Welcome to Merlins!

In Reception we follow termly topics,the children's interests and facilitate learning experiences through play. We have an outside learning area where children can explore and develop their interests in addition to the classroom. They can get messy in the mud kitchen, wet in water tray, look after nature and play imaginatively!
We encourage you to read with your child on a regular basis (at least four times a week) and practise the phonic flashcards daily.
PE will be on Friday afternoons and we have another outdoor session in the playground on Wednesday afternoons when the children can use outdoor equipment such as bikes and scooters. They do not need to wear PE kit for this.
Please make sure you send your child in with a fruit, yoghurt or cheese snack each day. They should also bring a bottle of water (rather than juice/squash).
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.
Every term we create a knowledge organiser which contains the key information that we want the children to learn in our science and humanities topic. It would be really helpful if you could discuss the information with your child.This term our topic is 'This Is Me.' Please see below for a copy of our knowledge organiser.
