A proud member of


Welcome to Reception – Mrs Hyde, Mrs Haigh, Ms. Sephton, Ms. Taylor and Ms Turner 

Please have an explore of the learning we have been doing and what exciting things we have coming up.




Last half term we were learning about: In The Garden.


Our topic last half term was ‘In the Garden’. We learnt lots of new facts about different mini beasts and creatures we might find in our garden. We studied the life cycle of a caterpillar and butterfly, we even watched this before our very eyes in class with our real caterpillars! We have learnt lots of new words and we can talk in detail about the life cycle. We also learnt about ladybirds, did you know they are a type of beetle? They also hatch without wings and make a cocoon like a caterpillar! We thoroughly enjoyed working in our forest area in school to search for different mini beasts and we used magnifying glasses because some were so small!



Well done to everyone who gained Class Dojo points during the last half term.

Our top scorers were: MR, CT, JM, EH and WS.
