Our current topic 

Each term we focus on key skills to help the children reach the Early Learning Goals (ELG) by the end of their year in Reception. The key skills are taught through whole class topics which are inspired by the children's interests, special times of the year and events.  



This term we will learn about winter, arctic animals, British Birds, animals in traditional tales and celebrating Chinese New Year and Easter. Check out our weekly newsletter for more information about our activities and learning.

End of Reception Early Learning Goals (ELG)


We posted letters to Santa and visited the local park. In the EYFS curriculum we explore a range of climbing and moving skills. It was good fun climbing, spinning, sliding, swinging and having fun together. The children all enjoyed the experience and walked safely alongside the roadside.



In Reception we LOVE many things - here are some of the things we LOVE!


We love learning - we understand that play is a vital ingredient! Through play children make progress with their language, creativity, social skills, emotional well-being and cognitive development. Our ever-developing indoor and outdoor provision areas allow children to practice their new ideas, take risks, show imagination and begin to solve problems on their own or with friends. 


We love reading - we read stories as a class every day. We are working really hard to learn all our sounds and blend words together.


Please READ everyday with your child!


We love our parents - our parents are so important to our learning! It is very important that they read with us every day and keep up to date with the Tapestry app to see what we are doing.



Little Wandle is our chosen government approved scheme for teaching phonics and early literacy. There is a wealth of information and guidance about how to support your child with their reading on their website.
