Reception (Turtles)

Welcome to Reception! We are the Bumblebee Class.  In Reception we have lots of fun and learn through discovery and play.  The Bumblebee team is made up of Mrs Cropley, Mrs Hawthorne and Miss Bradshaw.  Mrs Cordell is currently on maternity leave, but will be back with us soon.

November News

In Reception we have been looking at Autumn and how the weather has changed. We have started to talk about how the weather will get even colder now as we move into winter. We have also learned about different celebrations including Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day and Diwali. For Diwali we made our own diwas and lit them in class. We will now continue to learn our Christmas songs and have a go at writing our own cards and letters to Santa!

In Reception we have been thinking about how much we have grown and changed since we were babies.  We have talked about how many more things we are able to do now that we are bigger.  We have also thought about how we are the same and how we are different to others.  

Reception's harvest song

Reception have been really enjoying singing the song, "Opening the squeaky door!"  There are loads of actions to do...Why not ask your child to show you and maybe even join in yourself. Enjoy!
