Welcome to Merlins!

In Reception we follow the children's interest and facilitate learning experiences through play. We have an outside learning area where children can explore and develop their interests in the outdoor environment. They can get messy in the mud kitchen, wet in water tray, balance on bikes, look after nature and play imaginatively!
We encourage you to read with your child on a regular basis (at least three times a week) and practise the phonic flashcards daily.
Show and tell days
We encourage children to bring something in from home to share with the rest of the class – it can be anything! These sessions have a big impact on their communication, language and listening skills. We will start show and tell days once the children are in full time.
Each week PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday morning.
Please make sure you send your child in with a fruit, yoghurt or cheese snack each day.
To see more about the Merlins class, take a look at the Merlins blog page which is updated with information about the children's learning regularly.
