weeks 2&3 in school

Anna Head (a.head) on: Reception Blog

In school for weeks 2 and 3 we have been continuing our learning of phonics and maths.

We have also looked at life cycles of animals.  In the last two weeks we have learnt about an elephant and also a hen. We have learnt their lifecycles and also how to draw them.


We have also made fathers day cards for our Dads/Grandads. Hope you all had a lovely day.


The children have also been accessing the play provision inside.


We have been blessed with some lovely dry weather and so the children have enjoyed playing outside too, even exploring the field area again.

This term Reception are looking at life cycles and this week we have looked at butterflies.

The children have learnt about how the butterfly lays  eggs and what happens to them next.

We have created work showing the life cycle.


We also wrote about the different parts of the cycle. Writing some brilliant sentences using all the sounds we know.




We loved labelling the different parts of a butterfly


The children then explored creating butterfly art.


We even went outside to find different butterflies


Wonder what life cycle we will look at next week?

Welcoming children back.

Anna Head (a.head) on: Reception Blog

On Monday the 8th of June we welcomed back some children into school.

The children really adapted well to the changes. We started the day by washing our hands and continued at regular intervals throughout. 

We had lessons as normal, but distances on then carpet.

It was a bit different at lunch time because we had it in the classroom but then we played out as normal.


Then we had free choice play as normal.

A good day was had by all our children.

Our New Classrooms

Anna Head (a.head) on: Reception Blog

As some children are preparing to go back to school, we would like to share with you what our classrooms look like this week. So you can see the kind of activities the children will be accessing. So here are some photos of our 2 bubble rooms for our first groups of children.  All equipment will be washed and a detailed Risk Assessment is in place to make it as safe as possible.
