Reception

Welcome to Reception!

We are excitedly embarking on our summer's learning within the theme 'Let's Have An Adventure'.  Our learning will include looking at magical adventures such as Jack and the Beanstalk and magical potions (following on from our learning about A Midsummer Night's Dream, last term) before moving onto space themed adventures.  We will be studying the text 'On Sudden Hill' and exploring it's focus on friendships and relationships as well as having lots of our own adventures in cardboard boxes.  During the second half of term we will be having mini beast and then pirate themed adventures.

Following the children's interests we have created areas where the children can have dinosaur and fairy based exploration adventures.

During lockdown, our Reception Bubble children worked extremely hard, with regular contact from school staff (Live Lessons, Small Group sessions, One to One and Intervention calls).  Since our return to school we have been focusing on children's emotional wellbeing and personal and social skills as they have settled back into the school environment alongside their class mates. 

Thank you for your support at this testing time.  It is by working together that we can ensure the continued learning and mental well-being needs of our Welford pupils are met.
