Welcome to Reception's Class page. Over the year I will try to keep you updated with information, photos and examples of children's work. Many children don't like to talk about their school day and so I'm hoping this will help you to find out about your child's day and all the fun things they have been learning. smiley

Today is Green Day! We are supporting the 'Size of Wales' charity.  We have talked about looking after trees in the rain forests

The class Welcome letter

This term our topic is ‘Alive and Kicking’.  We will be finding out about staying healthy, what foods are good for us and how being active and exercise effects our bodies.  We will explore families and look closely at the differences between us. The children will begin to learn the sounds that letters make and develop their number skills every day.  Before long you will be invited into school to find out how we approach reading in Reception class and how you can support your child at home. 

Our very first busy week in Reception...
