Welcome to our Reception page.

Please visit regularly to find up-to-date information from our year group. There are two classes in Reception;

Bees and Caterpillars.

Spring Term

This term we have looked at our school and local area. We looked closely at our postcode and where we live, we also compared it to other countries that we have been to such as Bangladesh, Pakistan, India, Spain, Senegal. We designed a new playground and each child suggested an new zone to be added, which included outdoor swimming pools and rollercoasters!

We have taken part in many celebrations, such as Shrove Tuesday, St. David’s Day, Chinese New Year, St. Patrick’s Day, Valentines Day and Mother’s Day.

Autumn Term

We thoroughly enjoyed retelling the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘The Gingerbread man’ to our parents as part of our hot tell.

The children have thoroughly enjoyed themselves this term and settled well into life at Mansfield Green.

Our Dinosaur topic was been very popular with the reception children. The children became Paleontologists, exploring dinosaur fossils. The children took part in an egg hunt and developed their knowledge of which animals hatch from an egg.

In computer week children took part in making different parts of a computer. The children are now able to recall the different parts of the computer and made their own laptops.

We were so pleased to see lots of Reception children receiving their bronze awards for their passport for learning; keeping up the good work.

Finally,  thank you to all the parents/carers and family members who came to see the Nativity.
