Welcome to our Reception class page!

In Reception we focus heavily on learning through stories. Our topics loosely follow these books but more importantly we follow the interests of the children in our class. Our class trips are linked to these stories/topics and also the changes in the world around us and seasons.

All information about our latest news and events can be found below!


We have visited Freshways this week to buy our own vegetables. We have been reading the story Oliver’s Vegetables and wanted to make our own soup!

We had even more fun eating our soup!

The Little Library Van

The Little Library Van came to visit us in school on Wednesday 1st March. We all went into the van and listened to stories, sang songs and used musical instruments. We had lots of fun!

Stockley Farm Christmas Visit

Everyone in Nursery and Reception went on a trip to Stockley Farm. We took part in a live Nativity, we saw all of the animals on the farm, the owls, where they milk the cows on the farm and finally we went to meet Father Christmas!

Story time Session with Emma from Hanley Library

Emma came in to see us and share story time with us. We really enjoyed hearing Kitchen Disco and dancing along with her.

Thank you to all parents that came to share this with us in class and thank you to Emma for our lovely book packs.

Our Visit to Blue Planet

We recently went to visit Blue Planet Aquarium. We all had so much fun and saw so many fish, sharks, sting rays and other under the sea creatures. Some of us were worn out on the way home!

Have a look at our photos below.
