Autumn 17


Thank you to all of the Reception children’s parents for their support in helping their child settle into the new routines and expectations of Reception.

We would like to share some photographs of the children getting to know their new environment as they settle in. They have been very busy exploring and trying new activities.

Outdoors children have been building cars, towers and castles with the blocks. They have been finding their way around the mud kitchen, baking cakes and making meals for their friends to try. The water area has been very popular too!


Indoors the children have found the CleverTouch board very interesting! They have been developing role play situations both in the small world area and the home corner. Children are beginning to recognise their names and match the correct letters, some of the children are even having a go at writing their names! The children’s number skills are also beginning to develop as they count and sort different objects in the maths area as well as a range of different contexts e.g. milk and fruit time.
