As the school year progresses, we will be adding some useful information to this page. This may be handy tips and tricks to help your child at home or may be some useful websites for learning. Please scroll down for some useful information in regards to the Early Years curriculum and what to expect this year. 



In the event of your child needing to self-isolate at any time during this school year, we will be uploading tasks to complete regularly on the Reception information page alongside setting printer free activities and mini challenges on Tapestry too. Maths and English tasks will be set and there will also be a topic grid full of activities that cover all the other subjects we do in class linked to our current class topic.

This term our topic is Minibeasts.  We will learning about various minibeasts that can be found in our gardens and their habitats . We will be learning about their life cycles and how they are good for the environment. We will also be reading lots of stories about minibeasts such as Aaaaarrgghh Spider, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Superworm. In maths we will be learning to; add by counting on and subtract by counting back, doubles, sharing and halving and odd and even numbers.  



This term our focus is on Special Places.

 The aim of this unit is to:

  • begin to develop pupils understanding of a place being considered as a special/holy place where believers go to worship.

The Christian Values covered in this unit are;

Creativity, Friendship, Respect and Reverence

 We will be thinking of these Key Questions 

  • Where is your special place?
  • Why is it special?
  • Why is the church a special place?
  • When do you visit your special place?
  • Who goes with you to your special place?
  • What makes a place a holy place?

We will be listening to the stories of Abraham moving home, Moses and the Burning Bush and Jesus in the Temple. 

We will also be learning about Our Christian Value - Thankfulness this term. We will be identifying things we can be thankful for and how we can show this.
