Miss Hopper and Miss Kyle

Welcome to Reception


REK and RAH consist of 38 children; our teachers are Miss Kyle and Miss Hopper and our higher learning teaching assistant is Mrs Fulton-Wren.

This half term, we are looking forward to learning all about our favourite stories written by the author, Julia Donaldson. We will be exploring a woodland theme, such as the Room on the Broom, Stick Man, the Gruffulo and the Gruffulo’s Child. We will be exploring Forest school further, through making magical potions, finding the Gruffulo and describing snowy, winter scenes.





Wedding celebrations

This week, we enjoyed listening to the “Scarecrow’s wedding” story, written by Julia Donaldson. We decided to have our very own wedding celebration, including our very own bride and groom, bridesmaids, groomsmen and wedding guests. We even had a disco, party food and a dance to celebrate!

Forest school adventures

As part of our “Autumn wow week” celebration, we explored forest school. We investigated the grounds, climbed trees and we even made our own magical potions. We had great fun and warmed ourselves up, by drinking hot chocolate!

Autumn days

We investigated seasonal changes this week. We listened to a range of non-fiction texts, learnt more about Autumn and explored the school grounds for natural objects and mini-beasts. We loved listening to the “Leaf man” story and we used what we found to create pieces of natural artwork.

Exploding Volcanoes

This week, we used a range of materials and tools to make volcanoes! The children discussed how volcanoes were created, they moulded their preferred shape and then painted their final design, using appropriate colour choices.

Discovering dinosaurs!

We had a surprise visitor into the classroom this week! A mysterious dinosaur entered the room when we were playing outside!
He left a trail of footprints, eggs and he even left a huge mess in the small world and paint area. The children had great fun being dinosaur detectives, mark-making and talking about their personal experience.

Exploring Outdoors!

Reception enjoyed the sunshine this week in our outdoor area. They had great fun exploring the mud kitchen, playing with the small world, balancing and experimenting with water!
