Key Weekly Information


  • Miss Stevenson is out of the classroom on Monday afternoons and alternate Wednesday mornings. Mrs Kiernan will be covering the class during these times
  • Visits to the wildlife area will be on a Thursday afternoon. Please ensure your children have appropriate clothing as we know how quickly the weather can change!




In Reception we follow the Early Year Foundation Stage. If you would like more information you can view our full curriculum here:


Our topic for Spring will be 'The World Around Us'. This topic encourages the children to explore the world around them, by noticing patterns and changes in their environment. With some chillingly cold weather already we have enjoyed exploring ice and find different things that have become trapped in the ice overnight in our outside area. In our wildlife area we have also been noticing the changes of seasons. There are now no leaves left on many of the trees (there are still a few apples though!!). Children will also be encouraged to discover and ask questions about animals and to discuss how they differ to one another. 

What are we learning at the moment?


(Spring Term)

  • We are learning to apply the skills we are learning in phonics to our reading and writing
  • We are learning to be 'persevering parrots' in everything we do by not giving up!
  • We are learning to challenge ourselves in our busy learning by doing things we wouldn't normally do, or find tricky
  • We are learning to play and socialise with other children in our class, including learning to solve problems independently
  • We are learning to be resilient learners, confident to take risks through engaging in activities in our 'busy learning' time
  • We are learning to listen attentively to others, and offer appropriate questions and comments
