Welcome to Reception

Spring 2

Watch me grow!


We are so excited to explore our learning  together during our new unit: Watch me grow!. We will be learning all about the signs of Spring and how it brings new life. We will be learning all about how plants and animals grow and change over time. As we approach Easter, we will also be learning about why this event is so important to us, and how it is celebrated. 


On our Class Page you will be able to see all of the information that you need to find out about our learning throughout our time together. If you scroll to the bottom you can see our 'book hooks' and news! Please see Our Weekly Learning Blog tab for updates, and our Curriculum Newsletter for the overview of learning for Spring 1.


 Please check Dojo for regular updates and notices. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact us via Dojo or email.

Library books need to be returned each Wednesday so that your child can exchange it for a new one on our weekly library trip. Practice reading books should be returned every Thursday and a new one will be sent home with your child on Friday.

Run, run as fast as you can!



Uh oh! This video footage was caught in the staffroom of a little man jumping out of the oven and running away! Who is he? Where is he going? We look forward to the children's reactions this week as the Gingerbread Man sends us postcards from his current location. We may even have to create some 'wanted posters' so that we can try to get him back! 

Stuck in the mud!



It’s been a very muddy first Forest School but the children were absolutely super! They really enjoyed exploring their surroundings, experimenting in the mud kitchen, looking for bugs, building dens, and discovering dinosaur eggs. Here are some of the snaps that we took during all of the excitement! ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Autumn is upon us!



Thank you so much to everyone that has donated Autumnal items from their weekend walks. ๐Ÿ˜Š The children have enjoyed exploring the natural world in lots of different ways; we have set up an investigation station, Autumnal small world for story telling, fine motor activities and ‘Autumn soup’ in the water tray. ๐Ÿ‚ ๐Ÿ We will show you all of our exciting Autumn themed learning on Our Weekly Learning Blog on Friday.

Can we take your order, please?



As our All About Me unit comes to a close, we have based our role play area this week on a familiar place. When we asked the children where their favourite place in Leyland was, the majority replied with "McDonald's". So we have opened our very own!


A HUGE thank you to the team at McDonald's in Leyland for donating some of their packaging to us, to help make our role play come to life. 




Yesterday during snack there were a few seeds left on the floor, and today when we came into school something ginormous had grown! Can you talk to your adult at home about this mysterious object? What else can you spot around it? How might this link to our learning this week?

We can't wait to hear your answers!

We've been making a splash!



We were eager to get outside this afternoon after the heavy rain started off our Monday morning. The children were very intrigued by the puddles and mud that the shower had left, so it wasn't long before the wellies were on and the splashing begun! We really enjoyed investigating how our outdoor area had changed as a result of the heavy rain.

Look what's arrived in EYFS!



What has happened here? Who made this big mess? What is all over the floor? Where do you think this is? When did it happen?

Can you help us solve the mystery for this week’s story? ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธ‍โ™€๏ธ

New Starters

September 2023


We’re really looking forward to seeing you in our classroom on Monday!

We are conscious that some children may not have had a chance to come and have a look around school before summer. With this in mind, we have created a little video for each class giving a short tour of your new classroom.

We hope you enjoy watching your journey together and we cannot wait to greet you at the door on Monday 4th September 2023.
