Reception 2018 - 2019
Miss Pankhurst/Miss Pearson
We are now into the final term of the reception year! This is the term in which all our prior learning comes together and we begin to look ahead to prepare for Year One. This starts with the introduction of our whole class PE lessons, where our organisational and listening skills come to the fore as the children change into their PE kits before joining in with each week's activity.
Now that we have reached our final term together in school, it provides the perfect opportunity for us to look back and reflect on what we can do now compared with when we were younger. Coupled together with the summer season, we are enjoying celebrating some English traditions such as St George’s Day and May Day, using them to form a love of traditional fairy stories and story characters.
In June, with the warmer weather upon us, we shall be joining in with The Wildlife Trust’s ‘Go Wild in June’ project, developing the children’s love of the outdoors with lots of fun activities both in school and at home.
This is a very exciting term for us as we look forward to performing our very first class assembly in addition to our first school sports day. We also have a day trip planned to visit Reddish Vale Farm in June.
The children continue to be independent little learners and as we move through the summer term we will be introducing the expectations of Year One. Opportunities will be planned in for them to meet their new teachers and to begin to feel more grown up as they prepare to move their learning into the main school building.
