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!


Home learning

We encourage you to read with your child on a regular basis (at least four times a week) and practise the phonic flashcards daily.


Show and Tell

Show and tell sessions will be on Tuesday  afternoons. Two children per week bring something in from home to share with the class. We will send a note home when it is their turn.These sessions have a big impact on their communication, language and listening skills. 


PE days

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 trikes.


Snack time

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.





Knowledge Organiser

Every term we create a knowledge organiser which contains the key information that we want to learn in our science and humanities topic. This term our topic is Brum Brum, Beep, Beep. Please see below for a copy of our knowledge organiser.
